Make these easy New Year’s Eve Party Decorations with your Cricut Maker to make your New Year’s Eve parties easier than ever! Using my Cricut Maker, I was able to make several New Year’s Eve Party ideas, including a DIY Star Ornaments with the new Cricut Scoring Wheel (a great way to reuse Christmas decorations!), a DIY Pop Fizz Clink Canvas with Iron On, New Year’s Eve Glasses, and New Year’s Eve Cake Decorations.

New Year’s Eve Party decorations don’t have to be elaborate or expensive to be special – with the Cricut Maker, you can make easy DIY New Year’s Eve Party decorations that make your party feel special!
The Cricut Maker is the newest machine from Cricut and is a great tool for any party. Exclusive to the Cricut Maker is the Adaptive Tool System, which allows for the use of special cutting tools like the Knife Blade, Rotary Blade, and the Scoring Wheel. The Knife Blade is great for thick materials (thicker than any other craft cutting machine!) like the Cricut chipboard used to make a DIY Cake Stand. The Rotary Blade is great for cutting precise Fabric projects, like quilt making. The Scoring Wheel is a step above the original Scoring Stylus, in that it has greater pressure when scoring, allowing for clear and easy folds. I used the Scoring Wheel as well as the original blade along with a variety of cutting materials to create several New Year’s Eve Party Ideas that you can make with your Cricut Maker.
I used a simple star cut out of glitter cardstock in two different places for the party. First, as simple straw toppers that look perfect on black and white stripe paper straws.
When strung together with black and white twine, the stars also make an interesting back drop for the party display. It was so easy to construct with the twine and some tape.
Using Cricut Foil Acetate, I used a Party Hat shape from Cricut Design Space to make cake decorations. I used a variety of party hat sizes as well as the star foil acetate patterns to decorate the top and sides of the cake.
Simple confetti finishes the look of a festive New Year’s Eve Party Cake. Acetate is a unique cutting material, and makes for an unexpected detail that can be used in a variety of ways.

I love the new Cricut leather, and I used the Metallic Gold Leather to make bows for the champagne glasses.
I find it incredible how easily the Cricut Maker cuts thick materials like leather! The cuts are so smooth that it’s hard to believe the little bows aren’t store bought.
One of my favorite projects that will definitely be making an appearance at every New Year’s Eve Party is this “Pop Fizz Clink” canvas I made with Iron On Vinyl!
Using Iron On on a canvas is such an easy way to make a large project without having to use regular vinyl and transfer tape (it doesn’t like to stick to prepped canvas!) The large canvas also makes a statement behind the New Year’s Eve Party Table.
How to Make 3D Star Ornaments with the Cricut Scoring Wheel
I wanted to reuse an inexpensive Gold Christmas Tree I purchased, so I came up with the idea of using black and white 3D star ornaments that could be used at Christmas as well as for a New Year’s Eve Party. Using the Cricut Scoring Wheel, they were easier than I could imagine.
Supplies you need to Make 3D Star Ornaments for New Year’s Eve Party Decorations
–Cricut Cardstock in White and Black
-Glue (I used this Hot Glue gun from Amazon)
-Black and White Twine (Shop the twine I used on Amazon)
Note: I originally wanted to make these ornaments with Cricut Kraft board, but I didn’t like how they turned out. Because they are small, the cardstock is a more desirable product.
Open the 3D star file in Cricut Design Space.

Click “Make It” when you’re ready to cut the project. I made enough star ornaments to fill one sheet of cardstock of each color (8 total ornaments of each color).
Design Space will automatically prompt you to insert the single Scoring Wheel if you’re using the Cricut Maker and cardstock.
The Scoring Wheel makes such crisp lines for folding, which is so important in small items like these New Year’s Eve Star Ornaments.
Fold on each of the lines created by the Cricut Scoring Wheel and glue two stars together to create a front and a back. Add a piece of twine to create an ornament hanger.
They make such a cute little decoration! And being able to reuse the gold Christmas Tree is a plus!
