Chances are, you have a holiday cookie cutter bin filled to the brim with tangles of bells, Christmas trees and reindeer shapes. But, sometimes, just one cutter will do. A simple circle.

Opting for one will save on clean up, allow for more even baking and the out-of-the-oven cookies will present themselves as round, blank canvas with infinite decorative possibilities. Heck, you can even forgo cutters all together and use the rim of a cup.

Here are 31 fun decorating ideas to keep things interesting and a trio of recipes on Relish to try. First up, an inspirational holiday infographic to bookmark, plus 11 fun cookie decorating tutorials from around the web.
