Cinnamon Ornaments

It is time to start getting ready for Christmas! These cute and wonderfully smelling ornaments are a great addition to holiday crafting and decorating. They are simple to make and kids love them. They also add a great homemade touch to gifts if you use one or two to decorate a wrapped present.


You will need:

3 cups ground cinnamon

3 cups applesauce

*Optional: puff paints


  1. Mix ingredients together.
  2. Knead dough in hands for several minutes until a ball is formed.
  3. Dust work space lightly with additional cinnamon.
  4. Roll dough 1/8″-1/4″ thick with a rolling pin. Cut dough into a variety of shapes using cookie cutters. Suggestions: gingerbread men, hearts, stars, Christmas trees, bells, wreaths, etc.
  5. Poke hole through top of dough using a straw or toothpick for hanging later.
  6. Air dry for several days, turning twice a day until completely dry. They can also be baked in a 225 degree oven until dry.
  7. Decorate with paint if desired and allow to dry before hanging.
  8. Hang from fancy ribbon or cording.
