Watch this video on how you can make it in minutes!
Ingredients for cinnamon applesauce ornaments:
- 3/4 cup store bought applesauce
- 1 cup cinnamon + more for dusting
- about an 1/8 – cup tacky glue (I used Elmer’s and I just eye balled it)
- Christmas cookie cutters
- a straw to poke a hole
- ribbon to hang

How to make cinnamon ornaments:
1. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
If the cinnamon “dough” is too dry, add more applesauce. However, if it is too wet, add more cinnamon.
2. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin to about 1/8 inch thick (I like to cut them more on the thicker side, so they will last for years but you can do 1/4 inch thickness if you prefer). Cut out shapes by using your favorite cookie cutters.
3. Poke holes in the ornaments with a straw and place on a foil lined baking sheet. Bake in a 170 degrees oven for 30 minutes. (Oven temps vary so you may need 200 degrees.)
4. Remove and let air dry for 24 – 48 hours. I flipped mine over after 24 hours and let it to continue to dry.
5. Add decorations (or leave them beautifully plain like we did). Add ribbon and enjoy it on your Christmas tree.

Tips to make diy Christmas cinnamon ornaments:
- Sometimes the dough can shift when you place your masterpiece on the baking sheet. I like to cut the hole in the ornament after I have already moved it onto the baking sheet.
- This prevents the hole from becoming skewed if the dough does shift slightly.
- It also helps if you have a really good baking sheet. I actually just had to replace several of mine.

How long do cinnamon ornaments last?
They will last for years and years with a few helpful tips. You do not want to roll the dough too thin because they will be more likely to break.
The thinner they are, the more fragile the ornament. Just keep that in mind.
Also, you can coat each ornament with clear spray to seal it. Be sure to seal the front and back of the ornaments.
