Fragrant Cinnamon Ornaments

Cinnamon Ornaments
1 cup cinnamon
3/4 cup apple sauce
Mix well
Roll out to 1/4 inch thickness. Use cookie cutters of your choice to cut out ornaments. 
Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
Use a straw to make a hole for hanging on each ornament.
Place ornaments on ungreased cookie sheet.
Place in oven for 2 to 2.5 hours until hard.
Cool completely before stringing.
Enjoy the pleasant cinnamon fragrance! May be packed away for future use and will keep their scent for a while.

Here are mine coming out of the oven. I made stars for hanging and rolled the leftover into little balls to place in a decorative bowl. I added flour to roll it out and they ended up looking snow dusted. I like them!



Using the recipe above, I got 23 stars and 7 balls.



Made a simple (and yummy smelling) garland to hang above the stockings.
We can't find our stockings either, which is a shame, because they were gorgeous velvet in different shades of blue. We personalized them with silver letters. Ah well. Found some that will do for this year from Dollar Tree. Baby Boy picked his out especially.


Then Baby Boy helped me hang the rest on the tree. 


The pomanders and these stars are so Christmasy smelling! You get a light whiff whenever you walk by. Love it :)

  1. Homemade ornaments are so much fun to make and make so many memories when you make them with your child. What fun to have JJ decorate the tree with them. Hugs and kisses for JJ. I love you.
