Rock in New Year's Eve with Glam Party DIY Ideas

Whether your countdown for New Years is at 9:00 for the kiddos or midnight for the grown-ups, here are some of the best DIY ideas the Web has to offer.

1. Thumbtack Votives: Add some sparkle to your humdrum votive candle by simply pushing gold thumbtacks into the wax. Get the how-to at Spark and Chemistry.

2. Picture-Perfect Resolution: Drip gold paint down a fadeless black paper. When dry, hang. Supply gold markers so guests can write down their New Year's resolutions. Get the how-to from Leslie Kaplan Event Design.

3. Confetti Poppers: Pass these out to the kiddos so they can really bring in the New Year with a glittery pop! Get the how-to from Wedding Bells.

4. Cheers to DIY: Take one down and pass it around. But before you do, use a paint pen to decorate plain glasses with stripes and polka dots. You can also do this with shot glasses, as well. Get the how-to at A Thoughtful Place.

5. Pipe Cleaner Drink Stirrers: Make stars, hearts, numbers and letters out of pipe cleaners and stick the bottom end into clear straws. Then use them as drink stirrers. Get the how-to at Say Yes.

6. Cardboard Numbers: Wrap large cardboard numbers (make sure it's for 2016!) in tinsel and hang on the wall. This centerpiece is sure to sparkle. Get the how-to at Ruffled Blog.

7. Champagne Shots: Mix your fave bubbly with gelatin and sugar. Then sprinkle with white sparkling sugar. Then top with a festive toothpick. How divine! Get the how-to at Erica's Sweet Tooth.

8. Glitterize Your Bubbly: This fun bottle is a perfect NYE hostest gift. Spray your champagne bottle with spray adhesive and then sprinkle the gold glitter on. It's that easy. Get the how-to at Evite.

9. Glittery Centerpiece Vases: Spruce up an old Mason jar with paint and glitter. Then fill it with flowers. Get the how-to at Lily Shop.

10. Gold Brushed Balloons: You can put glitter in your balloons, but everyone has seen that one. Instead, paint the bottom of your balloons with liquid gold leaf for a extra festive vibe. Get the how-to at Pottery Barn Kids.
