Star Ornament with Vinyl

I partnered up with Expressions Vinyl and a bunch of other fabulous bloggers to bring you DIY ornament ideas made with vinyl. Read my tutorial, then visit all the other posts at the end. >>>VOTE HERE to enter the giveaway<<



This year, I went ahead and did it. I bought myself another Christmas tree! When we first moved into this house a couple of years ago, I knew that a tree would look great in the living room, right between the two front windows. And I was right. We have our fabulously colorful and festive tree in the family room, next to the fireplace, and full of all the cute and special ornaments we've collected over the years.

The one in the living room is all gold and pink and glittery, and I knew a gold vinyl ornament would look wonderful on it.



Here are the supplies you'll need to make your own (some links are affiliate)
Gold vinyl (like from the Christmas vinyl pack from Expressions Vinyl)
Transfer tape
Cricut machine
Blank wood star ornament
White paint


First paint the ornament white. You'll want to get an ornament that's has a space in the middle at least 2.5 inches to place the vinyl cut out, or you'll have to cut it too small and it might have trouble with some of the really thin lines.

While the paint is drying, download the SVG below and upload it to Cricut Design space. Resize it if you need to to fit on your star. 



Cut the gold vinyl. Weed out the extra vinyl and use transfer tape to apply it to the dry star.
If you need some tips, read this great post on how to cut and apply vinyl.

Isn't it just lovely! I hope you'll make one!
