Last New Year’s Eve, I printed out one word resolutions and created a fringe wall as a little takeaway for my neighbors who were coming over to celebrate. It was so interesting to see which word people picked. Everyone picked something different, it was an insightful peek into their inner selves.
My daughters and son picked one, too. I picked focus and accept. At the end of the night my husband tore some words off and put them in a hat for everyone to pick. This was a fun way to play, too, because the word you picked become more like your fortune. Or, if you really want to stir the pot (and who doesn’t at 1am in the new year) you can pick one for your spouse. Look out! I picked relax for my hubby, which got me a giant eye roll. I’m all about subtlety.
If you want to make a fringe wall of your own, download these free templates! I printed each page out on a different colored paper.
