The best part about the holidays is gathering with people you love. If you're like me, you somehow always end up hosting reunions, parties, and holiday shindigs—whether they're planned or not. If you're hosting a huge bash or just ordering in pizza, here's your chance to deck the halls for the occasion.
Need inspiration? We've done the hard part for you. From creating a dazzling New Year's Eve snacks table to a tiny reindeer made of wine corks, we've got you covered with some of the most splendid holiday home decor ideas from the hub of internet crafts: Pinterest.
Grab your hot glue gun and a bottle of wine (for crafts, guys! If you want to drink, grab an extra bottle) and prepare to transform your home into a winter wonderland.
Wander into the great outdoors and gather some wood (oh my gosh, no, buy it from Home Depot or something) and paint a seasonal message upon it to give your home an adorable sign that you can keep up long after New Year's Eve.
No empties? No problem. Pour and drink while you use some paint, some felt, and some creative thinking to transform that drained pinot into a wintery companion.
These tin can luminaries will speak to your hipster soul at Hanukkah gatherings. It's lit.
You guys—this one actually is as easy as it looks. Grab some cardstock, some glue, some twine, and go to town. Oh, and if you're not singing the dreidel song throughout the entire assembly, you're doing it wrong.
A quick trip to the dollar store will take your table from bah humbug to very merry. Plus, this is probably the only holiday where you can justify putting your silverwear in a sock, so there's that.
Gather your crew, pop bottles, and make this one as you go. Finesse your reindeer as you please, using pipe cleaners, beads, and all of those ribbons that you save for no good reason.
Up your NYE game by doing more than handing out noisemakers. This New Year's Eve table dazzles in black, white, and gold—colors we know NYLON-ers love. Pick a color scheme that speaks to you and use it to create an Instagram-worthy setting.
Suck it up and hand over the cash at Party City—this bubbly backdrop is worth it.
Instead of just commenting #goals on other people's photos, set some of your own! If you need inspiration, wait until the bubbly hits. We have a feeling you'll think of something.
Bet you never thought there were so many uses for empty wine bottles! Here's another craft for your empty drinking vessels. Cheers to 2017!
