Christmas Cookie Cutter Wreath

I saw this idea for a cookie cutter wreath on Better Homes and Garden.  Since I'm a the president of the cookie cutter lover club, it seemed like something I needed to tackle.  Wilton has a big set of Christmas cutters you can purchase, but I also found this tub on sale at Hobby Lobby.  I grabbed the cookie cutters, ribbon, paperclips, and gorilla glue. 
I laid out the cookie cutters, and clipped them together with paperclips (to hold them in place), and then added gorilla glue. 
After my wreath dried, I peeled off any gorilla glue that showed itself, added some hot glues to a few week areas (the smaller cookie cutters), and added a ribbon.  It doesn't get a lot easier.

Being a cookie lover and baker, your wreath is right up my alley. I might just have to try putting one together sometime.

Super fab, like always, I have a bunch of inherited cookie cutters taking up space in my basement. This would be a fun way to use them up! Some are kind dinged up and dented so they don't really work for baking but retain their basic shape.

Very, very sweet! I'll have to hit IKEA and pick up some cookie cutters and give this a go, it's a fantastic idea and a great starting point!
Thank you so much for sharing!

Oh, that's super cute! Now I'm kind of kicking myself for giving a whole bag of cookie cutters to my sister, just so she could make cookies! Although, hmm... eating cookies or crafting... that's a tough one!

I love it! I've seen cookie cutters on wreaths, but never a wreath made from cookie cutters! That would look so great in a kitchen. I featured you today on my wreath round up post. :)

Cute craft! I always use cookie cutters as ornaments on my rosemary tree in the kitchen each Christmas. I need to bookmark this post for next year. A couple of cookie cutter wreaths would look great on the french doors in my kitchen.
