Christmas Cinnamon Ornaments

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.



Cinnamon Ornaments

1/2" cup of Cinnamon

1/2" cup of Applesauce

Cookie press

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!

The Deer cookie press is from House on the Hill line of cookie molds. I bought them from Fantes Kitchen Shop.
