Today I am sharing my very first Christmas project of 2014. I won't be completely decking our halls for a couple of more weeks, but I have been having fun with a few projects that I will share early in case you might want to make one for yourself!
This was so easy! Cutting and glueing was all it took and I love the mix of patterns and colors that the scrapbook paper provides. To start, you will need a mix of cookie cutters in a variety of sizes (I bought mine on Amazon), scrapbook paper, glue and a ribbon. First, lay out the cookie cutters in a wreath pattern. This was kind of like a puzzle trying to figure out which way they fit best. Mine turned out a bit oval, although I was going for round. I am definitely not a perfectionist!
Then, trace, cut and glue the scrapbook paper onto the cookie cutters. I didn't use scrapbook paper on every cookie cutter because I liked the mix, but you certainly could add it to all of them..or none of them. I used E6000 glue but I could have used my glue gun. And I didn't always do a perfect job of tracing. I just trimmed off the excess paper after the glue dried.
Finally, glue the whole wreath together using a hot glue gun. Work your way around the wreath glueing everywhere the cookie cutters meet.
Add a decorative ribbon and you are done!
Baking Christmas cookies is such an important part of our holiday season so I am planning on hanging this wreath over the sink in our kitchen.
Have you started any Christmas crafts yet?
