I’ve been meaning to do this project for a year now, but never got around to it last Christmas. Today’s DIY GIFT GUIDE post is making cookie cutter Christmas ornaments out of old tin ornaments. The ornament I used was my grandma’s and it is kind of crappy (sorry, Grandma… but it is true.). The dough gets stuck in the nooks and crannies and it just isn’t pretty. My mom has a bunch more, so last year I turned them into a holiday display for her. She loves it 🙂
Anyway, these old ornaments are really easy to work with because the metal is so thin. So if you have any lying around the house and don’t want to use them for sugar cookies this year, here’s another option!
- Tin Cookie Cutter
- Take your tin cookie cutter and puncture the top with a nail. (I did this without a hammer, but if your fingers aren’t as tough you could use a hammer. Also, you have wimpy fingers hehe)
- Remove the nail and put thin ribbon through your newly created hole.
- Add red ribbon so your ornament pops off of your tree.
- Embellish your ribbon with a gold button for extra festiveness.
- Hang on your tree!
Check back tomorrow for another gift idea!
