Cookie-Cut­ter Decor

Country Sampler - - Thrifty Thinking -

Gather your chil­dren or grand­kids around the kitchen ta­ble to craft an in­stant or­na­ment as­sort­ment by us­ing Christ­mas cookie cut­ters as a guide for snip­ping shapes from co­or­di­nat­ing pat­terns of scrap­book pa­per. Glue glittery pipe clean­ers around the cut edges and em­bel­lish the or­na­ments with small pinecones, all­spice berries, cin­na­mon sticks and star anise. Punch a small hole through the top of each or­na­ment and thread with a piece of twine for hang­ing. In ad­di­tion to dec­o­rat­ing a tree, these sweet and sim­ple shapes make great gar­lands, gift tags or ta­ble fa­vors.
