    This is more thrifty than crafty, but I used to save all the punched paper dots from three or five hole punchers to use as confetti.

    I also like making Christmas crackers out of paper towel rolls and fill them with candy and trinkets, wrap in foiled papers, tie with a ribbon. I don't do the actual snap part becuase of all the pacemakers among friends and family.

    Curling ribbon just seems so New Years to me. I'd festoon anything with it for a party.

    This might be a little to late, but my mom likes to save chicken wishbones throughout the year in a jar, and then she spray paints them. She has a New Year's drop in party where people can use them to make New Year's wishes.

    Does that count as a craft? I'm not sure.

    Oh, I'm a little embarassed to have offered you the idea, kind of like if I came over to your house with a bunch of bacon sandwiches or something!

    But here is another idea that only polutes the air I guess, a friend of mine at her party has people write something down on a little piece of paper that they want to forget about the year and then they throw it into the fireplace and burn it. It's become quite a tradition, one year she almost didn't do it and people requested it!

    Also, I've been to a crafty party on New Year's day where people are encouraged to spend the first day of the year doing their craft, be it painting, or sewing, or whatever.

    Sorry again about the animal unfriendly suggestion.

    dont worry you didnt know...
    the burning thing is a great idea also the crafting..

    I got this idea i am doing next year.
    If something bothers me im gonna write it in a sheet of paper. at the end of the year you read all of them. Then you put them all in a piņata (hand made or not you decide) and you break it!!!
