7 Genius DIY Projects For A New Year’s Eve Wedding (Or Any Party!)

A New Year’s Eve wedding should be the ultimate party! Use lots of metallic details and mix in fun treats for your guests, like edible escort cards and foodie favors. Make your own festive additions to the party with the DIY wedding tutorials below, from the one-step homemade cake topper to a minty favor for those midnight kisses. (Hint: these projects work just as well for a New Years Eve party, too!)

Sparkly Pipe Cleaner Cake Topper

All it takes is a straw and sparkly pipe cleaners to create these fully customizable cake toppers! Use your monogram, write out your wedding date or create a design in hearts. Here’s the how-to!

Popcorn Escort Card With Glittery Clothespin

It’s an edible escort card! Apply glue to the front of a wooden clothespin and dip in silver glitter. Repeat for each guest, then clip simple black and white escort cards to white paper bags. Fill with a light snack like kettle corn, trail mix or peanuts for guests to eat while they settle into the reception.

Metallic Spray Paint Vases

To create these gilded beauties buy inexpensive cylindrical glass vases in bulk from a floral supply store. Then, use painter’s tape to create vertical, horizontal and diagonal stripes of various widths and cover with metallic spray paint. Follow this step-by-step guide to do it!

Gold Paper Table Runner

Decorate your head or dessert table with a glitzy geometric table runner! Use a punch with glittery paper to create the circles, then hot glue the shapes together. Here’s how to make it yourself !

Match & Sparkler Send-Off Set

Tie personalized matchbooks to a few sparkler sticks so guests are prepared for the send-off and can leave with a token of your gratitude. Order your personalized matches at The Knot Shop and simply tie twine around the sparklers and use a dot of hot glue to complete this easy project.

Flower Girl Confetti Crowns

Make a flower crown for your flower girl by bending wire into a circle, applying hot glue to the outside edge of the wire and dipping the edge in shiny confetti. Stack a few outside of a top bun for the chic look above. Use this photo tutorial to help you make them!

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
