It's Day 1 and we are sharing DIY Wreath Ideas!

I have some standard Christmas wreaths... the typical evergreen wreath, a red ribbon wreath, a jingle bell wreath, the kinds you see all over. So I wanted to make a wreath that is a little more out of the ordinary, not something you see every day, and certainly not something you can buy in a store!

I created a fun wreath from a bag of cookie cutters I found at the thrift store!

Supplies Needed

As I mentioned I found a bag of cookie cutters at one of my local thrift shops.

To make your own cookie cutter wreath, you'll want to lay out your design and get the cookie cutters positioned where you want them first.

Then use the E6000 glue and put some glue everywhere that the cookie cutters touch. I would definitely recommend using a Teflon craft mat (see the supplies list) because the glue will drip down a little as it is drying and you'll end up with your cookie cutters stuck to whatever you have them lying on... but they won't stick to the Teflon mat!

Once the wreath is completely dry then you can spray it with the color of your choice (or leave it natural)! You can see that I added one cookie cutter that is a bit different than the others, it's a solid moon shaped cutter that I had in my stash.

Trace around a few of the cookie cutters and cut these out of various Christmas scrapbook papers.

Put a line of glue around the edge.

Then position them under the matching cookie cutter and press it down into the glue. Put some books on top and allow them to dry.

I chose to add red glitter to the solid moon cookie cutter for some added interest.


Add a ribbon to hang the wreath and a ribbon bow, I put mine on the side where my wreath was a little lopsided to even it out.

I was a little worried how this would turn out at first but I really like it!

  1. Well… I love this so much! I just happen to have the same set of cookie cutters that I bought when I first got married. That was 45 years ago…lol! I don’t use them any longer because I’ve gotten many more since then and they kind of got put on the back burner and were never brought back to life again. I see an absolute wonderful use for them now because I just didn’t have the heart to get rid of them. I’m glad I didn’t! What a gorgeous little wreath you’ve made! I think if I remember correctly, I even have the moon!

    1. Aww, I'm so glad you like it! I'd love to see yours when you get it complete!
