Cookie Cutter Christmas Ornaments

I may write quite a lot about food, but I sometimes struggle with making traditional Christmas cookies using cookie cutters. We all have our strengths and weaknesses… Sugar cookie cutouts are my weakness and yet, I always seem to have so many cookie cutters. 

Even though I fail to make cutout cookies more than once a decade, I can't resist the gorgeous little cookie cutters every holiday season. Luckily, with a few supplies, they make the cutest Christmas ornaments. Put them together for yourself or gift them to people during the holidays. They'd even be adorable as an adornment on a wrapped present.

What You'll Need
Cookie cutter
Glue gun & glue sticks

1. Start by attaching the end of the ribbon to the cookie cutter with a dot of glue being careful not to burn yourself. Place the dot in the spot where its least likely to be seen or noticed as this is where you'll attach the end piece later as well.

2. Start to wrap the ribbon around the cookie cutter, working your way around until it's completely covered. Pull the ribbon tight to ensure that there are no wrinkles or bubbles in the ribbon wrapping.

3. When you get to the end, trim the ribbon and attach the end with another dot of hot glue.

4. Measure out a length of slightly thin ribbon to the desired length for the hanging loop on the ornament. Attach it to the underneath side of the top of the cookie cutter with hot glue and press tight to secure until it's dry. 

The end result is a lovely Christmas tree decoration that you can hang on your tree year after year! Alternatively, these would be lovely hanging around a bottle of wine that you take to Christmas parties as a hostess gift or attached to a wrapped present instead of a bow.
