I go crazy when I decorate for holidays. I start in October and don't stop until Easter, but I never really do anything for New Year's Eve. My husband bet me that I couldn't decorate our mantle with things I have around the house. This is what I came up with.

I printed 2014 on card stock and glittered the hell out of it.

Then I made a quick banner with some bells I had left over from Christmas and some wrapping paper ribbon. I printed "Ring in the New Year" using circus letters, cut them out, punched holes in them, a little gold sharpie and there ya go!

Last, I had some little horns left over from other parties. I placed them, with the ribbon, around the mantle.



2014 is ready to be celebrated!
