This time of year I really appreciate quick and easy projects. Doesn’t hurt when they are inexpensive either.
Every year we try to add a few new ornaments to the tree. Bonus points if they’re handmade.
This year I decided to keep it super simple with cookie cutter ornaments.
I found these adorable cookie cutters at World Market for 99 cents each. I grabbed three each of the bird, the star, the heart, and the scalloped circle. All they needed was a little string to become cute ornaments.
I pulled out my jar of pretty twine and got to work. I decided to double up the baker’s twine and use two different colors for each ornament. I cut equal lengths of each string. I looped the pairs of string and knotted the ends.
To create hangers for the ornaments, I wrapped the string loops around the ornament and pulled the knotted end through the loop.
I cinched the loop down by pulling on the knot. That is all it takes! This was so easy, my 5 year old helped.
We scattered these all over the tree. I love how subtle these ornaments are.
