Homemade Cinnamon Ornaments are a great craft project to do with your kids during the holidays and they smell great too! You can pick up the ingredients at the Dollar Store. This is such a frugal project during the holidays!
3/4 – 1 cup apple sauce (depends on if chunky or not – start with 3/4 and stir in more if needed)
1 cup cup ground cinnamon
Mix together applesauce and cinnamon, knead and then roll out with a rolling pin (it will form a dough). You can sprinkle with cinnamon when rolling out if too moist. Then cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Make a hole in the top of the ornament with a straw. Let ornaments dry. Add a ribbon after it dries and use it as an ornament or present tag. We like to keep them from year to year in a box layered between tissue paper.
You can place plastic wrap between the dough while forming a dough ball. This makes for less mess! Bake the ornaments on 200 degrees for 2 1/2 hours to harden the dough. This also makes your house smell amazing! I love to make these before we have company.
