Cinnamon OrnamentsFrom fizzle3nat 8 years ago
- 1 c. ground cinnamon, plus more for work surface shopping list
- 4 TBSP. white craft glue (Aleene's Craft Glue is a good choice) shopping list
- 3/4 c. to 1 c. of water shopping list
- Acrylic paints, for decorating shopping list
- Additional glue, for decorating shopping list
- cookie decorations, like non-pareils, confetti, etc, for decorating shopping list
How to make it
- Mix together cinnamon, glue, and 3/4 c. water. Mixture should be as thick as cookie dough. If too thick, add additional water 1 tsp. at a time until the right consistency is reached.
- Cover and chill dough for 2 hours in refrigerator. Sprinkle additional cinnamon on work surface and empty the dough onto the work surface. Knead dough until smooth.
- Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Using a drinking straw, poke a hole in each ornament for hanging.
- To dry the shapes, lay them on waxed paper at room temperature and turn them over twice a day for four days. To speed drying, you can alternatively bake the ornaments on a cookie sheet in a warm (200 degree) oven for 2 1/2 hours, turning every 15 minutes (in my opinion, the scent lasts longer if you air-dry the ornaments).
- After ornaments are dry, you can paint them with acrylic paints. You can also use glue and cookie decorations to decorate the ornaments. That is what we did on the ornaments pictured - they look like cookies on your tree and add such a lovely fragrance to your home. Thread ribbons through the holes you made in the finished ornaments to hang them. Refresh the scent each year with a few drops of cinnamon essential oil.
- Merry Christmas!
