Cookie Cutter Charm Necklace. DIY your own cookie cutter charm necklaces as cookie exchange party favors. It is an easy jewelry project to make.
This last week I hosted a cookie exchange party at my house. We had a lot of fun! I really appreciate my friends taking the time to bake and package up their treats, so I always like to send them home with a little favor. In years past, I have done cookie cutters and OREO balls as favors. This year I wanted to do something unique, so I created cookie cutter charm necklaces for each of my guests.

How to Make Cookie Cutter Charm Necklaces
- Bead Chain Necklace
- Cookie Cutter Charms
- Christmas Pearl & Crystal Beads
- Silver Ball Headpins
- Flat Nose Pliers
- Round Nose Pliers
I started by adding the charm to the chain. My package of charms came with a Christmas tree, snowflake, stocking, gingerbread man, candy cane, and ornament.
How to make a looped wire bead
Next, you will need to create a looped wire bead. For each charm, I chose a pearl and a crystal bead to wire wrap. Add your ball headpin to the bead and then bend the wire at a 90° angle using your flat nose pliers.
Grasp the wire at the bend with the round nose pliers and twist the wire to create a loop.
While holding the loop with the round nose pliers, use the flat nose pliers to wrap the excess wire around itself just above the bead and below the loop. Do this for both one pearl and one crystal bead.
Add your wire wrapped beads to the chain.
To package up all the necklaces, I used a piece of kraft cardstock and trimmed it to fit inside a small jewelry bag. Create small slits with scissors to the top of the cardstock and add the necklace.
I displayed them all on the cupcake stand that I decorated with some candy cane garland.
The necklaces all turned out beautiful. And I think everyone really enjoyed them!
