Scented Cinnamon Ornaments



4 oz. can (1 cup) cinnamon

1 Tbsp. ground cloves

3/4 cup applesauce

2 Tbsp. white glue


In medium bowl, combine cinnamon, cloves, & nutmeg. Add applesauce and glue; stir to combine. Work mixture with hands 2-3 minutes until dough is smooth & ingredients are thoroughly mixed. Divide into 4 portions. Roll out each portion to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters. Using a straw or toothpick, make small hole in top of ornament. Place on wire racks & allow to dry at room temperature for several days, turning over once a day. Thread ribbon through hole. DO NOT EAT!!!

*This recipe was requested by Rachel, who came here via Friday Playdate and she thought I should share it here. My daughter, mom, & I made these last year. We had a great time making them and I gave them as gifts to my daughters preschool class. We put them in cellophane baggies with candy canes and tied a pretty little ribbon on the bag as their Christmas gift. Inexpensive, pretty, and they smell good too! Enjoy.

  1. I read that same post over at FPD and wondered how to make them. We have a thing for cinnamon at our house and we are definitely going to make these.

  2. What a wonderful idea. Thanks for sharing. Bet they smell great.

  3. I’m so excited! My sons love our cinnamon ornaments, but they were a gift and I honestly had NO IDEA that they were so easy to make. Now our ENTIRE plastic tree can smell terrific. How fun!

    Thank you! (And Rachel, too!)

  4. Dude, I am totally doing this. Thanks!
