Four cookie cutters out of the dollar bins is quite a deal – use paper and glue to turn them into DIY cookie cutter ornaments. So easy!

Four cookie cutters out of the dollar bins is quite a deal - use paper and glue to turn them into DIY Christmas ornaments. So easy for adults or for kids! Perfect for tying onto gifts as tags, too.I mentioned on my other blog Washi Tape Crafts that I had gone diving in the Target dollar bins recently. Well, glitter tape wasn’t the only thing that I bought. A four-pack of plastic cookie cutters also caught my eye.

And not because I wanted to make cookies (although now that sounds delicious) – I bought them to make ornaments! And what makes that fantastic is that I already had everything else on hand, so the ornaments were only $.25 a piece for me.

This is a great kids craft or group Christmas craft . . . it’s not hard and everyone can join in. Read on to see how I made these DIY cookie cutter ornaments.

DIY Cookie Cutter Ornaments

Gather These Supplies

  • Cookie cutters – mine were plastic, four for $1
  • Christmas scrapbook paper
  • Coordinating ribbon
  • Craft glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Drill or nail and hammer (something to create a hole)

IMG_2863Here’s my four pack of cookie cutters. No big surprise I couldn’t resist, right?

IMG_2870Trace each cookie cutter onto the back of the scrapbook paper of your choice. It can be Christmas themed but it doesn’t have to be.

IMG_2871Cut out your shapes. I recommend going *slightly* inside the line.

IMG_2873Next you are going to make sure that each of your shapes has a hole at the top. You can do this by drilling, but if you are good with a hammer and nail you can do it that way, too. Just please be careful! Plastic can break easily (so can fingers).

IMG_2874Add glue to the edge of the cookie cutter and press down onto the paper. Wipe away excess glue. Let it dry for several hours. If the paper goes over the edges of the cookie cutter, no big deal. You can trim it away later – or not.

IMG_2919Pick your fancy ribbon (meaning, dig through your stash) and grab some. Tie a knot in one end and pull through the hole. I also put a dab of glue there as well. Let that dry before hanging them up.

I’ve also now crafted with cookie cutters, which means my life is complete!

A crop-a-dile works perfectly to make a hole!

I just wanted to pop over to let you know that I featured your ornament on Creative Green Living this morning!

Very cute! I think you could also glue the ribbon to the back of the paper, and then not have to worry about drilling and the knot showing? Not sure, but either way, I totally want to make some!

Molly, I did think about that and I think that would work with stronger glue (mine was just "regular" glue). Good idea!
