Spending several months on the west coast and being close to our grandchildren has been wonderful! I love that they enjoy helping in the kitchen and I thought that making homemade cinnamon applesauce ornaments would be a wonderful craft to do with my granddaughter.Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments

These ornaments smell wonderful and there is still time to make them before Christmas!Ingredients for ornaments

Just mix 1 ½ cups of cinnamon with 1 cup of applesauce to make your dough.Combine cinnamon and aplesauce

Place the dough between two pieces of waxed paper and roll out with your rolling pin to about 1/8 inch thickness. I found slightly thicker worked better.applesauce ornaments Peel off the top piece of wax paper and cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Add a small hole at the top of each shape with a straw or skewer and let them dry over night, or until they are completely hard. You could also put them in a 150-degree oven to speed up the drying process. Place them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes.applesauce ornaments

When cool thread a ribbon through the small hole to hang.

My granddaughter was thrilled to wrap her ornaments to put under the tree for gift giving!applesauce ornaments

Such a fun morning, can’t wait until our next craft day!

What precious memories you are making as well as the ornaments, Nancy! The photographs are lovely! There’s something so lovely about homemade ornaments like this – what a great tradition! Thank you so much for sharing them with us at the Hearth and Soul Hop. Hope to ‘see’ you again this week – the hop is open now.

Erin,
Have fun, the dough is a little tricky and I’ve seen some suggestions to add a little glue to the mixture. Fun memories to be sure!
