No spill paint pots are real boss:













Next get your glue bucket, your 2" brush and the Times Square New Years Eve Countdown Ball. Get some clean newspaper and lay it out but keep it folded. Lay the ball right side up on the newspaper and have your babe put glue on it using the 2” brush and glue bucket.




Move the ball to a piece of your half page sales flyer that has been laid out. Have your babe open the pour spout of the confetti glitter. Confetti glitter is an important media for this craft as it will make your ball look more like the Times Square ball.

Need some:

 



Glitter Confetti - 8 oz. Glitter Confetti - 8 oz.
Includes shining diamonds dots hexagons red hearts sequins and stars in a resealable bag. 8 ounces. Does not contain latex.



Have your babe hold the glitter jar and together, pour the glitter over the glue. Remember, your babe may want to shake, but do NOT let them or glitter will fly!!! Remind them, "Pour, not shake." Set the glitter down, pick up the ball and pour the excess glitter on top of the flyer. Next have your babe hold the glitter bottle while you pour the glitter on the flyer back into the jar. Let dry.



Move the sign to a piece of sales flyer that has been laid out. Using your glue bottle, outline the sign. Then have your babe open the pour spout of the glitter. Have your babe hold the glitter jar and together, pour the glitter over the glue. Remember, your babe may want to shake, but do NOT let them or glitter will fly!!! Remind them, "Pour, not shake." Set the glitter down, pick up the sign and pour the excess glitter on top of the flyer. Next have your babe hold the glitter bottle while you pour the glitter on the flyer back into the jar. Let dry.


 


Go back to your newspaper and lay out the letters backwards, With your glue bucket and 2” brush, have your babe glue letters then place them onto the sign spelling out “Happy New Year!” and let dry. When placing more letters on the newspaper, be sure to place them on a dry area. If there is no dry area, fold the wet page in half, then move the fold to the top of the newspaper. Let dry. 


 


Now you need to cut your tagboard and your construction paper backing at least 9” X 34” using your paper cutter. If you need to overlap to achieve the measurements, add ½” each time you need an addition until the measurements are correct. This will be much more difficult to cut by hand as you will need a ruler or yardstick and a pencil, then measure and draw lines, then cut. Make no mistake about it, a paper cutter is the BOMB as it saves MEGA time and frustration. Keep in mind if you have to overlap, you must assemble the each backing first by gluing the overlapped pieces using your glue bottle, then let them dry. 





After your backing has dried, layout some old newspaper spreading it to be longer than 34”. Get your glue bucket and your 2” brush. Lay the tagboard backing on the newspaper. Have your babe dip the brush into the glue, then apply it to the entirety of the tagboard. Now place the construction paper backing onto the tagboard and let dry. This step will reinforce your backing to make it stronger.

 


Get some clean newspaper and lay it out but keep it folded. Lay the sign on top of the newspaper, have your babe glue it, then place it near the bottom of the backing on the construction paper side. Next lay out the numbers back side up in rote on the newspaper and have your babe glue these using the 2” brush and glue bucket. Place the number 1 (one) near the top of the sign on the left hand side of the backing. Glue each number in rote on top of the last using the ball as a guide for spacing. The ball when sliding should be able to center beside each number clearing the other numbers. Remember when placing more numbers on the newspaper be sure to place them on a dry area. If there is no dry area, fold the wet page in half, then move the fold to the top of the newspaper. Let dry. 


Using the razor blade, make an @ 1” slit on the right side of the numbers beside the 10 and another slit beside the one. Again, use your ball as a guide for spacing. The ball when sliding should be able to center beside each number clearing the other numbers.


Using your glue bottle, reinforce the slits by gluing around them, and let dry.


Whew!!! We are just about finished. Take your ½” elastic and thread it through the slits measuring it to fit with an overlap of @ 2”. Get your glue gun and glue sticks. If you need one, here is a good selection:

Low-Temp Glue Gun Low-Temp Glue Gun
Safe and easy to use; the low temperature feature prevents burning from hot glue. Comes with 3 glue sticks. Not recommended for use by children. Clear Refill Sticks come in a set of 12 measuring 5/16D x 4L.

Keeping your elastic threaded through the slits, glue the ends together on the tagboard side of the backing with the glue gun. Slide the glued ends to the top of the slit. Next turn the backing over and using the gun again, glue the ball onto the elastic at the top making sure you lift the elastic when adhering and let it cool before releasing it to prevent it from sticking on the construction paper.



NOW DIG IT!!! Countdown to the New Year by sliding the ball down beside the correct number during the last 10 seconds of the old year.

Supplies:
