Having a Cricut Maker when it’s time to have a celebration is like having a party store right on your desk. There really isn’t a decoration you couldn’t make with your Maker machine! Add to that the amazing variety of materials you can get from Cricut…and well, every day sort of feels like a party.

Every year, I go looking for a few New Years Eve party ideas that I can use to have a little shin dig with my family. It was very exciting to see that there were a TON all ready to go on Cricut Design Space, and I added a few and made some modifications on a few as well. Of course, if you’re having lots of people over, these New Years Eve Party ideas are just as usable. Just make more!

As far as what to make all these incredible New Years decorations with, if you have a minute or two, you should really browse through the Cricut product store–so many things there you can’t get at the craft store or find easily. And the quality is super excellent.

Cricut has set up its Cricut Design Space to allow you to upload, design, or use projects that already exist. There are some free ones in there, but if you pick yourself up a Cricut Design Access subscription, you’ll get access to thousands of images you can use to create. Cricut offers a few different tiers of subscription, but it’s completely affordable at a few dollars a month. It’s like a cup of coffee a month kind of affordable. Totally worth it. Anyway, I use the subscription pieces all the time to create my Cricut things with, and everything on this page today is going to point right over there to Design Space. I believe you can purchase everything a la carte, but lady, treat yourself and sign up for the year package. You’ll use it tons.

In no particular order, here are some New Years Eve party ideas to make with your Cricut Maker:

1. DIY New Years Eve Banner

What you’ll need:

The instructions are with this project in Design Space–adjust for your party colors as you see fit! You can purchase these projects individually, but the Design Access subscription is SO worth it. It’s just a few dollars a month for thousands of designs and fonts.

2. DIY New Years Eve Party Hats

What you’ll need:

For the fascinator, you’ll just hot glue all the cut pieces to the plastic comb in a pleasing fashion. No one way is right! Curl the edges and give it lots of fluff and you’ll have a beautiful piece to wear for your party.

You can make top hats in the same manner. Band them with ribbon and add in the cut pieces until they’re how you want them!

3. DIY Garlands

SO easy to make! Cut them out of paper, cut them out of felt, cut stars, cut circles, whatever! Run them through the sewing machine (full tutorial here) or glue them on a ribbon then layer them together for an impressive display.

What you’ll need:

For tips on how to assemble a garland like this, see this post!

4. DIY New Years Eve Party Attire

Every party needs its own party shirt. Raise a celebratory glass and say “Cheers, Y’all!” The gold foil makes it look fancy. Add some pearls and other sparklies and a tulle skirt (like this one) and it’s party time! P.S. This skirt is my absolute favorite to wear with t-shirts…it’s way comfy and makes all my snarky shirts look really polished.

What you’ll need:

You can see how to make a t-shirt with your Cricut EasyPress here; the method is the exact same, just use gold foil!

5. DIY New Years Eve Cocktail Picks

Fancy up your drink glasses–even if you’re toasting with Sprite!

What you’ll need:

I’ve heard a few mixed reviews on Cricut’s party foil, but I’m going to weigh in and say I love it. Before you could only use this material if you were buying the pre-packaged decorations from the discount store. Now you’ve got a lot more options for sparkly decorating!

A few years ago, I made these picks for a champagne party, and it was fun to revisit them with a new material. See how to make them here, just use your paper pre-cut with your Cricut in the project link above. It saves tons of time.


6. DIY New Years Eve Dangly Decorations

These have to be one of my more favorite things I’ve made with the Cricut. The little dangling metallic streamers you can find at the store, but fancier! This file also takes advantage of all the spare space and cuts confetti from the leftover foil.

What you’ll need:

Doesn’t our model look excited about them, too? Really, she is.

7. DIY New Year Eve Photo Props

These photo props are amazeballs. I love how they look just a little bit quirky and hand-drawn. There is a file here with the full range of the photo props, and the one below has been modified for how I used them!

If you don’t have a Cricut BrightPad already, believe me, the angels will sing when you finally pick one up. It makes seeing the cuts in the glitter vinyl when you’re weeding your vinyl SO much easier. Less eyestrain=good thing!

What you’ll need:

You can also modify the files yourself to say whatever you want. I used glitter vinyl to put the wording on; these are a tad time consuming to make due to the detailed cutting. I didn’t want to add any more time to the effort to individually glue on letters. But find your own lazy here.
