diy: 3 ingredient cinnamon christmas ornaments

I shared this project on the Babiekins blog last December...and since we're planning on making these after school one day this week, I thought I'd post the directions here.  This project is super easy and will make your whole house smell so Christmasy! xo

To make about two dozen ornaments {depending on the size of your cookie cutters}, you’ll need:

1 cup applesauce

1 cup cinnamon + a bit extra for rolling out dough

2 tablespoons ground cloves

*I buy spices for projects like this at the $1 store or in the bulk bins at the grocery store

Mix all ingredients in a large bowl until everything is well incorporated and a dough forms. It's easiest just digging in and using your hands.

**even though only food ingredients are used, don’t eat these!

Roll out dough, sprinkling extra cinnamon as you would flour to prevent sticking to the rolling pin and counter.

When dough is about 1/2 inch thick, use cookie cutters to cut out ornaments.

Use a wooden skewer to poke a hole through each ornament.

Place ornaments on a cookie sheet and bake in a 225 degree oven for about an hour. Ornaments should be rock hard and completely dried out when they’re done.

When the ornaments have completely cooled, thread a piece of twine through each hole and hang on the tree!

And after you've made your ornaments and decorated the tree, why not grab dinner and movie?  Explore the galaxy, sing with the Chipmunks or solve a Sherlock mystery—and dine out with Special by’s Dinner & a Movie deal. 

Now through December 20 for $30, you’ll receive two tickets PLUS a $100 eGift card to redeem for a star-rated restaurant.

Spend family time discovering the perfect table and flick. Use your movie tickets to see any winter blockbuster hit here. Hurry – this offer ends Sunday, December 20 at 11:59 pm CT or when it’s sold out.

Of course this post was sponsored by, but all opinions are my own.  As always, thanks for reading!  xoxo
