We made more ornaments today. I really didn't plan to, but I'm glad we did. My friend came to visit today, and was telling my girls and I about cinnamon ornaments. Apparently, when she was in kindergarten, many years ago, she made one for her mother. She claims it still smells good to this day. Yep, I was sold! I also heard that you can spray cinnamon oil on them to refresh them. I thought it was a wonderful idea. :) Anyhow they are super easy to make and they do smell so wonderful. While making them, the whole house filled up with a wonderful cinnamon aroma. I think my hubby was a bit disappointed, that they weren't edible, when he arrived home. Ha! Good thing we made some no-bake cookies shortly before.
1 cup ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons glue
3/4 cup applesauce
Lightly dust the surface with cinnamon. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters, and use a straw to make a hole at the top for hanging.
When dry, decorate!
We choose to decorate with glitter. We also added glue and then poured salt on the glue, then lightly touched the glue with watercolors. Those turned out pretty cute.
I also chose to not decorate a few, just because they were so cute the way they were. :) Hope you have fun making yours.
