Repurpose foil Christmas
ribbon into sparkling garland for your
New Year's Eve party...
Adding a little bling to your party glasses and decorations
is as easy as repurposing your leftovers...
Today I'm using 1" gold and silver foil ribbon.
I cut little snips close together all the way down the length of the ribbon being careful not to cut straight through. If you use thicker
ribbon you can cut from both sides into the middle leaving an uncut space down the center of the ribbon.
Holding the ribbons with the back sides together,
start twisting every couple of inches all the way down the ribbon.
And you're done!
You can create different lengths of sparkle ribbon
for different projects at your party...
Wrap it around a rusty spring for a blinged out tea light.
Wrap shorter lengths around the stem of your
wine glasses for a festive New Year's look.
Try other colors and thicknesses of
ribbon for different sparkly looks.
An easy and inexpensive way to add a little bling to your
New Year's Eve party!
This was one of the projects shown by Hometalk on
NBC News NY on December 26th.
