Make this year’s tree-decorating festivities even more special with these homemade ornaments. The best part? You can enjoy snacking on extra cookies while you work!

Tree-Trimming Cookies

Gingerbread Man Garland

Elevate the standard cranberry-and-popcorn garland with these festive gingerbread men. A red ribbon threaded between the cookies looks striking against a deep green tree.

Glazed Sugar Cookie Star Garland

Peppermint Ornaments

These delicate ornaments can be made in any shape you’d like–simply place three to four unwrapped peppermint candies inside a greased cookie cutter in your favorite holiday shape. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees until melted. Let cool, then carefully push the finished ornament out of the cookie cutter.
