I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample from SweetWorks.com for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I’ve enjoyed unplugging from the computer and spending time with my family, even if we’ve been swapping colds for the past couple weeks. 2013 was a great year to me, a new baby and a book deal all in the same year, and I want to go out with a bang. I’m helping a friend with her annual New Year’s Eve kid-friendly party and came up with these easy and edible party favors. She can hang these New Year’s ornaments right on her Christmas tree and pass them out to guests as they leave. The ornaments are filled with edible chocolate candy Sixlets, which comes in a festive gold color. Guests can later (after the candy is devoured) write their favorite memories of 2014, place them inside the ornament and hang on their own trees.


Plastic Ornament Balls
Black Vinyl
Cutting Machine (I used a Silhouette Cameo)
Gold Ribbon
Gold Sixlets (1 – 4.5oz jar makes 3 ornaments)



Step 1: Cut out “hello 2014” stickers using a cutting machine, such as a Silhouette Cameo, out of black adhesive vinyl. Stick the “hello 2014” stickers to the front of the plastic balls.

Step 2: Fill the plastic balls halfway full with edible gold sixlets. Close the balls, shut tight.

Step 3: Attach a piece of gold ribbon to the ornaments for hanging purposes.

 Step 4: Hang on your Christmas tree and pass out to party guests on their way out.
