I felt like I was on a Sesame Street episode when learning how to sculpt letters and numbers appropriate for New Year’s Eve, lololololol.
I learned how to make numbers and letters thanks to Fewdoit which I found out is really a DVD/video series broken down to YouTube format of a balloon artist named Langerman. He reserved no rights and so his videos are now public domain, and how cool and helpful is that for people like me?!
I learned, 1, 2, 3, 0, H, A, P, Y, N, E, W, and R from him.
Not going to list every video here, but here is the letter A boys and girls,lol.
I learned how to make a two tone top hat by Andre Nolle.
I incorporated the numbers into a top hat to make it a 2013 New Year’s Eve special hat. I used glue dots to keep numbers in place. I made a candy cane wand to glue the numbers to and just connected that to the hat by a single balloon. Then I made spirals to put on the top. It turned out pretty dang cool, lol. Red, black and gold are sharp together.
I used tape and invisible string to hang the letters on wall and had I more time I could have done a nicer job and hidden the tape better but I was pressed for time and had a lot to do.
I also created a champagne glass design as there were none that I could find on YouTube. It came out really well. I used gold for the champagne, silver for the glass and pearl white for the bubbles.
So here it is, My New Year’s Eve decor and festive attire!
I replaced the blue Y with a red one, so you will notice two different Y’s in the pictures. My hubby is modeling my hat and glasses, lol.
We had friends over and everything was a big hit which made me so happy!
Happy New Year Everyone!
A friend told me that whatever you do on New Year’s Eve is what you will be doing throughout the New Year, I was ballooning so I know I am going to love 2013!
