Cookie Cute Printable Garland & Ornaments

This gingerbread man garland was my first free printable, and the most popular by far. Print off as many as you like, cut them out and string together to decorate a wall, shelf or mantelpiece. You can even print it half size for a mini garland or cut out individual cookies for tree ornaments, gift tags or place settings. If you don’t have a printer, I also sell ornament postcards, ready printed for cutting out.
