Celebrate New Years Eve in style with a creative, fun, playful hand-crafted sparkling headband!  You can start by cutting out simple shapes, such as a star or heart with cardboard (use a cookie cutter as a stencil if you like), cover in glue and sprinkle on the glitter… you can seal the glitter with a spray adhesive if you have some, then attach to your glitter-ized shape with hot glue to any headband you have lying around your house… and voila!  a quick, easy craft and party accessory :)

Another method like the one created in the first picture would be to cut out an oval shape and hot glue sparkly silk flowers to it, and then hot glue that onto a headband… so easy, fun and unique!  You can find sparkling silk flowers at your local craft store.

Handmade Ornaments

My idea of a simple craft and fun last minute Holiday gift or activity for adults or kids are painted ornaments.  You can use a salt dough recipe or a cornstarch recipe (as featured in the first picture), or you can use wooden shapes, or even polymer clay.  I love the salt dough or cornstarch based ornaments because I always have those ingredients around my house.

Whichever recipe you choose, have fun painting it with simple geometric shapes and patterns to create a folk style ornament (my personal favorite!) that is simple and easy for just about anyone.  Add a fun ribbon to finish your piece, and voila!  You have the perfect last minute holiday gift or craft!  Enjoy! :)
