Christmas Cookie Cutter Garland

Materials:

  • Christmas cookie cutters
  • Ribbon, cord, or raffia
  • Beads and other desired embellishments
     

Instructions:

  1. To make a garland first measure out the ribbon, cord, yarn, or raffia length to fit the purpose ot the garland (for the Christmas tree, banister, etc.). Consider using a real or artificial; plain or lighted greenery garland, or a “cranberry” bead or apple garland.
     
  2. The next step is to attach the cookie cutters evenly spaced into the garland.
     
  3. Place them about every 4 to 6 inches and tie them on with raffia or string them on the stringing cord, alternating with red and green wooden beads (add mini wooden hearts, stars, or thread spools if desired). Knot the stringing material between the cutters and beads to hold them in place. Leave lots of bare stringing material and use the garland to display Christmas cards, if desired.
     
  4. Tie on simple bows between the cookies/cutters and beads for added interest. For a primitive or country feel, use 4 to 6-inch fabric strips torn from a fabric that fits with the color scheme for your tree or décor. Unravel the edges of the fabric to “frazzle” the ribbon. Then tie the fabric pieces to the garland with a loose double knot or tie shoestring bows with longer pieces.
     
  5. Attach a mini grapevine wreath to each end of the garland for an attractive way to hang the garland on a wall.
     
  6. This Christmas garland is made with cookie cutters (can be backed with scrapbook paper – see the middle cutter), beads, wooden spools and distressed fabric bows.
     
  7. This greenry garland is set off with cookie cutters. As you can see the green cutters do not show up as well and the scrapbook paper backed ornaments. Tie the cutters on with ribbon or torn fabric strips. Adding some red berry clusters would really set off this garland. Consider using a lighted garland.

  8. Add cutters and bows to a red bead garland. This would be great on a tree. Again, remember the green cutters will not show up as well on a green tree. Copper cutters would look very nice!

I really like this idea. Adding a string of lights is a perfect touch in my opinion. This would be a cute garland for the Fourth of July also. The cookie cutters could be attached with a simple hook so they can be removed if I want to use them for baking. A cutter could be hung up in a protective cellophane wrapper to keep it from getting too dusty. A simple hot water wash will prepare it for a baking session. Dual purpose.

This is a very inexpensive and cute idea. Why not take it one step further and wind a string of tiny battery operated lights into it? Or small electric ones on a timer to come on and shut off? My kitchen is going to look like Mrs. Claus's bakery this holiday season thanks to you!

Why won't this site allow me to copy and paste to share this ornament with my friends?
