DIY Mini Bow Ties

These festive DIY mini bow ties are a fun and unique way to dress up glasses and more for New Years Eve, Awards Viewing parties, and milestone celebrations.

Ever since I published these ideas for a movie party last year, I’ve gotten emails and feedback asking about how I made the mini bow ties that adorn the champagne glasses.  

I decided this would be a great time to share a diy tutorial for them. Especially since I used them once again in this years Oscar themed party.

This is a simple little project but I think the result can make a great impact especially for New Years Eve, or other glamorous or formal celebration.  

Once you make a batch of these mini bow ties you can dress up glasses, drink stir sticks, even use them as photo booth props.  Here’s how to do it.

How to Use Mini Bowties in Party Decor

  • I think these glasses look cute lined up on the “red carpet” for an Oscar’s viewing party. Just use another strip of red felt fabric to create this look.
  • They also work great on a New Years Eve late night party buffet attached to push pops.
  • And you can make your own drink stir sticks with them too.
