Sparkly New Years Bowties


New Year’s Eve demands sparkle. Whether it’s confetti, gold and silver decorations, a glittery outfit, or just watching the ball drop—welcoming the New Year should be bright and shiny! If you’re celebrating from home this year, it’s the best time to get a little crafty and create your own sparkly decorations.




For a very simple yet glamorous DIY project, you must try this glittery bowtie pasta. It’s quick and perfect for the kids to help with. There are two equally fabulous variations for this craft. The first is a cute bowtie garland, great for dressing up any mantle, table, or wall. The second is a fancy drink stirrer, great for adding a little sparkle to the refreshments. You can make either or both!




You’ll need bowtie pasta, white glue, a paintbrush, and glitter. To create the garland, you’ll also need string. For the drink stirrers, grab skewer sticks and hot glue.




For either choice, start by creating your glittery bowties. First, brush an even coat of glue onto the pasta. Then cover it in glitter—either sprinkle glitter on top or dip the noodle into a container. You’ll probably have to complete one side of pasta at a time. Let them dry thoroughly.




If you’re making the garland, simply cut off a long string and tie each piece of pasta on with a double knot. Absolutely adorable!

If you want to try the festive drink stirrers, grab the wooden skewers and some hot glue. If necessary, trim the skewers to the right length for your glasses. Hot glue each skewer to a piece of glittery pasta. Let them dry and display!

Either version of this craft will add a sweet dose of pizazz to your New Year’s Eve. Or go all out and make both! Keep in mind: once the pasta is glittery, almost all the work is already done.  Feel free to play with colors of glitter and string—silver and gold are certainly traditional and celebratory, but don’t be afraid to experiment, as well!
