Here's how to make Christmas Cookie Ornaments:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas Cookie Ornaments, gather all supplies. Plastic cookie cutters from Dollar Tree are perfect for creating more than just cookies. You can also use felt, or craft paper to create no-bake cookies with the kiddos.
Push the cookie cutters into craft foam, so they leave an indentation. Use the outline of the indentation as a guide for cutting out the cookies. You can also trace the cookie cutter shapes onto the craft foam with a pencil.
Here is a detail of the indentation. This tan color of craft foam is the perfect base for a sugar cookie, don't you think?
Cut out the cookie shapes from craft foam with scissors. Let the kiddos help you with this step to work on fine motor skills and coordination.
Apply white dimensional fabric paint to the “cookies” to replicate the icing. Place each of the cookies on a plain piece of paper, and sprinkle with clear glitter. Gather paper and return excess glitter to the container. Set aside to dry for several hours or overnight.
Once the white icing is dry, apply green dimensional fabric paint to the “cookies” as an accent color of icing. Place each of the cookies on a plain piece of paper, and sprinkle with clear glitter. Gather paper and return excess glitter to the container. Set aside to dry for several hours or overnight.
Allow each color of icing to dry before applying the next color. Apply red dimensional fabric paint to the “cookies” as an accent color of icing. Place each of the cookies on a plain piece of paper, and sprinkle with clear glitter. Gather paper and return excess glitter to the container. Set aside to dry for several hours or overnight.
While still wet, insert silver pony beads into dimensional fabric paint to mimic cookie decorations called dragees. Use what you have on hand to create some sparkle and shine.
Measure and cut an eight-inch length of silver ribbon and attach it to the back of each cookie ornament with the glue gun and glue sticks. When waiting for hot glue to dry, use the tips of your scissors to make sure that the ribbon has a good bond to the glue without burning your fingers.
