  • We used two cups of each, but you can use less or more depending on how many ornaments you want to make.
  • Mix the applesauce & cinnamon vigorously until a dough begins to form. 
  • Add more cinnamon as needed until the desired consistency is reached. If the mixture is sticky at all add more cinnamon and mix it in.

  • Once the desired consistency is reached remove the dough from the bowl and place it between two pieces of parchment paper, rolling it out flat but not too thin

  • Lay the cut-outs onto a cookie pan, using a straw to pierce a hole into each one.  This will make the ornaments easier to string once they are done baking.

  • Bake the ornaments at 200 degrees for 2 hours.
  • Carefully remove the ornaments from the oven & allow them to cool.
  • Once cool string your ornaments from the tree & enjoy!

These applesauce ornaments were really fun to make, and they made our Christmas tree smell amazing!  

A Few Tips:
  • For extended fun have kids paint the ornaments using acrylic paint before hanging them from the tree.
  • If the scent starts to fade from your ornaments add a drop of gingerbread oil to revive them.
