Christmas Cookie Cutter Ornaments

My trusty glue gun was fired up once again to make some new ornaments for an upcoming exchange.  I made a bunch of these a few years back and thought it was time to revive the tradition. All you need are some cookie cutters and embellishments like buttons or crystals.

You’ll need a cookie cutter in the open style made of metal. Start by gluing a loop of ribbon on the top for hanging. Then glue rows of buttons on the cutter, using lots of different types and sizes. Glue more buttons on top of others to fill in spaces. On this ornament, I also glued buttons to the inside.

I found this red candy cane shape and started with red buttons. I forgot to do the loop first on this one.

Red buttons were glued in rows all the way around.

White buttons glued on top of the red ones create the candy cane look.

The angel started with the cording for hanging.

Then white buttons were added all around.

Another tree started with clear snowflake beads.

Then I added some pearls.

The last tree got satin ribbon roses with small crystals for light accents.

You can really use whatever you have on hand. They make really pretty additions to the Christmas tree, great package tie-ons, and special little gifts for quilters and bakers.

  2. I love this idea and I love buttons! I have a whole stash of cookie cutters and never use them, I am not a big baker so this is a great idea for me to use them. Thanks for your inspiration and for visiting!
