Did everyone have a wonderful New Years! We did! We decided last minute to have a little party with some of our friends and had a wonderful time. I had planned on playing games, but we all ended up just talking and eating way too much. The 10 kids that were here ran around like crazy and had a blast playing with each other.
Two of our friends have little babies so I planned a little kids count down at 9:00 so we didn't keep our company late. Then the older kiddos could still feel like they celebrated. We had our little countdown then went outside to do fireworks and toast in the "New Year". All were having a great time that everyone stayed until 11:30! It was a great way to spend the last day of 2016.
I shared these adorable Cup of Cheerful Noisemakers over at The Crafting Chicks last month, but still wanted to share with my readers here!
I had a few left over supplies from when I made these adorable Vintage Inspired Christmas Ornaments so we put them to good use! You truly could use what you had on hand. My boys had fun helping me fill these and of course sprinkle the glitter. And by fun, I mean they had fun making a mess and I didn't mind one bit. I happen to love glitter everywhere!
Here is what you'll need.
Plastic Wine Glasses
Glitter or Confetti
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Trace circles onto the backside of the glittered cardstock and trim around slightly larger than the circle.
If the bottom of the cup comes off (like most plastic glasses) hot glue it into place.
Place some bells (I did 5) glitter or confetti into the cup.
Put hot glue around the rim of the glass and quickly place the glittered cardstock circle over the top, glitter facing up. This will keep the bells and confetti in place.
Hot glue the outside rim of the glass and immediately sprinkle with glitter. Work in small sections to make it easier.
Tie a ribbon around the base.
