How to make it

  • Combine first 5 ingredients until stiff dough forms, kneading well with hands.
  • Roll dough out onto cinnamon dusted surface, about 1/4-inch thick, then cut with desired cookie cutter shapes such as teddy bears, hearts, Christmas trees, snowflakes, stars, candy canes, gingerbread boy (or girl), angels, etc...
  • Lay ornaments on a sheet of waxed paper and cut a small hole in the top (a plastic straw works well), then put in a safe place for drying. **Depending on how dry your home is, it can take about 2-4 days for the ornaments to dry completely.**
  • Be sure to turn the ornaments over few times a day to ensure even drying.
  • When ornaments are dry, use fabric paint to decorate if desired (just like you would a cookie), then thread a pretty ribbon through the hole for hanging on Christmas tree, or all throughout the house!
  • Happy Holidays!
