To make this swag, we first made gingerbread ornaments. We prepared the dough with an easy NON EDIBLE recipe.
After rolling out your dough, cut out shapes using cookie cutters. Using a metal straw, make a hole in the top center.
We used white puffy paint to outline our ornaments to give them a realistic icing look.
Cut bakers twine in different lengths and knot together at the top. Making them different lengths will help your ornaments be staggered rather than stacked.
Tie a decorated "cookie" to the bottom of each strand.
To make this a swag, simple tie it onto a bundle of fresh greenery. We secured it with metal floral wire.
That's it! You can save and reuse the gingerbread "cookies" each year. They are great for ornaments as well!
