Are you throwing a New Year’s Eve party? Make the party extra festive by adding some finishing touches to your decor. Try a New Year’s centerpiece like this one using some of your Christmas ornaments:

Countdowns make a fun decor element and coordinates well with the clock theme. You can find directions on making these corkscrew countdown numbers on www2.fiskars.com in their crafting section.
