New Year's Eve Disco Ball- Party Favor (Kid Friendly) Craft

Ahhh New Year's Eve... proof that there really is something even gaudier than Christmas decorations (I say this with a great deal of fondness). Christmas may have the childlike, multicolored, cuteness, but New Year's Eve? Well NYE has all the spangle and sparkle of a Vegas Show Girl's undies.

In that vein, what could be more fun than a mini disco ball as you watch that famed ball drop? This would also work for a kid or tween's themed party.

For this you will need:

  • Styrofoam Craft Balls (I used 3 in)
  • A Bag O' Sequins (for a traditional disco ball look, you can use all silver)
  • Silver Straight Pins
  • Ribbon

First, I used a little hot glue to attach the ends of my ribbon to the Styrofoam ball.

For added strength, I started pinning sequins right on top of the ribbon.

Continue pinning the sequins to cover the ball surface.

(Fairly) Soon, you will have a little disco ball, ready for the dance party!  5...4...3...2...

Happy New Year!


  1. LOVE IT!!!!! I remember attempting something similar back-in-the-day, but it didn't come out half as nifty as this.
    I would keep this up and around all year round!

  2. Peaches, I can just see these strung up in your place (one low enough for Lola to bat at, of course). Can you imagine a bunch of these each a single color!?

  3. Very cute and fun for the kids! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I am sure you could make these for any of the holidays. Pastels for eater, red-white-blue for the 4th of July, browns-pale yellows for Thanksgiving, Favorite colors for kids birthdays, green for St. patty's day, and or even weddings just by using the colors the bride and groom pick.

  5. It should be noted that whilst ordering papers for sale at paper writing service, you can get unkind attitude. In case you feel that the bureau is trying to cheat you, don't buy term paper from it. hot strippers
