Cinnamon Ornaments

Posted by cuppiecakes on January 21, 2009

Ok, so I know that I am posting this AFTER the holidays, but better late than never!  This is an easy “recipe” (they ARE NOT edible!) for great smelling Christmas ornaments.  It is also a fun craft to do with your kids, as it is relatively mess free.  You will need:

 

1 cup ground cinnamon
4 tbsp. white glue
3/4 to 1 cup water 

   

Stir together cinnamon, glue and water.
Mixture should be as thick as cookie dough.
Refrigerate the dough for at least 2 hours.
Sprinkle cinnamon on you work surface.
Knead the dough until smooth.
Sprinkle more cinnamon on your work surface and roll the dough to about 1/3 inch thick.
Cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Using a straw, poke a hole at the top of each ornament, for hanging.
Bake the ornaments in a warm oven (about 250 ° to 270 ° ) for two hours.

When I have made these in the past, I have also added about 1 tablespoon of cinnamon colored (bronze etc…) glitter.  You can find glitter like this at your local craft store (Martha Stewart’s line of craft products has a great shade of glitter that would be perfect for these!)  It adds an extra little sparkle that looks great on your tree!
