COOKIE CUTTERS: NOT JUST FOR COOKIES ANYMORE! POST #2: DOUGH ORNAMENTS


I made these sometimes in the late 1980’s. They last a long time too! Sand the back of the ornamment or “paint” it with cinnamon oil to renew the scent.
I made this ornament in 1990 and you can see it still looks great! Store these carefully and they will last a long, long time!

This continues my series of posts on crafty uses for cookie cutters. Today’s post is about making dough ornaments using non-edible dough. I have not tried all the dough recipes yet but will post my tried & true recipes and tips for salt and cinnamon dough separate posts.

I have not tried the applesauce dough ornaments yet but have bought some – and do they smell great! Here is a url of a site I found with 2 recipies plua a gingebread play dough recipe!

I also haven’t tried bread dough either – but this recipie looks super, super easy!

I’d love to hear your use and see photos of your projects with cookie cutters. Send photos to me at buggal1989@yahoo.com

Christmas Ornament, “Cut-Out Cookie”; Applesauce, Cinnamon, Salt, or Bread Dough:  Add some “cookies” to your “Cookie Cutter Christmas Tree”, wreath or garland by using cutters (mini are cute) to cut out some “homemade cookies” out of dough . 

  1. Mix up dough per instructions, roll the dough and then cut out with cookie cutters.
  2. Poke a small hole through the top of each one using a drinking straw and then bake or allow to air dry thoroughly per instructions (usually several days).
  3. Then decorate your ornaments with craft paints, rick rack, ribbons, sequins, small beads, etc.
  4. Let glue or paint dry overnight and then spray or paint with a multi-purpose sealer (do not seal applesauce or cinnamon ornaments).  Lightly sprinkle with glitter before sealer dries or use glitter spray if desired..  Allow to dry overnight and then string ribbon, jute, cord or raffia through the hole and hang to complete your “Cookie Cutter Christmas Tree, Wreath or Garland”!
