Make It: Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments

Yesterday I had an amazing opportunity to be on a local morning TV show, WDRB in the Morning, with my super talented crafting buddy Craft E Magee.   We demonstrated glitter glass ornaments and also cinnamon applesauce ornaments.  Here is our video for the cinnamon ornaments:

Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments

To make the dough you’ll need:  1 cup ground cinnamon, 1/4 cup applesauce, 1/2 cup glue.  Mix it all together until a dough forms.  You may need to use your hands to get it mixed up, as the dough will be slightly dry.  Let sit for 1 hour.

Flatten the dough and use a rolling pin until the dough is 1/4 inch thick.

Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes.

Poke a hole for hanging in the top of each shape with a straw.

Bake in the oven at 200-degrees for 1-2 hours, turning halfway through.  Keep in until the dough has dried completely.  Alternately, you can leave out on a cooling rack overnight to dry.

Once the shapes have cooled, use glue to adhere glitter.

Place a ribbon or hook through the hole and hang on your tree.

Do not eat these, and do not make fun of me for stammering at the end of the video.  Have you ever made these before?  They are so fun for kids to make and I hope you'll try them this holiday.
