The Cricut Maker 3 is the latest and greatest machine, but it’s not the machine I use most. Yeah, you can cut thicker materials like I used for this DIY Cake Stand, but I usually use my laser cutting machine for those anyway. Read my post about Cricut Maker vs. Explore machines and decide which machine is right for you!

DIY Star Decorations for a New Year’s Eve Party
Don’t be afraid use simple geometric shapes to make party decor! Sometimes simple shapes work just as well as fancy detailed designs (and easy designs are easier to make last minute!) I cut a simple star from glitter cardstock and used them in two different places for the party. First, as 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. A little glue dot on the back of the bows held them on the glasses for the evening.
NOTE: If you’re using a Cricut Explore machine, try thin leather or use the deep cut blade for this project.
I do find it incredible how easy 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 HTV on an artist canvas is such an easy way to make a large project. Traditional adhesive vinyl won’t stick to a prepped canvas, so iron on vinyl works best! 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!
