    Default Non-Edible Cinnamon Ornaments

    Non-Edible Cinnamon Ornaments
    Submitted by: Susan
    "This is a very fun and easy craft project to make with children. Makes wonderful smelling ornaments and pretty 'package tie-ons!'" Original recipe yield: 1 dozen, depending on size.


    INGREDIENTS:
    1 cup ground cinnamon
    1 tablespoon ground cloves
    1 tablespoon ground nutmeg
    3/4 cup applesauce
    2 tablespoons glue

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    DIRECTIONS:
    In a medium bowl, stir together the cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Mix in the applesauce and glue. Work the mixture with your hands 2 to 3 minutes to form a ball. If mixture is too wet, add more cinnamon. If mixture is too dry, add more applesauce.
    Lightly dust a clean surface with cinnamon. Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters, and use a toothpick to make a hole at the top for hanging with a ribbon.
    Dry in a slow oven 200 degrees F (100 degrees C) for several hours, or air dry in a sunny spot for 4 or 5 days. When dry, decorate with gingham and/ or ribbon.

    Recipe 1: The recipe that I use is
    1/2 cup ground cinnamon,
    1/3 cup applesauce, and
    1 Tbs. Tacky glue Mix in bowl and stir until well blended. Work mixture in hands for three minutes to form a ball. If it is too dry, add applesauce, if too wet, add more cinnamon. Knead ball on cinnamon-sprinkled surface until it holds togehter well. I roll this out and use cookie cutters for the shapes. I also use a drinking straw to cut a hanging hole. These can be air dried for 24 to 48 hours. Turn several times. They can also be baked in a slow oven. Recipe 2:
    1 lb. powdered cinnamon
    3/4 c. applesauce
    1/8 c. orris root powder (optional)
    1/8 oz. apple fragrance (optional) Add scent to the orris root and mix well. Combine with the cinnamon powder and add the applesauce. Add a tiny bit of apple cider if it's too dry, or more cinnamon if too wet. Roll out no thinner than 1/4" and cut out shapes. Use a straw to cut a hole at the top if making a hanging ornament. Dry in a dehydrator or air-dry. Let dry thoroughly and sand the rough edges with a fingernail file and paint with fabric paints. Recipe 3:
    1-4 oz. can of cinnamon
    1 T. cloves
    1 T. nutmeg
    3/4 cup applesauce
    2 T. white glue Mix dry ingredients and add to wet ingredients Mix thoroughly. Roll out and cut shapes. Let dry several days, turning over frequently. Do not eat!!! Recipe 4:
    1 c. cinnamon
    1 t. nutmeg
    1 t. allspice
    1 t. ground cloves
    1 c. applesauce Combine dry ingredients. Add applesauce a little at a time, mixing thoroughly. Roll out and cut shapes. Allow to dry 4-5 days. Paint after completely dry. Recipe 5:
    1 Cup Cinnamon
    1T Cloves
    1T Nutmeg
    3/4 C Applesauce
    2T White glue combine cinnamon, cloves & nutmeg. Add applesauce & glue, stir to combine, work mixture with hands for 2-3 minutes. Divide into 4 parts. Roll each to 1/4" thickness. Use straw or toothpick for hole. Place on wire rack & allow to dry at room temp. Turn after a day. (takes about 2 days to dry). I use white fabric paint to decorate, looks like frosting.
