For our New Years Eve dinner, we have made Confetti Baubles to put at each place setting. They are easily made by filling a plain glass bauble with confetti. We added a vinyl 2013 to the outside of the glass. To stop the baubles rolling around the table, we have positioned them on Chinese soup spoons.
You will need:
DIY Glass Baubles (usually available from craft stores – should be on sale at this time fo the year).
Optional: Cricut Digital Cutting Machine and white vinyl.
We went crazy punching out coloured circles with the hole punch, until we had a big pile of confetti. We then carefully filled each bauble with a couple of tablespoons on confetti. We cut the numbers for 2013 in white vinyl using our Cricut machine and positioned them in the middle of the bauble. We tied a small piece of ribbon around the hanging loop.
The Confetti Baubles look so colourful, fun and festive – perfect for New Years!
When I have decided on my One Little Word for 2013, I will write it on a slip of paper and place it in my bauble, which I will hang above my desk as a reminder of what I hope to achieve in 2013. My word for 2012 was update which proved to be a very powerful word and a good focus for some change.
