This week I’m sharing an easy Christmas tree ornament.  This not only makes a wonderful ornament, it could also be an inexpensive gift idea or perhaps used as a gift topper.Do you have ribbon left over from last Christmas, (or the Christmas before) like I do?  This is a cute way to use up some of that leftover ribbon.

Supplies Used:

Cookie Cutters
Ribbon
Scissors
Glue Gun

Choose a ribbon and start wrapping it tightly round a cookie cutter.  Secure with a dab of hot melt glue at the end.

Aren’t these cute?  They are so easy to make too.

I recommend using soft ribbon without the inserted wire.

The size of the cookie cutter will determine how much ribbon you need.  For the Large star I used  about 6-/12 feet of ribbon.

If the ribbon you have is too short to wrap the entire cookie cutter, just cover the outside or the inside edge with ribbon.

It may be July, but these adorable ornaments belong on a tree.  Aww, look how cute they are hanging in my apple tree.   It’s beginning to feel (a little) like Christmas!

    Now I know exactly what to do with those older cookie cutters that are just not good enough to use for cookie making anymore. Thanks for the great idea.

    What a cute idea and perfect use for the overflow cookies cutters. I often run into drawers stuffed with these, and this would be a great way to repurpose them!

    This is such a clever idea using ribbon to cover cookie cutters! Love, love, love them! And as a designer for Bowdabra, I would, of course, add bows to the top of each one! I might have to steal this idea, Laurie!
