Elegant Christmas Ornaments

 

I'm loving this color scheme this year. Beige, red  and white. It is simple and elegant. I was color  inspired by the cover picture  of Martha Stewart Living magazine.
 I hope you won't mind, I didn't make a  picture step by step  tutorial as  I kind of ran out of time. This design can be adapted  to any  cookie cutter shape you have. Keeping it simple makes them really pop, what do you think ?

To make the cookies I used beautiful  Cookie Cutter Christmas Ornaments by Fancy Flours.
Small Batch Royal icing recipe
Cut out cookie recipes
Gel Food Colorings 


Cookies flooded with a base beige color.


Once the  beige base is dry you can pipe remaining details.Holly branch was piped after  the red border dried .Once the piped brown branch is dry, add dots of white icing and sprinkle sanding sugar on top to achieve the snowy look.

To style my photo I used a recently  bought  wood window wall piece. I got it  at a garage sale for a steal of $10. Pretty neat, isn't it?



Green raffia was used to hang the cookies.
