Put your cookie cutters on display with a handy kitchen pegboard!

When looking for baking inspiration, I always find it helpful to tip out my cookie cutter collection to see what shapes I have and then go from there. This gave me the idea to make a cute pegboard for my kitchen wall and now it's super quick to see all the shapes I have available!



Instructions

  • How to make a hook or hanger. Cookie Cutter Pegboard - Step 1
    Step 1

    To start, you'll need a frame and a sheet of cork board and a sheet of card large enough to fit inside. Cut to size and mount in your frame with the cork board to the back.

    You might recognise my frame from the Vintage Headband Holder I made a few years ago. It got pretty beat up in the move and didn't have a place in our new home, so I decided to reuse it and keep the light-up headband in the middle.

    To get the lovely pale mint colour, I mixed together two parts of the green with three parts white.

    Paint a second coat, using this opportunity to lighten or darken your paint ratio to your liking. I chose to go even lighter with my paint as it had darkened a lot when it dried.
