My kids love to make our house look festive with holiday decorations. We used cookie cutters to press or trace onto foam and, in minutes, we had some fun holiday decorations adorning our front door.

How We Did It

Easy Cookie Cutter Christmas Decorations
We gathered our supplies first. We chose red and green foam for traditional Christmas colors, plus yellow for our stars and brown for our gingerbread people.

You can either press the cookie cutter onto the foam to make an imprint or trace it with a blunt object, like a chopstick.

The impression will make a slight white outline of your cookie cutter. Next we cut out the shapes.

My kids chose to decorate some of the shapes, others we left plain. Here is my 3 year old, adding button ornaments with a glue stick to a Christmas tree.

We added some glitter glue to a few of the ornaments, as well as googly eyes on our gingerbread people.

We let the glue dry for a few minutes.

A little tape affixed these cute decorations to the inside of the glass on our storm door.

They look pretty from the inside, too. I've left these supplies out so my kids can make more anytime they want. They are so easy that my 6 and 8 year olds can do the entire project themselves and my 3 year old only needs help with the cutting step. Before long these will be adorning all of our windows, too.
