Ways to re-use your Christmas decorations for New Year's Eve, plus an eco-friendly DIY disco ball!

Lots of your Christmas decorations can be reused and repurposed to decorate for a New Year’s Eve party, whether large or small! Not only is it budget-friendly to reuse your decorations, but it’s eco-friendly, too. It’s also a good idea if you’re like me and can’t bear to take the Christmas decorations down before New Year’s! So, here are some ideas to reuse Christmas decorations, plus a DIY disco ball that I just couldn’t resist:

1. Use Christmas ornaments, garlands, and other decorations in a single color palette, like gold or silver, and they become sophisticated and sparkly New Year’s decor – via BHG

2. Make confetti from leftover Christmas stuff, like tinsel, tissue paper, and ribbon – via Elizabeth Anne Designs. (Tip: To make a little, you can just use scissors; to make a lot, use a paper shredder!)

3. Make glitter party hats with tinsel garland trim – via Studio DIY

4. Reuse more of your tinsel garland to make a number banner – via Martha Stewart

5. Reuse Christmas white lights and ornaments as a runnner down the table. Simply place the strand of lights down the center of the table and place a sheer/light piece of fabric over the lights.

6. This one doesn’t exactly fit the theme of reusing Christmas decorations, but it’s still eco-friendly: Instead of throwing away old CD’s, turn them into a disco ball! – via wikiHow
