Cinnamon Ornaments

Do-it-Yourself: Decorate
Cinnamon Ornaments
hese suede-looking ornaments are lovely additions to any Christmas tree and are great fragrant additions to any lonely door handle or linen drawer.

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup ground cinnamon 
  • 1 tablespoon ground cloves 
  • 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg 
  • 3/4 cup applesauce 
  • 2 tablespoons glue 

Directions:
1. In a medium bowl, stir together the cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Mix in the applesauce and glue. Work the mixture with your hands 2 to 3 minutes to form a ball. If mixture is too wet, add more cinnamon. If mixture is too dry, add more applesauce. 
2. Lightly dust a clean surface with cinnamon. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters, and use a toothpick to make a hole at the top for hanging with a ribbon. 
3. Dry in a slow oven 200 degrees F (100 degrees C) for several hours, or air dry in a sunny spot for 4 or 5 days. When dry, decorate with gingham and/ or ribbon.
