This project was inspired by those cookies we’ve all made around the holidays. You know the ones, where you melt hard candies in the center? The beauty of these is that, unlike the actual cookies, you can reuse them each year. You also won’t have the temptation to eat them!

Step by Step Instructions
Using the pattern, cut two matching cookie shapes from the brown felt. Cut out the center. Cut a two or three circles from the sheer fabric that’s larger than the center but smaller than the outer edge of the ornament.
Tip: You can use any sheer fabric in your desired color like organza or tulle.
Apply a thin string of hot glue centered between the inner and outer edges of the cutout, then layer the three sheer circles on top. It’s important that the glue is in the center so it won’t get in the way of the stitching you’ll be adding near the edges later.
Add a second layer of hot glue on top of the first. Fold the ribbon, press the ends into the glue and lay the top cookie over it.
Use white embroidery thread so it will look like frosting, and adding the stitching of your choice near the inner and outer edges.
Hang them in a window so you can see through the centers, or enjoy them on the tree.
