Apple Sauce and Cinnamon Christmas Ornaments

Making these simple ornaments have become a Christmas tradition for us! This is our 3rd year making them so I am putting together this mini tutorial for you! 

WARNING: THESE ARE NOT TO BE CONSUMED! They may smell amazing but do not be tempted! 

REQUIRED ITEMS : 

  • Apple Sauce 
  • Cinnamon
  • rolling pin
  • Straw or something to make a hole 
  • ribbon to hang on tree
  • bowl to mix

Optional Items:

  • Cookie cutters in your favorite holiday shapes
  • wax paper
  • glitter glue pens
  • acrylic paints 

 

What you need to do first is mix an entire bottle of cinnamon with some room temperature apple sauce. I have never made actual measurements just add and mix together with your hands until you get a good roll-able ball. I a little on the moist side but not to sticky. ( Seen below…it’s good to have some extra cinnamon on hand in case you add to much apple sauce)  I like to roll out my “dough” on wax paper gives you less of a mess and easy clean up.

At this point if you have cookie cutters, cut out your shapes to what ever thickness you like. Remember this thick the shape the heavier they will be and longer they will take to dry. If you plan to hang them on the tree this is when you need to use a straw to make a hole threw the ornaments. (Once all your shapes are cut put them all on a cookie sheet. You can let them air dry over night if you prefer but I like to put them in an oven on the lowest temperature for about an hour. ( this makes the house smell amazing)  Keep an eye on them in the oven about 30 minutes make sure to carefully flip them over.

This is where I let me daughters go to town decorating them. We used glitter glue pens this year.

The following pictures are from previous years. These are the ones that have survived the years! Still have a slight scent! The first two were decorated with glitter glue pens and the last 2 were colored with acylic paints.
