{ DIY Coolest NYE ideas – New Year Eve Projects } This year we are celebrating my son’s birthday on New Year Eve. We are hosting a superhero birthday party, which transitions into New Year Countdown. I was looking for cool, easy and affordable projects that are sparkly, glittery and festive as well. I found these amazing and coolest NYE ideas. The ideas I am sharing today are fun to make! And some NYE ideas also bring a surprise element into the countdown and that according to me is the exciting part.


New Year is about waiting for the clock to strike 12. And making it noisy and sparkly as the clock ticks is the real essence of the moment.
