How to Make Fabric Christmas Ornaments
Make these festive cookie cutter fabric ornaments using just scissors and hot glue.
- 1 yard HGTV HOME fabric or fabric of choice (or 1/2 yard each of complementary fabrics)
- a variety of festive cookie cutters
- fabric trim
- hot glue gun and sticks
- twine or ribbon
Cut trim to size of cookie cutter parameter. Apply hot glue to cookie cutter edge, and attach one end of the trim (image 1). Wrap trim around cookie cutter, and apply hot glue every so often to adhere the trim (image 2).
Apply hot glue around edges of cookie cutter and press down on a piece of fabric that's facing up. Allow to dry.
Cut Excess Fabric
Cut excess fabric with sharp scissors as close to the cookie cutter as you can. Use a rotary cutter if necessary.
Add Finishing Touches
Cut a 4-inch piece of twine or ribbon. Apply a dab of hot glue to the top of the cookie cutter, and place both ends of twine into the glue (creating a loop). Embellish the fabric with scrapbook stickers and jewels, sequins or any other embellishment. Hang on your Christmas tree. Repeat steps with a variety of holiday-inspired cookie cutters.
