Here is another fun handmade ornament idea for you! These simple ornaments are made from cookie cutters (we used tiny ones, but you could use any size) and scrapbook paper for a classic, vintage feel.
You may even want to stock up on cookie cutters after Christmas this year, when they’re on clearance, to do this one next year. Otherwise, be on the lookout for ornaments at thrift shops and garage sales — or in your own cabinets, which is where I found mine — rather than paying full price!
- cookie cutters
- scrapbook paper
- white glue
- x-acto knife
- string or ribbon
Begin by tracing the outline of your cookie cutter onto the piece of scrapbook paper you want to use as the background. Trace as close to the edge as you can get.
Carefully run a thin bead of glue along the outline.
Align the cookie cutter and gently press it into the glue, being careful not to smear the glue.
Let sit until completely dry.
Use a sharp x-acto knife to cut out the ornament.
Glue a ribbon or string to the back of the ornament and let dry completely.
