New Years Eve Party Ideas:
Noisemaker Centerpiece

Get ready to ring in the New Year with some of our New Years Eve party ideas! And if what you are looking for are some easy ideas for homemade centerpieces, then you might want to try this really quick and easy noisemaker centerpiece. This is a great idea to have your party noisemakers do double-duty. Let them be the decorative focal point of your holiday table settings and then when it's time, all your guests can easily grab a noisemaker and be ready for when the clock strikes midnight. This idea could be used in a candy or nut bowl, or as a decorative center on a food platter. Or you could also use each individual noisemaker skewer as a food pick in large deli sandwiches.

Print and cut out the star template. Then trace and cut out the stars on the hologram paper. Now tape the stars to the end of the pipe cleaners and twist them around something like a wide marker. See photo B. Then slip the marker out of the pipe cleaner.
