    Default Wired Star Ornament

    Although cookie cutters are best known for their work in the kitchen, these fun-shaped baking utensils can also play a role in decorating your family's Christmas tree.

    CRAFT MATERIALS:
    3-foot length of 18-gauge gold-colored craft wire
    Pencil
    Star-shaped cookie cutter
    Wire cutters
    20-to 24-gauge colored lightweight wire
    Ribbon

    Time needed: Under 1 Hour

    1. To make an ornament like the one here, wrap one end of a 3-foot length of 18-gauge gold-colored craft wire around a pencil to form a hanging loop. With the loop at the top of a star cookie cutter, press the wire twice around the perimeter of the cookie cutter to form a star shape, twisting it around the hanging loop and using wire cutters (a parent's job) to snip off any excess. Remove the cutter.

    2. Now your child can complete the ornament by wrapping the wire outline with lengths of 20-to 24-gauge colored lightweight wire, securing the ends in place by wrapping them around the cookie cutter outline.

    3. Finally, tie a hanging ribbon to the loop, and your ornament is ready for display.
