The kids rolled out their coffee dough and selected which cookie cutters they wanted to use from our assortment of cookie cutters. We have a giant cookie cutter set . These are great because they have cookie cutters for all of the major holidays, plus letter and number cookie cutters. All of the kids wanted to make an ornament with their initial and then they chose from snowmen, stars, Christmas trees, bells, stockings, and Gingerbread men.
Then, we added some festive ribbon to hang them and you're all set. We have painted these in the past, but I chose to leave them this year so the kids could see the neat texture of the coffee grains in their ornaments. They had a beautiful stone finish to them. You can use the toothpick to mark each child's initials and the year into the back of the ornament before baking or just write on them with a sharpie once they finish drying.
