One of my very favorite ornament recipes! I loved using my really miniature cutters for these ornaments and also made small refrigerator magnets. They look and smell great. I have used the ornaments tied with embroidery floss on miniature Christmas trees that I "planted" in china demitasse cups. They store wonderfully. I just brought out one made at least 15 years ago and it is still in perfect condition.

These are extremely easy to make and the results are so cute and Christmasy!

Mix equal parts of applesauce and cinnamon. (1 cup applesauce/1 cup cinnamon) Mix until a soft and perhaps sticky dough is formed.

Roll the dough out or press with hands until it is approximately 1/4 inch thick. Using your favorite Christmas cookie cutters, cut out as many shapes as possible and place them on a wax paper lined cookie sheet. Use a straw to cut out holes in the ornaments.

Let your ornaments set in a dry place for 2-3 days until they are dry and hard. Caution: They will still be fragile, so you should be gentle with them. Cut ribbon to the lengths you want and tie through the holes in the ornaments.


Your ornaments can be used for your tree or tied to the top of Christmas gifts. The scent should last up to 3 years!

Here are some of the ornaments I made. I used 2 cups cinnamon and 2 cups applesauce and I ended up with about 33 ornaments. I also added some pumpkin pie spice and nutmeg to enhance the scent. Instead of ribbons I used crochet thread and chain stitched my "ribbons."

Several years ago my friend and I made a lot of these. In order to strengthen them, we added a little bit of Elmer's glue. I don't remember how much we used but I do know that it was not a lot. Good Luck!! (12/14/2007)
