Scented Cinnamon Ornaments

If you're looking for a fun craft that you can use as a gift or just decorate your tree with, these little ornaments are ideal. I think the smaller ornaments are cute as package decorations, too. These are easy and inexpensive to make and the scent is wonderful in your house!

My Holiday Scrapbook:

Scented Cinnamon Ornaments

1 C cinnamon
3/4 C applesauce
2 TBSP white school glue
1 TBSP cloves
1 TBSP nutmeg

Combine spices, add applesauce and glue. Stir to combine. Work mixture w/ hands 2-3 min. or until dough is smooth. Divide into 4 parts. Roll out each dough portion to 1/4". Cut into desired shapes. Make a small hole in the top of each ornament w/ a straw(for the ribbon). Allow to dry at room temperature for 3-4 days. Turn ornaments once a day for uniform drying. Thread ribbon through hole in the ornament.

Have a great Friday, everyone!

I'll be at these swaps today; give them a look for lots of great recipes and ideas!


  1. I never heard or seen these before. You've made me very curious, Marcia. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Blessings...Mary

  2. I have a cinnamon ornament on my tree that my son made when we was small. What a fun project for kids.

  3. I made these last year for the first time, and loved them. It was so fun and made our home smell so good.

  4. Thanks so much for linking to Saturday Swap. This sounds like such a fun idea and something I will make with my kiddos over Christmas break! PS ~ Please remember to include the Saturday Swap button or an actual link back to the Swap. Have a great weekend!!!
