The Fifth Cookie Cutter Christmas Ornament Will Skate Its Way Into Your Heart

While Hallmark has several series of scenes within a shape right now, the most popular and the cutest is definitely Cookie Cutter Christmas.  Honestly, I’m a bit surprised when I realized we have reached the fifth ornament in the series this year.  It’s another winner.

The ornament this year is in the shape of a mitten.  Now personally, a mitten is not something I think of when I think of cookie cutters.  Maybe it’s my lack of experience with cookie cutters or lack of imagination that are to blame for this, but either way, this is my only issue with the ornament and it’s a very minor one.

And a mitten does fit the scene inside.  Our little mouse friend is ice skating, something you definitely want to wear mittens for.  He’s got his arms spread, his scarf is flying out behind him, and he is obviously enjoying himself.  In the forefront of the scene are two gumdrop bushes.  Behind the lake are snow topped mountains and trees with snow on them.  They work in food to these ornaments as much as possible, which is why the trees have red dots on the top, making them look slightly like ice cream sundaes.  And the skates the mouse is skating on?  Candy canes, of course.

The word I have most often used to describe this series is cute, and it still applies here.  This is a very cute scene that is so much fun to look at.  There’s also the creativity of putting a complete scene instead the shape of the mitten cookie cutter.  I really do love this ornament.

And sometimes it’s the little details that make me smile.  In this case, the ice that the mouse is skating on is clear.  No, we don’t see anything in it – in fact, we see what looks like snow through it.  Still, it’s a bit of fun.

Some of the ornaments in this series will stand on their own, but this isn’t one of them.  That’s because the bottom of the ornament is the rounded part of the mittens.  However, it hangs perfectly straight, which isn’t surprising since the loop is in the top part of the cookie cutter.  And yes, you’ll find the series marker on the back of the ornament.

The creativity and cuteness of Cookie Cutter Christmas is still front and center for the fifth entry.  Fans of the series will be delighted, as will anyone looking for a cute ornament.

If you need more cuteness (and who doesn't), here are the rest of the Cookie Cutter Christmas ornaments.
