Updated: I created this post Cinnaman Ornaments you make at home about four years ago. The grandkids loved making them. It’s a simple inexpensive way to get creative with the kids. That’s why I wanted to update the recipe and post it again!

Today I want to share this fun and super easy craft you can make with, or without the kiddos. Today I’m making mine without the grandkids, but I’m going to make them again, with the grandkids so they can give them as gifts. The ingredients are so simple, you may already have them in your pantry. I found this recipe on the McCormick recipe website. 

When these are baking in the oven your house will smell like cinnamon heaven for several hours 🙂 Very nice for the holidays.

Cinnamon Ornaments

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup applesauce, since we weren't eating these I used store bought 🙂
  • 4.12 ounces of ground cinnamon ( 1 cup 2 tablespoons )
  • Plastic wrap
  • Cookie cutters
  • Drinking straw
  • Colorful ribbon

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F
  2. Mix the applesauce and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
  3. It will look like this. Use your hands to form a large ball. 
  4. Using a 1/4 of your dough at a time. Place the dough between two sheets of plastic wrap. Using a rolling pin and flatten to 1/3 - 1/4 inch thickness.
  5. Use a cookie cutter to make your shapes.
  6. Lay the cut-out dough on a cookie sheet. Use your straw to make the hole so you can hang your ornament.
  7. Bake for 2 1/2 hours.
  8. Cool on a wire rack for 1 to 2 days until completely dried.
  9. When dry, place the ribbon through the hole and tie to hang.

    Wow this is neat! I will definitely have to try this and it looks super easy too! I wonder if they will hold their scent for more than just the current season, or if there is a way to re-scent them?

      They have a pretty strong cinnamon scent. I bet they would hold the scent, guess we’ll find out next year 🙂 Thanks for commenting and have a Happy Holiday Season!
