Oh yes, we are heading into the New Year’s Eve season. Yes yes, I know, Christmas isn’t even been and gone.. but you know how I like to get ready.. and even more.. how I like to help YOU get ready.. and for me “Christmas goes from the 1st of Advent (often in November) right through to 3 Kings Day (12 Days after Christmas)… and New Year’s Eve falls right inside that!!!! We have shared many New Year’s Eve Ideas with you in the past, as well as some super fun New Year’s Eve traditions from around the world. Today, we are preparing for the great New Year’s Eve countdown. Bringing together a set of 12 New Year’s Eve Countdown Activities to keep you and the kids (especially the kids!!) busy and excited about the quickly approaching New Year. Anyway, I am waffling… Once again, I have joined forces with Hattifant and we have a great Printable New Year’s Eve Garland for you to print, colour, write on and make. It is a great way to reflect on the year gone by with the “grateful” prompts, as well as look forward to the coming year (with the “wishes” prompts)… make your own “sparkly” jewel garland for New Year’s Eve. Hattifant as a gorgeous DIY Thank You Card version for you to print, colour and write for relatives.

How to make your New Year’s Eve Garland
Oh we do love to colour!! These Printable New Year’s Eve garlands are so quick and fun to make. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did!!
As theme is “jewels”, you can pick any gorgeous colour theme you wish! We went with blues, purples and pinks. This is also a great collaborative project.. you can have young and old joining in with making these garlands. Draw, chat and talk about the year gone by… and the things you wish and hope for in the coming New Year!
We had a bit of an impromptu drawing session on the floor.. well why not.. and in our pyjamas…
We used some lovely water colour pencils, that you can first draw with and then afterwards go over with a we brush.
Once fully dry cut out, hole punch and add your wishes for the coming New Year.
And now it is time to string those jewels up.. I decided to add them with a little extra twine and make a small bow.. so you can have all the jewels “forward facing”, but you can also add a little tape…
And you are finished! A lovely New Year’s Eve Party decoration full of family memories and dreams!
