How to Make Simple Cinnamon Ornaments on a Budget

Homemade gifts are the best, especially when they come from the littlest members of the family. 

Here’s a great recipe for cinnamon ornaments to make with your little ones:

Mix 1 ½ cups of applesauce with 2 envelopes of Jell-o and let it sit for about 4 minutes.  Then place the mixture in a pot and simmer for a few minutes.  Remove from the stove.

To the warmed applesauce and Jell-o concoction add ½ cup of cornstarch, 2 ounces of cinnamon and 6 tablespoons of ground cloves.  Knead the ingredients together, seal in plastic wrap and then set aside for 10 minutes.

Take the cinnamon ornament dough out of the plastic and roll it out onto a flat surface.  Cut the dough with decorative holiday cookie cutters and poke holes in the tops of each one for adding ribbon or string later.

Let the ornaments sit out on the counter for 2 to 3 days.  Turn them everyday, then add ribbon and deliver your homemade cinnamon ornaments to family and friends!
