Are you looking for ways to display cookie cutters? Here I will share this cookie cutter craft that I made to compliment my Farmhouse Christmas decor.
I recently came across these old cookie cutters at a garage sale for pennies. I thought they would be really cute to display during the Christmas season so I set out to figure out what kind of cookie cutter craft I could make.
I spent a bit of time looking up how do you display Christmas cookie cutters online, but was finding mostly ornaments. There are some really cute ideas out there, but I knew I didn’t want them for the tree.
So I came up with a way to display them upright and here I will show you exactly how.

Christmas Tree Cookie Cutter Craft
Step 1: Find Cookie Cutters
I was able to find these old ones at a garage sale recently. I love the fact that they are all different.
You can also keep an eye out for them at the thrift shop, or use what you already have.
If you don’t want to hunt for them, this set from Amazon would work perfectly as well.
Step 2: Paint / Stain Base
I used an old piece of scrap wood I had laying around for the base.
Since I wanted it to be white, I simply used a few coats of spray paint which went quickly.
Step 3: Drill Holes For Dowel
For this step, find a drill bit that is the same size as the dowel you are using.
Drill a hole in the base wood about 3/4 of the way through the wood.
Then, dry-fit the dowel and make sure it fits inside nicely.
Step 4: Cut Dowels To Size
I played around with the sizes for the dowels.
I wanted varying heights for the trees so I ended up with the shortest one in the middle and the outer ones a bit taller.
Step 5 – Attach Cookie Cutter To Dowel
This step gave me some issues for sure!
I attempted several ways to connect the cookie cutter to the dowel with no success.
Finally, I figured it out. I drilled a small hole through the base of the cookie cutter. Next, I used a flat tack to connect it to the dowel.
Then, I added a small bit of hot glue to secure it in place.
Step 6 – Connect Trees To Base
Once I had the trees connected to the dowels, it was time to add them to the base.
For this step, I simply added a small dab of hot glue in the hole, and then set the dowels inside. That’s it!
STEP 7 – DECORATE & ENJOY!
At this point, you can add any embellishments you would like. I wanted to keep it simple so I added a bit of greenery to the base and called it a day.
Thanks for stopping by! I look forward to more cookie cutter crafts in the future. And don’t miss this DIY milk & cookies tray for Santa.
