Cookie Cutter Mobile n’ Ornament

I recently went to a neighbors garage sale. I spied these all these Christmas themed cookie cutters…10 for a dollar…wow! I really don’t need anymore…but I couldn’t pass these up, I could do something with them..

Now I had found this also at a garage sale months ago. I still have no idea what it is, or what it’s used for.But,  I liked the shape, so I got it for a dime. Actually, that fits how I think at garage sales. I look at the shape, and see if something clicks in my head. My love for architecture probably has nothing to do with it, but I always go for the shape.

Do you know what it is? I’ll just call it round piece, so I don’t confuse anyone. Well, don’t think you can’t do this project. Use a embroidery  hoop. Whatever size you want. If you only have 4 cookie cutters…get a smaller hoop. You can even use a wire coat hanger, as long as it’s not flimsy.

So back to my idea….I  took out all the cookie cutters and put ribbon around them with hot glue. I bought ALL these ribbons at the dollar store. Some shiny, and the others with little rhinestones creating a ribbon…

When I was finished with them all with the ribbon around them…

they are going to sparkle and look so pretty.

I took some string, you can use ribbon if you want, and cut 4 equal lengths. I attached them around the round piece in 4 places. Be sure before you tie a knot on top, that it’s hanging evenly. If not adjust the strings/ribbon.

After I was done with that..  I had this mono filament illusion cord (that’s a mouthful) left from my baby mobile  projects…. https://kelleysdiy.com/2016/09/28/baby-shower-mobile/ and https://kelleysdiy.com/2016/10/03/mariahs-butterfly-mobile/  You can get tutorials from there, using ribbon instead of the strings.

I tied one side of the cord to the center of the  figure, and then the other end to the round piece.Hang each one the length you want. I hung mine in random lengths. I put the largest, which was an angel, in the center. Then I worked around the mobile, hanging the rest.

Those cabinets in the background are getting painted in Jan….with the Rustoleum Cabinet Kit…so stay tuned for that

Isn’t this a cute gift for that baker you know??? Or for yourself if you love to bake. Perhaps if a gift…you can coordinate their kitchen colors with this idea. This is just a really adorable mobile.

Now I had a couple more repeats of shapes so I made ornaments for the tree. I started from the bottom, I worked up one side, putting little dabs of hot glue in the creases of the cutter. When I got to the top, I made a loop for hanging it, and then back down the other side so ends meet.

This is so pretty…and when the lights shine on it, the sparkle is so pretty. I think I will put one of these on each of my bakery gifts.

I was making these outside….I then looked over at my fig tree…not ready yet…but look at the beautiful rose in all her glory!
