Supplies for Paper Plate Noisemakers


  1. First, you will need to paint the backside of the paper plates black. You can also choose different colors like gold or silver. Set aside and allow them to dry.
  2. Next, decorate one of your plates by adding stickers and glitter.
  3. After you decorated your plate, glue a jumbo craft stick to the inside of the backside of the non-decorated paper plate. Make sure to attach the popsicle stick about halfway down the plate for stability.
  4. Place a small amount of jingle bells inside of the plate above the craft stick.
  5. Finally, apply hot glue around the edge of the plate then carefully add the decorated paper plate on top. Use staples if you are not comfortable using a hot glue gun. You can wrap a ribbon, garland or yarn around the craft stick to complete your New Year’s Eve paper plate noisemakers.

I love how these turned out! Each noisemaker will look unique and can be customized using stickers, paint and glitter. You can also use specialty craft sticks that come in different designs and colors. I hope your kids enjoy these paper plate noisemakers and everyone has a wonderful NEW YEAR!
