Ornament Popcorn Balls
These gooey-sweet treats are great for dressing up the tree with a little more than the classic popcorn string. And they’re yummier and fun for the family, too.
Christmas Cookie Ornaments
Make these goodies for the tree ahead of time and store them plain in your freezer. Come Christmas, fix homemade frosting and decorate. Then tie on ribbons and hang them on your tree. You can also eat these treats! If you do, start them from scratch at holiday time and keep in an airtight container.
These lightly spiced festive gingerbread fellows are great to munch on. And if I punch a hole in the cutout shapes before baking, I can use the sturdy cookies as tree ornaments, too.
Homemade Candy Canes
Try making these candy canes during the holidays. They will look extra special hanging on your Christmas tree.
Cinnamon Snowflake Ornaments
Fill your home with the scent of Christmas with these lovely non-edible spice ornaments. Thread a narrow ribbon through them and hang them on your tree, in the window, from the chandelier, or as a swag by the fireplace.
Stained Glass Cookie Ornaments
Bring back sweet memories of the magic of Christmases past with these fancy jewel-colored cookie ornaments. You can make they in a variety of seasonal shapes and sizes, and hang them on a tree, in the window, or on an ornament stand.
Decorative Ginger Cookies
Add a festive ribbon to gingerbread boys to hang on your Christmas tree or display in other creative ways. Use different shapes of holiday cookie cutters for variety, if you wish.
Snowflake and Icicle Cookies
Bring some of winter’s wonder indoors with shaped butter cookies that get their sparkle from edible glitter. These cookie ornaments are great favors for your trim-a-tree party guests.
What a welcome gift these fun frosted ornaments will make. But beware…the ginger-flavored cookies are so appetizing, they might never make it to the tree!
To make these treats, I simply cut tortillas into flake shapes, bake and dust them with sugar. Snow never tasted so good! You can serve them on a plate or tie on strings and hang them as ornaments.
