Spicing Things Up a Bit!

This week we had so much fun with cinnamon ornaments! A relative had gifted me with several huge bottles of cinnamon, so this was a wonderful use for it - and it was easy, too!

Here is our recipe:

1 cup (4 oz) of cinnamon
3/4 cup of applesauce
1 Tbsp. each of cloves and nutmeg
2 Tbsp. white glue

Mix, roll out, dry in a very low oven (150) or on the countertop.

I think next time I might add some more glue... possibly a bit of water (to prevent cracking). But the recipe works well as-is.

The construction mess.

After rolling out and punching ribbon holes with a straw. 

These made really cute gifts that we are using for little gifts for extended family and for our baby's therapists. They smell wonderful! 

Have fun! Hope you all are enjoying this week before Christmas!
