For the New Year’s Eve fete in need of a bit more sparkle and shine, we’re all for recreating this disco-era staple. Enter two quick and easy approaches (a classic and one with a modernized twist) for this party decor must! 

The Classic

Materials

styrofoam ball

– hot glue gun

pre-cut mirror tiles

– string or monofilament to hang the ball

Simply affix each mirrored tile to the styrofoam ball, using the hot glue gun, until the entirety of the ball is covered. To hang the disco ball, leave a bit of space to attach a sturdy hook.

Note: Be cautious with the mirrored tiles, as the sharp edges could possibly be harmful. Use a reserved amount of the glue for each respective piece.

The Mini Ornamental

Materials

– glue (we used this universal adhesive)

– ornaments

– monofilament

Cut the thicker pieces of tinsel (or the metallic foil paper) into 1-inch squares and glue each piece onto the ornament, so that one slightly overlaps the other. Once the ornament is completely covered, string the monofilament through, and hang!
