As you saw from yesterday’s post we have our tree. In fact, I sit here in my office with a view to the lit tree enjoying the scent. Glorious.
A couple of months ago, I began putting some thought into what I would adorn the tree with: German glass glitter, mercury glass and a pink flocked tree was not practical, nor husband friendly. Then, I remembered a small collection of four vintage tin cookie cutters that I purchased at a flea market over the summer. I had visions of cookie cutter ornaments hanging from my tree and so, with the help of my Mom and cousin Di, I collected a few more charming treasures.
The thought did not cross my mind till I was hanging them on my tree how practical these really are. Completely kid friendly. I am in love and excited to watch the Christmas cookie cutter ornament collection grow.
You can find cookie cutters at thrift stores, garage sales, etsy, and flea markets. Expect to pay between a quarter to five dollars (more rare pieces). Use a small drill bit to drill a hole, but be sure it is big enough for twine or ribbon to pull through.
Besides hanging from my tree and for making cookies, they also make a sweet wrapping present embellishment.
I have my eye out for a few copper cookie cutters. I have a thing for copper right now. Just look at this gorgeous color for a stand-up mixer.
Happy Decorating friends!
