Y’all– Cookie cutters are such a great thing to have around! Not only do they make cookies and other delicious food into precious, seasonal and occasion-themed shapes, but they can give you some pretty great 5-minute art for Spring!
I wanted something to hang above my stove, but I didn’t want to spend lots of money, or time on it! So, this was where I ended up, and I love it!
All you’ll need is a hole-punch, some black paint (or whatever color you prefer), your favorite cookie cutter (I used a flower shape) and some lightweight brown kraft paper card stock! Of course, you will also want a way to hang this gorgeous piece once you’re done, but that’s completely up to you! Personally, I used this hanger and some jute twine because I think it gives it a vintage feel, and makes it blend in with my decor better!
First things first, crumple up your paper and give it a worn-feel! Once again, this just makes it blend with my decor better, because I don’t always like things to look new and neat! Next, pour some of your paint onto a paper plate, and dip that cookie cutter!
You’ll want to make sure not to get an amount of paint excess on the cookie cutter, or else this could get messy, fast! If you do feel you got too much, just dab it off on a paper towel! After making sure you have just the right amount of paint, you will put your cutter all over the paper!
I grouped my flowers in some areas, and spread it out in others– but I honestly think there’s no right or wrong here! Plus, it will depend on the cookie cutter you choose, to determine what looks best to you! Once it’s dry, punch your holes in the top with the hole-punch, add your jute twine, or string (or even ribbon– the World’s yours, my friend) and it’s ready to hang!
And really, that’s it! Easy, peasy– and now you have some cute art for Spring, that took you no time at all!
