Cookie cutter ornaments originally appeared on the Resin Crafts Blog. These ornaments required a bit of patience as I poured 3 separate layers of resin in each one. But they are really pretty, so I think it’s worth it!

supplies for resin ornaments

Here are the supplies you’ll need to make these resin ornaments:


Cover a hard, flat surface with clear contact paper (I used a clipboard.) Spray the contact paper with mold release spray and dry completely.

Set the metal cookie cutters on the contact paper and create a seal around the bottom with hot glue to keep the resin from seeping out.

Wear gloves and eye protection. Cover your work surface to protect from spills, then mix resin according to package instructions.

Using equal parts resin and hardener, stir for 2 minutes in one cup. Pour into a clean cup and stir for an additional minute.

mix easy cast resin

Pour about 1/4 inch of resin into each ornament.

After a couple of minutes, bubbles will rise to the top, mostly collecting at the sides.

Exhale or pass a heat gun over the surface to pop the bubbles.

Let cure for 24 hours. Remove the ornaments from the contact paper and peel away the hot glue. Carefully use a blade if needed.

Mix more resin and pour another 1/4 inch. Color if desired with transparent or opaque dyes. I used one drop of opaque white here.

Let this layer cure for 6-7 hours. Decorate with different types of sprinkles. Since the resin will be a bit tacky, it will hold these sprinkles in place.

Use tweezers if needed to make sure you don’t touch the resin with your fingers.

Let cure at least two more hours and finish with a top layer of resin – just enough to cover all the sprinkles.

(A note about the red hots. They seemed to pass the tiniest bit of color to the white dye, so if I were doing this again, I would seal the red hots with Resin Spray Finish first.)

fill ornaments with resin

Wrap wire or tie string around the tops of the ornaments to hang. Or drill a hole in the top of the resin. Thread a thin cord through and tie in a knot. Then use a sturdy ornament hook to hang it.

And with all the shapes of cookie cutters and types of sprinkles, the design possibilities are endless! Which resin sprinkles ornament is your favorite?
