I love decorating the house and outside for Christmas but I don't like taking it down, the house looks bare and it's a whole year until we get to do this wonderful thing again. I do not take things down until January 2nd. I do however, decorate my entry table for New Year's. This year I was inspired by my favorite Etsy shop "Polly's Paper Studio." I will place a link below. She has wonderful cards, projects, etc. and I love her very reasonable digital downloads. Her New Year's bingo cards were my inspiration. I decided to use what I have so I also used my sparkly wreath I made last year - so easy to do, I will also place a link below for the post with complete instructions.
The first thing I did was to print out the bingo cards on gold colored card stock and gather some fans (picked them up after Christmas last year 1/2 off - did not know what I would do with them but loved them) paper garland, gold ribbon and some glitter blast paint and scotch foam double stick tape - will not hurt your furniture, etc.
I just cut out some paper to cover the images and taped it with drafting tape - will not tear the paper away when removing and I also wanted to paint the little clothes pins.
A quick spray in a cardboard box and then into my "paint booth" my oven with the light on.
They came out perfect and sparkly and ready to cut.
They came out so cute and sparkly. I ran out of paint so the clothes pins did not get very sparkly but that's OK you don't really see them.
The centerpiece and inspiration besides the bingo cards. My keepsake from New Year's 2000 - Christopher Radko music box globe and of course it plays Robert Burns "Old Lang Syne."
The sparkly wreath from last year - sorry about the arm! LOL! I will put a link below for the wreath.
The fans placed in little photo stands and the rest of the garland draped around them.
The little sparkly bingo New Year's cards just add a sweetness to the entry.
Just added a coordinating bow to the pot with lights that sits next to the entry table.
