Hello Friends! I'm here to share a easy Christmas ornament diy! This is a recipe that I've been making for many years. I still have ornaments my daughters made when they were little girls.
1/2" cup of Cinnamon
1/2" cup of Applesauce
white acrylic paint
toothpick for hole
Mix cinnamon and applesauce together. If it's too wet and sticky, add more cinnamon.
I did use quite a bit more cinnamon to keep the dough from sticking on rolling pin and on the work surface.
Dry your ornaments on a flat surface for several days. Or faster method is to dry in a food dehydrator. That is what I did. It took about 4 hours. A third method is in your oven set at lowest temperature. May take up to 6 hours or more.
When they are hard and dry, I took white acrylic paint and a soft piece of cloth and just a tiny bit of paint and rubbed lightly over the surface.
Add a ribbon or twine and you have the most wonderful smelling ornament that last for many years! They hold their scent for extremely well. The ones I have from when my daughters were little have to been about 25 years ago and still smell great!
