Add Some Last Minute Sparkle To Your New Year's Eve With Balloon Garland

It's New Year's Eve and we can't wait to celebrate tonight! If you're throwing a party, you have only a few hours left to make things look festive and bright. But it can be done, we promise. Take a few minutes to try this DIY decoration idea from Honeysuckle Life, which will add a great finishing touch to your decor.

Balloons are essential for any big party or celebration, and chances are you've bought some for this occasion too. But the ribbons we normally use to tie them are just so, well, boring. By dressing them up with some sparkly paper, you can turn those bland strands into colorful garland that will be a fabulous backdrop for your big night.
