Cinnamon applesauce ornament recipe



These are so much fun to make, and your house will smell like Christmas instantly!

Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments

Ingredients
1 1/2 - cups store bought applesauce
1 1/2 - cups cinnamon + more for dusting
1/8 - cup tacky glue (I used Elmer's)
ribbon, glitter, jewels or puffy fabric paint for decorating 

Directions
Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. If the “dough” is too dry, add more applesauce; if it is too wet, add more cinnamon.

Lay a piece of waxed paper or foil on the counter. Roll out the dough to about 1/8 inch thick (cut them more on the thicker side, so they will last for years). Cut out different shapes by using cookie cutters. 

Don't forget to add the holes (use a straw) while the dough is wet. Lay ornaments on foil-covered pan and place in the oven on 170 degrees for 30 minutes.

Remove from oven and let dry for 24-48 hours. Use some holiday ribbon to hang your cinnamon ornaments on the Christmas tree.

Decorating: Once the ornaments are completely dry you can pull out a few craft supplies to decorate with. Choose glitter, jewels, acrylic paint, white puffy fabric paint and clear Elmer’s Glue to help things stick.

Cook's Note: If the cinnamon scent starts to fade away just add a drop of cinnamon oil to refresh the ornament. 


Christmas Ornaments handmade by you :: Dried Apples and Cinnamon


Cut up apples into slices, run string through them, hang up and dry out. Simple as that. The weather has been cold and dry here, which is perfect for drying fruit. When the apple slices were nice and dry, we strung them with a little raffia and added a stick of cinnamon. Easy Peasy.
