These gorgeous COOKIE CUTTER CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS are easy to make using our 3-Ingredient white clay dough recipe. A generous sprinkling of glitter makes them look just like sugared Christmas cookies.
I’m so excited to share our latest Christmas ornaments with you!
We’ve used our favourite 3-Ingredient White Clay Dough recipe to make a batch of “Christmas Cookie” ornaments for our Christmas tree.
If you’ve been following us for a while, you know how much we love using this clay dough to make seasonal ornaments here in my daycare.
We’ve used this dough to make Valentine’s ornaments and Fall ornaments, and the toddlers made these cookie cutter ornaments decorated with buttons and beads a few years ago at Christmas.
This time, I made the dough with the older kids in my daycare, and we used Christmas cookie cutters and glitter to make our ornaments look like sugar-coated Christmas cookies.
The kids had a wonderful time making these ornaments.
The dough was easy to make, and rolling it out and cutting out their shapes brought back memories of doing the same with play dough when they were little.
Glittering the ornaments was the highlight of the day of course. These kids love glitter.
If you’re not a fan of glitter yourself, don’t worry. When your ornaments have dried, you’ll give them a clear coat of varnish to hold all that beautiful glitter in place.
Aren’t they gorgeous?
I love the way the glitter sparkles in the sunlight during the day, and how it catches the lights of the Christmas tree at night.
