DIY Cookie Cutter Ornaments
For this year's festive season I've decided to keep things simple here at e-elise etc sharing DIY projects that are both easy to recreate and perfect for those on a budget. I'm kicking off the series today with a cute project inspired by Martha Stewart's 2011 book Crafts For All Occasions. These unique ornaments are a great project for those trying to be thrifty this season - for this tutorial I picked up a pack of five festive cookie cutters from my local Poundland store and used items from my crafting stash to complete the project!
To make your own you will need: metal cookie cutters, scrapbooking papers, scissors, a pen, ribbon, wooden beads, craft glue/Mod Podge, a needle with a large eye
1. Place your chosen cookie cutter on top of your scrapbooking paper, draw around the outside edge & then carefully cut out the shape
2. Draw a thin line of craft glue around the edge of the shape on the front side of the paper cutout then carefully place the cookie cutter on top and set aside to dry
3. Take a your needle threaded up with a length of ribbon and push it through between the edge of the cutter and the paper at the point you wish to be the top
4. Tie a knot then thread on a bead for a more decorative finish. Leave a small length of ribbon then tie one last knot to create the hanging loop and trim off any excess.
5. If necessary re-glue around the top area of the ornament and you're done!
As always I'd love to hear from you if you try out this or any other project from my DIY Archives - if you liked this project don't forget to Pin it!
