|New Year's Eve
by Brenda Arnold
Good fortune for the new year can
smile on everyone at your party with these fun ribbon-bedecked favors.
What You Need:
1. Cut strips of paper 1-2 inches long (or as needed to fit in ornaments) and 8-1/2 inches wide.
2. Write a fortune or quote on each strip of paper.
3. Roll each fortune into a small scroll and tie with curling ribbon, leaving ends of ribbon long.
4. Place 1 fortune into each ornament. Allow excess curling ribbon to trail out of ornament.
5. Pile the bubbles in a basket or glass bowl.
6. Let each guest choose a bubble and read their fortune aloud to the group.
Metallic poster board
Double-sided foam tape
Thumbtack Soft elastic thread (22 inches long)
2 large paper clips
Shiny metallic pipe cleaners
Shiny metallic pom-poms
To make a cone-shaped hat, cut a semicircle with a 14-inch diameter from the poster board. Roll it into a cone, adjust its size to fit the child, and seal the seam with double-sided foam tape.
To make a chin strap, use the thumbtack to poke a hole through each side of the hat near the bottom, thread one end of the elastic through each hole, and knot a few times to secure it.
To make a headband-style hat, cut out a strip of poster board about 26 inches long and 3 to 7 inches wide (depending on your design). Cut a decorative design along one edge of the strip, fit it around the child's forehead, and secure the seam with two large paper clips.
To decorate the hats, wrap pipe cleaners around pom-poms to make antennae or coil them around a pen to make spirals. To attach a pipe cleaner decoration to the hat, use the thumbtack to poke a hole through the hat, push 1 inch of the pipe cleaner through the hole to the inside of the hat, and duct-tape it down. Attach pom-poms to the hat with double-sided foam tape.
