How many people are in your immediate family? Represent them all with a star on this DIY Family Ornament. The Cricut Adhesive Foil adds extra sparkle and shine to your Christmas tree. On the back of the ornament, add the first letter of your last name or the year. These also make lovely gifts!

First, decide how many stars that you want on the ornament. This will determine how large each star can be. I’m doing 2 large stars (myself and my husband), one medium star (my oldest daughter), and three smaller stars (for the triplets).

Now measure the diameter of the circle.

Open Cricut Design Space. Create a circle (using the “Insert Shapes” button) the size of the one that you measured. We will not be cutting the circle shape, but by designing the stars in the circle, it will be easier to fit the stars in the ornament.

Using “Insert Shapes,” place the stars on the circle in the pattern that you decide based on the size and number of stars that you chose.

Delete the circle.

If you’re doing a letter on the back, go ahead and cut this out, too.

Cut the stars out on the adhesive foil (I’ve also cut my letter for the back of the ornament in this step, too).
