Okay, confession time. Although I’m pretty crafty, I’m absolutely horrible at icing cookies.

But these vinyl gingerbread ornaments make up for that fact. Aren’t they cute?

I love the simple, graphic look of these ornaments.

Supplies Needed:

These ornaments look the best with white vinyl to represent the icing. Red and green also work.

By the way, I realized that this is the easiest vinyl to transfer.

The tree ornament designs fit the tree ornaments that I linked above. They may not fit other tree shapes.
