Wondering what to do with some of your old baking sheets that are no longer suitable for making cookies? Check out this fun Christmas craft of transforming an old cookie sheet into an interactive and festive Christmas-themed magnetic tray for the holidays.
Cookie Sheet Craft Idea for Christmas
As I gathered my baking supplies for the holidays I noticed it was time to replace my old cookie sheets. And not wanting to just through the old sheets away, I started to think of ways to creatively repurpose them. Inspired by this magnetic board my sister made for her craft room using an old cookie sheet, I thought to make a magnetic tray for Christmas.
My thought was to place the tray on the table for the kids to play with when we’re all gathered around for lunches and dinners. I found some laser cut wooden decorations to use as magnets for the tray so it appears as though thetree is being decorated with ornaments.

How to Make a Cookie Sheet Christmas Craft
Paint a Christmas tree on the cookie sheet using acrylic paint in shades of green and let it dry completely.
Using the hot glue gun, glue twine around the inside edges of the cookie sheet.
Paint the wooden cut-outs and let them dry completely.
Cut the magnet to fit the back of the wooden cut-outs and glue them in place.
Add as many or as few mini ornament magnets as you like and place them on the magnetic tray. Finish off the tray with a large holiday bow.
