HOLIDAY DIY | New Years Eve Party!

It’s just a couple days before we ring in the New Year, and if you are throwing a party, some DIY projects are a must! I have been working on a few ideas to amp up your event, including my newest obsession: Confetti balloons! They are fun to make, and even more fun to pop and bask in the confetti magic as the clock strikes midnight (my trick to get the confetti to stick all over is an ice cube inside the balloon). My other all time favorite thing are photobooths, they are the absolute best way to make memories. Create a festive backdrop and some props (emojis, duh!) so your guest can get into character for their end of the year photo. More ideas, and the steps to make each after the break. And stay tuned on @ispydiy Instagram for some exciting news and details on tuning in to see these projects live on TV! Woot! Happy 2015!
