In this post: Make these simple cookie cutter Christmas ornaments in less than 10 minutes. Give them to your favorite baker or hang them on a kitchen tree!

🎵It’s the most wonderful time of the year. 🎵It’s no secret I adore the Christmas Holidays. But I fully acknowledge that it can also be a crazy time of year – decorating, shopping, hosting. All while trying to remember the real reason for the season. Here are some very simple cookie-cutter Christmas ornaments that you can make with the kids on a cold winter’s day. Then you can hang them in the kitchen or wrap them up and give them with Christmas cookies to friends and neighbors.

1. For each ornament, thread a 4″ length of baker’s twine through one jingle bell. Tie twine at top of one cookie cutter. Use a little hot glue to hold it in place (metal ornaments are a little slippery!).

2. Then create a loop for hanging by tying a knot again with excess twine.

3. Repeat for as many cookie cutter ornaments as you’d like.

Hang and enjoy!
