Other than a midnight kiss, there’s nothing that says “New Year’s Eve” more than champagne! If you’re planning on toasting the new year with a glass of bubbly, you’ll want to use your Cricut or other cutting machine to make all of these champagne-themed crafts, perfect for ringing in the new year. Even better, all of these projects are super easy, making them simple to make after Christmas but before New Year’s Eve.
Today we’re going to be making five projects—champagne flutes, cocktail napkins, stir sticks, a banner, and some quirky bubble decor. You’ll need a Cricut Explore or Maker and you can find all the other materials you’ll need at your local JOANN or on their website. Did you know that JOANN now carries their own line of adhesive vinyl? They have cool metallic “laser” and “fractal” versions that I’ve never seen before—super festive and perfect for some of the projects we’re making today! I also used a couple of Cricut-brand vinyls to create an array of metallic fun!
All of these SVG files can be downloaded using the box below. You can also get help uploading files to Cricut Design Space here.
Sip Sip Hooray Banner
- Black cardstock
- Gold and silver “Laser” adhesive vinyl by JOANN
- Silver “Fractal” adhesive vinyl by JOANN
- Gold holographic and foil iron on
- Twine or ribbon
- Silver paper
- Stir Sticks
- White napkins
- Iron or EasyPress
This banner is great strung behind a champagne bar or across your mantel. Upload the SVG to Cricut Design Space. Cut the banner pieces in black and the letters in gold and silver adhesive vinyl. There’s no need to weed the negative space around the letters—just pick up the corner of the letter with your fingernail like a sticker. These letters are big enough to hand-place—you don’t need transfer tape.
Place the vinyl letters on the black banner pieces. Then thread a piece of ribbon through the holes in the banner pieces and hang!
Champagne Flute Decals
- Gold and silver “Laser” or “Fractal” adhesive vinyl
- Transfer tape
- Champagne flutes (I used stemless because I’m clumsy!)
- Rubbing alcohol
These decals are one of my favorite New Year’s Eve party ideas! Upload the SVG to Cricut Design Space. Cut the words in gold and silver adhesive vinyl. Weed the negative space around the words and cut to separate. Clean your glasses with a little rubbing alcohol to prepare your surface.
You’ll need to use transfer tape to transfer your words from the backing paper to the glass. Simply cut a piece of transfer tape slightly larger than your word, peel off the backing paper on the transfer tape, and burnish the transfer tape onto the word.
Then peel up and your word should remove cleanly from the backing paper and stick to the transfer tape.
Then place on your glass, burnish again, and peel off the transfer tape at a 45° (or more) angle.
Hand-wash your flutes—the vinyl may come off in the dishwasher.
Iron On Cocktail Napkins
I love this idea because you can take inexpensive napkins and make them look custom-designed! Upload the SVG to Cricut Design Space. Make sure to mirror your iron on and cut the decal in gold iron on vinyl (also called heat-transfer vinyl or HTV). Weed the negative space around the words.
I like using my Cricut EasyPress for this project because I can set the time exactly, vs guessing with a household iron. You’ll want to set your EasyPress to its lowest setting—250° and a shorter press time. Start with 15 seconds and see if that works to adhere your iron on. If not, press again. Peel off the plastic liner and you’re done!
Tassel Stir Sticks
Add even more bling to your glass of champagne with these cute tassel stir sticks! Upload the SVG to Cricut Design Space and cut in gold and silver adhesive vinyl. Carefully peel up the vinyl and then tightly wrap the vinyl around the end of a stir stick.
Super easy, super cute.
- Silver paper (in store)
- Adhesive foam squares
I love this quirky bubble decor! You can use it as confetti, tape to a well, or string to make a garland. Upload the SVG to Cricut Design Space and duplicate it 4 times so you have 12 bubbles (or more or less, depending on what you’re making! Cut in silver paper. Use the foam squares to adhere to your backdrop, if desired — I like how it gives them a bit of a 3D feel!
