Ornaments and Frames

Christmas cookie cutters can be used for so much more than a batch of cookies, though! Make homemade ornaments that will last all season, and give your a decor a real handmade touch. With just a few inexpensive pantry ingredients and crafting supplies, you can create and decorate beautiful Salt-Dough Ornaments to adorn your tree. If you have older ornaments you no longer use, or a handful of inexpensive ones, use them to create adorable cookie-cutter photo frames.


Nifty Napkin Rings

Create beautiful seasonal napkin rings by rolling up linen napkins and folding them through your Christmas cookie cutters. Give each person at your table a different shape to make your tablescape feel really unique.


Cookie-Cutter Cards

You can also use your Christmas cookie cutters for more than just dough. With craft items you already have lying around the house, you can create cute holiday greeting cards and gift tags. Simply trace around the outside of your favorite shapes!

Cookie-Cutter Candles
