Ten second decorations...

Cookie cutter + Bakers twine = instant tree decoration




If it can have a ribbon tied to it, it's in danger of being pressed into service. 
I might have a mini kitchen tree next year - purely with cookie cutters and edible themed items.

  3. No decs at our house yet, not even a wreath on the front door!
    The tree has been "constructed" but that's it...it's time to get my act together! I like your cookie cutter decs Lakota, a little tree decorated with them would make a lovely present for a baking mad friend or rellie x

  6. cookie cutters as decoration is a fabulous idea, saves a lot of space! Hmmm...maybe I should hang anything I can find in the kitchen, like forks and spoons too

  14. I like! I've done a cookie cutters thing too, but not on strings. It's on my blog for the first Childlike Christmas post if you want to see it - Dec 1st, maybe?

  19. Gosh, those are even better than my wisteria wreath. The story...I tripped over all the cuttings of my wisteria, banging my head on the pergola. Crazy with wisteria hatred I scrunched the cuttings up in a red rage and miraculously they turned into a wreath. Who would have thunk it?

  20. What a wonderful idea! It looks so lovely :)

  21. I'm too late! I didnt see this in time. I just sent off my swap and didn't include a xmas ornament. I know, Im a shame to the idea but I did include an xtra charity shopped item. So sue me. I was going to scrabble tile it but I couldn't find any scrabble games for sale. Do you have to use them from games or do they sell them separate? Gheesh Im getting annoying.
