As you can see, this is a very easy project and the combinations to make unique New Year headband for kids are endless! Feel free to get colored headbands to begin with and to play with different glitter colors.

If you have expert in-house artists or are looking to keep the kids busy for longer, you can make this New Year craft for kids a bit more challenging as well. Just ask them to apply a gradient technique to the numbers (you’ll need several colors for this) or to paint the headband.

I hope you have fun making this and of course, have a very happy New Year.

Happy crafting!
