Cinnamon- Applesauce Ornaments

Published October 11, 2013 by rumbl3

Cinnamon Ornaments-
1 c. ground cinnamon (bulk bin cinnamon works awesome)
1 c. Applesauce (generic is great)
1/4 c. Elmer’s glue (I’ve tried others, but Elmer’s works best)

Mix well in glass bowl. If dough is too stiff, add another tablespoon of applesauce.

Sprinkle counter with cinnamon dust so dough won’t stick to surface.

Roll out dough to about 1/4″ thick. Use reg. cookie cutters to cut out ornaments. If dough sticks to cookie cutters, sprinkle cinnamon on top of rolled out dough.

Take a regular plastic drinking straw to poke thru top of ornament for hanging string or ribbon.

Use a spatula to gently lift ornament and move to a large piece of cardboard. I break down a cardboard box and use for my drying trays.

Set ornaments aside for 24-48 hours to dry.

Decorate with yarns, pipecleaners, raffia, glitter and glue, sequins, buttons, etc.

If you store your ornaments after Christmas in ziplocs bags and a plain shoebox, they will retain their smell for years.
