Here’s a neat idea for this New Year’s Eve. If you’re hosting a get-together or dinner party consider this thoughtful treat for your guests — a homemade party cracker! Danielle and Centsational Girl share how.
This decorative tube (an empty paper towel holder in this case) is usually filled with little knick knacks (paper crowns, fortune messages, small toys…) and is wrapped in bright shiny colors. Tradition holds that two people pull from each end of the cracker until it *pops*, emptying out the contents. Read more »

While we may have all seen this neat idea before, I thought I’d take a quick moment to point it out after finding this ‘ornament chandelier’ in a shop in Port Douglas.
So easy to make! These would be beautiful from any hanging lamp pendant or chandalier — or inside a window frame for a glittery display.
These yarn ornaments (or decorative party spheres for any other time of the year) were also showcased in a little eclectic shop here. They’re made by: wrapping yarn or thin colored twine around a perfectly round balloon, covering yarn in a glue + water mixture (similar to paper mache), and waiting until dry before popping balloon. So fun! GIANT ornaments hanging from the ceiling, a staircase or from the mantel in front of the fireplace (when it’s not in use, of course ).
Now… where to find said perfectly round balloon…
