Spruce up any old pitcher with this easy and removable diy!The end of the year is my favorite time of year for hosting parties and entertaining (not that I ever need a reason to throw a party). Maybe it’s the decor, or the abundance of champagne, but holiday parties get me every time. If you want to give your serving gear a golden makeover, but don’t want to commit to it year round, then this easy and removable tutorial is for you! Here’s how:

Time: 30 minutes
Materials: contact paper, circle punch, scissors

Spruce up any old pitcher with this easy and removable diy!I decided to go with gold contact paper because A. you can never go wrong with gold and B. because it matches my Chambord bottle perfectly. Ultimately I think the more gold the better, but you can pick any pattern of contact paper you want.

Spruce up any old pitcher with this easy and removable diy!Cut out a section of contact paper and punch your holes. I found it easiest to get a clean hole when you punch with the back paper side up. Peel the paper off your dots and apply to your pitcher. Fill with your favorite drink and you’re ready for the party to begin!

Once you’re ready to have your pitcher back to basic, just peel off the dots and wash. Easy as that!

Spruce up any old pitcher with this easy and removable diy!And for the perfect drink for any get-together, add 1/4 oz Chambord Black Raspberry Liqueur to a glass of campaign. Garish with a raspberry and serve!

Add some holiday flair to your walls with this diy ornament confetti!I used a mix of Duck® Tape and glitter tape for the ornaments. They come in a variety of patterns and colors so you can customize it to match your other holiday decor!

Add some holiday flair to your walls with this diy ornament confetti!Start by cutting out a circle out of your cardboard. This circle cutter will allow you to adjust the size of the ornaments (mine were done on the smallest setting).

Add some holiday flair to your walls with this diy ornament confetti!Next, cover with tape. Trim the excess with scissors. You’ll follow the same steps to make the bulb topper, just cut your cardboard in the shape of a trapezoid. And if you want to add a hook, you can either cut one out of construction paper (what I did) or use floral wire.

Add a bit of Duck® washi to the back to hang on the wall and you’re done! I chose to hang mine in the shape of a tree, but how cool would an entire wall of these look?! You could even use these to spell out a word (like Merry, X-Mas, etc) if you really wanted to be ambitious.
