DIY: Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments

Baystateparent Magazine
Cinnamon Applesauce ornaments are easy to make and smell amazing.

Cinnamon and applesauce. That is all you need to make these easy Christmas ornaments that smell oh-so-good. Hang them on the tree, around the house, or attach to a present. You can use these anywhere you want a scented, festive pop. 

What You Need:

1 1/4 cup ground cinnamon 

1 cup smooth applesauce 

Ribbon or twine

Whole cloves (optional) 

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 200 degrees. 

In a medium bowl, combine the cinnamon and applesauce with a spoon or spatula until a dough forms. Knead a few times with your hands. Dough should be moist and smooth, not sticky.

Shape into a ball, and chill in the refrigerator for one hour. 

Sprinkle a little cinnamon on your working surface. With a rolling pin, roll dough out to about 1/4 inch thickness. Cut desired shapes with cookie cutters. Use a straw or dowel to make a small hole in each shape to hang it. Decorate with cloves, if desired.

Bake ornaments on a parchment lined baking sheet for two hours, or until completely firm. 

Let ornaments cool completely, then thread ribbon or twine through the hole to hang them.
