New Years DIY Party Favors

New Years DIY Party Favors

DIY Party Favors 1


I am always looking for frugal ways to entertain and during the holidays I love to send my guests on their way with a special token to remember our gathering. With some simple items from my local dollar store and craft store I can create simple and beautiful DIY Party Favors. These make great decorations during the party and can be displayed at my guests home to enjoy. 

DIY Party Favors 


Clear Glass Wine Glasses ($1 each at Dollar Store) – 1 for each guest

Ribbon ( you need about 6-8 inches per glass) Sparkly colors and patterns are best

Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks

Small Ornaments or Decorations

Floral Sticks

Tea Lights (if wanted)

Decorative stones or rocks

Gift Bag/Basket Stuffing (colors to match ribbon)


  1. Measure out your ribbon for wrapping around the stem. Apply a tiny amount of hot glue and apply end of ribbon to the bottom of the stem.
  2. Wind ribbon up the stem and secure at the top of the stem with hot glue.
  3. Apply hot glue to the ornament or decoration and glue on top of ribbon to stem.
  4. Fill cup with stuffing.

You can also create a similar look but turn it into a candle holder like this one below.
