Bright Idea: Cookie Cutter Crafts

Have some old cookie cutters that you don't use anymore? Maybe you've seen some at a garage sale or in a discount bin? Here are a few great (non-cookie cutting) ways to put them to use for the holidays!

Use cookie cutters to form candles. Make them out of honeycomb wax sheets or use them to top a cake!

Give fudge to friends and neighbors using cookie cutters as molds!

 Tie old cookie cutters together with twine to make a garland.

Last but not least, you can use cookie cutters to make a wreath! Stick to one shape (like stars) to create a simple wreath, use a multitude of shapes and spray paint the wreath to be one uniform color, or leave the cookie cutters as is and add a fancy bow... like the green and red bow or the picnic pattern bow pictured above.


  1. Thanks for all these brilliant ideas.. We are on a tight budget, but at least these can still pretty up our home! I especially love the garland. And the candles. Guess it's time to head to our favorite cake supply to pick some new cookie cutters up!

  2. You should also try garage sales or the swap meet! You can find bags of them for really really cheap!

  3. These are fantastic ideas! I love them! Thanks so much for sharing!
