Ornament made from 3" Christmas picture frame. A small table of thick cardboard was made to stick out from the bottom of the frame. The Heart of the Home is from scrapbook items from my stash. Glued to the top of the table is a bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough from paper clay and colored with paint, dotted chocolate chips on with paint. A turned tooth pick painted red on the end is inserted before the clay dries. A gingerbread button cookie, wooden spoon, rubber blade, rolling pin 3 candy canes and tree cookie cutter are glued on the top of the table. Underneath the table an apron was glued on with 2 pot holders and towel. This gives the table extra support. The gingerbread men are from the apron material, reinforced on the back with Mod Podge and cut out, glue onto material folded into a towel shape. Fray the ends. The back of the apron has a card stock sticker to reinforce the material front and make it rigid. It has a saying on it about the kitchen. Forgot to take a picture of the back. Silk ribbon was attached and tied on the back into a pretty bow for apron strings. I believe the back should be as pretty as the front. I was taught that at a young age when learning to sew. The seams are just as important and the rest of the item. I look at the construction of a handmade item or garment, just a habit.
Now on with the no bake cookies:
These tiny wood animals are from a bag of assorted size animals found in scrapbook area at Joanne 'Fabrics. There are about 4 sizes, the smallest size is by the toothpick. These would make great cookies painted in detail and icing with Mod Podge. Joanne's Fabrics also carry a package of assorted people in unfinished wood. The tinest could be used on a rest room door in miniature. Markers or paint could be used. I prefer the 3-D puffy paint because it has height to it and also a small applicator makes it easy to do small areas and looks just like Royal Icing when dry.
