Cookie Cutter Garland & Mercury Glass

I am in love with mercury glass...  and Christmas cookie cutters, too!

I found loads of ideas for decorating with cookie cutters and settled on a garland for over my kitchen sink.   All it took was a $5 box of Christmas cookie cutters (I got mine at Real Canadian Superstore) and a ball of $1.50 twine from the Dollar Store.  Oh and I also used a tiny bit of holly twine that I also bought at Superstore.












I also picked up another box of mercury glass ornaments and decked the halls with a few more of these super pretty ornaments!


Only 12 days til Christmas!  Pop over for tea if you're in the neighbourhood!


Cheerio!

  12. I love the cookie cutter garland. Cute and super easy! I bought the same round PC cheeseboard (although mine is not nearly so nicely displayed). I have had my eye on the mercury glass ornaments too, but because I am cheap, I am waiting for them to go on sale.

  15. The only thing I love more than your cookie cutter garland in your Canadian speak - that familiar twang of words/stores I know in Sask like Superstore and Dollar Store (not Tree) and prices in Cdn dollars so I don't have to determine the math of $5 US = (jk) about $19.99 Cdn + $40 shipping cuz it isn't available in Canada - arriving in 6-8 wks you know that familiar misery ;) lol! Merry Christmas eh! ;)
