Hey friends! I hope you all had a wonderful, restful holiday. Ours was busy, filled with family & friends, and wonderful as always. Despite feeling a bit sad when the Christmas excitement comes to an end, I love the week between Christmas and New Years (which I am always so fortunate to have off with my husband, since we’re both in education). We are always so productive – in between visiting family and spending time with friends. It’s a great time to organize, clear the clutter, and refresh for a nice new start in the new year.
Do you have wild & exciting plans for NYE? Are you having a celebration of your own? Maybe you’ve got a barcart that needs some dressing up – in which case this little DIY is just for you!
My wonderful husband gave me a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas! I can’t even express how excited I am to figure out everything I can do with this baby. As a little “tester”, I used it to make these letters out of gold mirror cardstock. When it started ‘cutting’, I yelled for my husband to come and see how awesome it was! I know I’m super late to the Silhouette party, but boy am I happy to be here now!
Anyway, you can cut the letters any old way, if you don’t have a Silhouette. Then I folded a sheet of tissue paper in half and taped the letters onto the paper.
I then cut the garland into strips, and taped some pretty white & gold baker’s twine (from the dollar spot at target!) into the center of each strip.
Now my bar cart is all dressed up and ready to party!
I’m also obsessed with some of the other items on my cart right now (still lots of holiday stuff, I won’t take that down until after NYE) -like these awesome fox glasses from Paper Source (another Christmas gift from my amazing husband, though neither of us can tell you what they say).
They match my fox-topped cocktail shaker bought on sale at Target last week.
Our bar cart is stocked to the max with wine (holiday gifts from friends, coworkers, etc.) and two random bottles of tequila that we will probably never drink.
But who knows. Things might get crazy. Cheers! 🙂
