- Paint your clothes using them
Since cookie cutters come in different shapes, you can use them for painting perfect shapes in your favorite shirts and tops. If you use them, you will not have to mark the borders of those shapes using a pencil or a pen. Just place them over the fabric, and the cutter will act as a stencil. Your t-shirts and tops will indeed look way more stylish and unique once you do this. If you wish, you can also mix some funky colors and then paint the cloth.
- Use them as Photo Frames
Cookie cutters can also be used as a frame for your photos very well. All you have to do is paste your favorite photograph on to cardboard and cut it according to the shape of the cookie cutter. Then you can simply fit that photo inside the cutter. If you like, you can also add support at the back of the cardboard or simply add a hook for hanging the pictures with frames on the walls of your homes. This will serve as a very creative decorative idea when you do not have the budget to buy photo frames.
- Use them while doing art and craft
To cut decorative paper in beautiful shapes, place the cookie cutter on top and mark the borders using a pencil. Heart-shaped or round cookie cutters are excellent for this purpose. After marking the borders, you can just cut the shape using a pair of scissors. The shapes will always come out to be perfect and never look different from one another. You can also use the cutters to simply pain borders of those shapes on papers.
- Use them for making candles
If you like having a square or heart-shaped candles, we suggest you to use cookie cutters to make them at home. For this purpose, simply take some regular candles and melt them over a heated surface. After that, pour the melted wax inside the cookie cutter. Wait for some time, and don’t forget to put a burning thread in it. After the wax has solidified, you will have your candle that you can burn any time. If you wish, you can also add essential oils in the melted wax so that when the candle burns, it imparts a fragrance into your room.
- Use them for making soaps
Soap making at home is honestly an enjoyable thing to do. You can learn the procedure of soap-making easy by having access to the internet. You can read many articles or watch instructional videos related to it. Once you are done gathering that information, you can use the cookie cutters as shaping-frames for your soap.

Extracting soaps from cookie cutters is easier than trays as you can pull the settled soap from both the sides of the cutter.
