I'm probably one of the least crafty people I know. And one of the most thrifty. Today I'm going to show you the extent of my thrifty-craftiness with two copy-cat Pinterest crafts that I did for the upcoming holidays.
First up is a "wreath" type thing made out of cookie cutters. This is great because a) I need a wreath or SOMETHING to hang on our front door. It's the only outdoor decorating we do. And b) it was inexpensive. $3 to be exact.
Secondly, we have a Christmas cardholder so that my bulletin board and fridge don't get all cluttered (you know how I hate clutter) with cards. This year our first Christmas card came around November 7th. Over-achievers. So from whenever the first Christmas card arrives until after New Years, this cardholder will be hanging in my kitchen to prevent clutter.
What you need: $6.00 and about 10 minutes. And a dollar store near your house.
- A hanging Christmas-y decoration, something more wide than tall and narrow to give you optimal ribbon hanging room
- 2 rolls of coordinating ribbon
- 2 packs of plastic cookie cutters (or about 10 cookie cutters)
- 1 pack of clothespins
- Hot glue gun
- Command Strips or something to hang your masterpieces with
Cookie Cutter "Wreath"

Cut several strips of ribbon that will be evenly spaced along the bottom of the hanging Christmas decoration you have picked out. Use hot glue gun to attach ribbon to the decoration. Let cool for a minute. Hang and use clothespins to attach card to holder. Bonus points if you have/make decorated clothespins.
