DIY New Years Eve Party Hats

Make these DIY New Years Eve Party Hats for all your guests or set up the materials and let them make their own. There is a lot of time between dinner and  midnight and a creative craft is a great way to fill the time.

Trivia: New Year’s Eve festivities can be traced back to celebrations in Europe that date back before Christianity spread. When many inhabitants in Europe were converted to Christianity, these festivals were merged with Christian beliefs and in time came to mark holidays such as the New Year’s Eve and New Year celebrations.
