Vintage Cookie Press Disk Ornaments

I’m having so much fun this Christmas season repurposing and upcycling things from my stashes into ornaments for my living room tree.

So far I’ve made tart tin ornaments and angel ornaments from cream horn molds

For one of those angels I used two vintage cookie press disks for wings, and today I’m using some vintage disks from a different cookie press set for some quick and easy cookie press disk ornaments.

I found this cookie press set recently and the disks are quite large.

The dark pink glass chandelier crystals have been in my stash for quite some time just waiting to be used in a project.

I picked out 4 disks that I thought looked kinda Christmas related.. a tree, a cross, a poinsettia flower, and what I’m calling a snowflake.

The chandy crystals easily slipped onto the disks… no drilling holes required.

Funny how the chandy crystals seem to change colour in different light. Here they look kinda purple, but they are actually quite pink.

Then I attached some narrow pink ribbon for the hangers. Easy peasy!

And here they are… hanging on my tree.

I love the pink crystals, which are much brighter in person than they are in the pics.

These were so easy to put together, and after Christmas they can be taken apart and used in future projects… or maybe even for baking cookies.

What a concept! lol.

Not by me mind you.  I’m a cookie eater, but so not a cookie baker. 🙂

Don’t forget to pin it!

    How lovely and what wonderful ornaments they make. Only problem with me is that I use my disks in making spritz cookies.
    Also like your angel ornaments using the horn molds. So very cute

    1. Thanks Colleen! Because the disks aren’t altered in any way these ornaments can be whipped up and hung on the tree after the yummy baking is done for the season.

  2. So cute! I’ve seen these around the thrift shops…..next time I’ll pick some up! Have you shown us your tree yet and I forgot? Or are we still waiting?? Dona

    1. Thanks Dona! No, you haven’t missed the tree. I’ll be sharing it next week. Still trying to get some decent pics. 🙂

  3. Wow, love those! So simple to put together & love those crystals! Never seen pink ones either! I would love to see your tree Tuula, with all the handmade ornaments!

    1. Thanks Florence! I’ll be showing the tree next week. 🙂

    1. Thank you so much Jeanie, and Merry Christmas to you too. 🙂

  5. How cute are these? I have sold so many of those cookie presses and next time I find one I will have to keep it to make these. Perfect little gifts and gift tags. My mind does not work like yours when I see something like this, but I am learning. I am a really good copier!!

    1. Thanks AnnMarie! I never thought of using them for gift tags. I love that idea!

  6. You are so clever!! Love to watch what you do ♥ Merry Christmas!

    1. Thanks Tania! Sometimes the simplest projects are my favourites, and I love how these look on the tree.

    These are great Tuula, so pretty and creative. I always have those cookie baking intentions that don’t seem to pan out. Now I know what to do with my discs! 🙂

    1. Thanks so much Pam! I hope you love yours on your tree as much as I love mine.

    1. Thanks very much Janice!

  8. Great idea. I used just the plain disc last year on my junk Christmas Tree. The addition of the crystals is just perfect. Don’t be surprised if I copy this idea.

    1. Thanks Sharon! I’ve been waiting for the prefect way to use some of my pink chandy crystals, and for me this was it.

  9. Tuula, these are just fabulous! Thank you for sharing @Vintage Charm! Pinned and tweeted!

    1. Thanks Cecilia! I appreciate the pin and tweet. 🙂

  10. The disc that you are calling a pointsettia is a wreathe. My mother used to make cream cheese cookies using that particular disc; I can taste the buttery goodness just remembering it. We were allowed to help with the sprinkles and colored sugars. And, of course, we were cheap labor when it came to the by hand mixing! I loved the old “by hand” cooky press rather than my electric one caz I could control the dough easier. Thanx for bringing back these great memories! I would love to have space for a “kitcheny” tree with ornaments like yours!

    1. Thanks for the tip on the wreath disc Kathy. Cream cheese cookies sound amazing! I had my disc ornaments on my regular tree, but I’d love to have a kitcheny tree too. 🙂
