New Year’s Eve Party Headband Directions
First, select your materials to cut. I went with the traditional glamorous black and gold that looks good at every New Year’s Eve party, but these would also be fun in an array of bright colors. JOANN’s paper aisle is one of my favorite places to shop — they have such an amazing selection and I always come away inspired to make all sorts of paper projects. I chose a chunky glitter paper for the 2018 and the party hat, and a smooth black cardstock for the 2018.
Cut out your headband decorations using your Cricut. For the thicker glitter cardstock, I used the “cereal box” setting with “more” pressure, and then I had it cut twice (to do this, cut once and without removing the mat from the machine, hit the Cricut button to have it cut a second time). Definitely use a strong-grip mat for the heavier glitter cardstocks.
Once you have all of your pieces cut, you’ll notice that each of the letters have a tab on the bottom. Fold the tabs under and use that to glue to the headband. For the two text headbands, I started in the center of the word and worked my way down each side—it’s more likely to be centered that way!
If you are embellishing with tinsel, you may need to trim it down a bit — I cut about 1/2″ in all the way around so you could still see the numbers in 2018. I ended up not using tinsel on the Cheers headband because it covered up so much of the letters! Tinsel-like ribbon might be a good option if you have some!
For the party hat, cut two pieces of tinsel — one to go at the bottom of the hat, and a tiny piece to go at the top. Hot glue these as well.
Don your cute new year’s eve party headband and you’re ready to watch the ball drop, glass of champagne in hand!
