Sorry for the lateness of posting this...nothing like waiting till the last minute to share a fun idea!
I thought about waiting till next year but just couldn't...this is too quick, easy, inexpensive, and a little wacky to not share it with you.
When I think of New Year's celebrations I think of funny hats, noise makers, and...
Champagne glasses overflowing...or sparkling cider...whatever your preference.
I have this light in my dining room that is upturned...which makes is a perfect catch basin for dust most of the year.
Today I decided to put that shape to good use!
I went to Michaels and bought 8 boxes of clear glass (not plastic as they would melt) Christmas balls that were 70% off. I used two sizes, large and medium.
First I put down a wire rack that I use for cooling cookies. That way I used fewer balls...
Then I just started putting them in...I tried to keep the hook end down and not to show.
After it was as full as I could safely get it, I tied a few (with clear thread) to hang over the side to look like an overflowing glass of Champagne!
I would have hung them down farther but if the two year old stood on the table (which he is known to do) he could have reached them with his trusty bat!
An easy, inexpensive, and most of all fun New Year's Eve decoration for your party, get together or like me...
An evening with hubby on the couch!
And here is a preview of one of the photos I have chosen as one of my favorites of the year...
Stay tuned for the rest on Friday!
