What better craft for a baker than one that showcases her love of baking? If you enjoy making (or eating!) sugar cookies, then this cookie cutter wreath is for you!
Each time I make a cookie cutter wreath I find a way to make it more structurally sound. The other techniques still work, but this technique is my favorite so far. You can find my other two cookie cutter wreaths here and here.
What You’ll Need:
The first step is arranging the cookie cutters in a wreath formation. Take a picture of the arrangement you like best so you can easily recreate it.
Next, use your cutting pliers to cut 8-inch pieces of wire. You’ll want four 8-inch pieces when connecting one pair of cookie cutters. For the Valentine’s Day wreath I used two pieces. That works, too, but the wreath loses its shape a bit when hung up.
Use the needle nose pliers to fold the end of each wire piece. (This is because the ends of the wire are sharp and you don’t want to cut yourself.)
Now you’re ready to form the wreath! Wrap one piece of wire around the sides of two cookie cutters to connect them. Then wrap a second piece on top of the first piece. You can either tuck the ends under a piece of wire and/or use the needle nose pliers to flatten and tighten it.
Make the cutters more secure by wrapping another two pieces of wire in a separate spot.
Once you’ve finished attaching the cookie cutters you’re almost done! If you don’t want to add flowers, loop the twine wire or ribbon around the top of the wreath and tie a bow or knot, leaving a large enough loop to hang.
I have extra tulips from my Hello Spring sign, so I decided to add a few to the wreath.
First, cut 4-inch pieces of wire, one for each flower used. Fold the wire piece in half over your finger and thread the ends through the center of the bulb. The easiest way to do this is by removing the bulb, threading the wire through the bulb and then putting it back in the flower. Wait and fold the ends of the wire after threading it.
