Craft Roundup: New Year's Day Family Projects

Settle into 2013 with this crop of DIY fun ideas, including decor, a countdown (relive the New Year's Eve fun!), time capsule and sign to ring in a fresh year

Happy 2013! I hope you had a fun celebration with your family. Today tends to be a quiet day for many parents and kids as they relax and get ready to return to their normal school and work schedules and routines. Why not savor the day off together? Here are some of our favorite New Year-inspired craft projects to keep crafters of all ages entertained.

 

Decorations for New Year's Day

This is one of my favorite projects from Martha Stewart. Use paper scraps and bits of wrapping paper to make a festive arrangement.

 

New Year's Eve Countdown Surprise Bags

Relive the fun of New Year's Eve with this hands-on activity from Cupcakes & Cutlery: On-the-hour goody bags stuffed with gear to get kids revved up, from treats to a dance-party CD. (Maybe use it as a way to ease 'em back into school?)

 

New Year's Time Capsule

What was important to 2012 to your family? Round up some of your favorite bits and pieces – like movie ticket stubs, souvenirs from trips, little notes and more – and create your own time capsule with this cute idea on kellicrowe.

 

New Year's Sign

Gather up the whole family and ring in the New Year with this fun tutorial from Lowe's Creative Ideas, complete with a downloadable "lighted" 2013 sign pattern.
