Cricut Free Shape Tutorial: Star Wreath
Cricut Free Shape Tutorial: Making A Star Wreath
Tis' the season for wreath making and with this wreath, you could have it up all year round! This is also a free shape tutorial in Cricut Design Space meaning that any maker with a Cricut Machine, can create this.
You can access the ready-to-make project that I created here.
But if you fancy a go at creating your own, here is how to do that!
You will need:
Hot Glue Gun
3D Foam Pads
How to make:
Eight Point Star
Take a diamond shape from the shapes area in Canvas.
Select the diamond and you will see a little lock icon. Click this to unlock it. This now means we can change the aspect ratio. Reshape to long and thin.
Duplicate this shape rotating 45 degrees until you have an eight point star. (You may want to make the ones on diagonal slightly smaller).
Select all and use the weld tool in the bottom right corner on desktop or select the 'Actions' menu on tablet/mobile device.
Four Point Star
Take a circle from the shapes area (on the bottom panel if on a tablet device or on the left-hand side on a desktop).
Duplicate this circle four times and place each one at each corner of the original circle(use the grid to help you).
Selecting the original circle and one of the corner circles use the slice tool (this is in the bottom right corner or in the Actions tab on a tablet). You can only slice two layers at a time. The slice tool cuts into any overlapping shape. Always select the original circle and a corner and continue to slice until you have cut your four-point star (you can see in the middle this is your star!)
Remove all the parts you do not need. Keep the four-point star to us on your wreath.
Wreath making instructions
Duplicate these shapes in a variety of sizes and begin to style what you would like on the wreath. I added the word dreamer in a Design Space font but you could use any of your own fonts you may have.
Cut out your materials!
Assemble your starts together first. For each layer, I used 3D foam pads to create depth.
Grab a glue gun and secure your images onto your wreath!
