You need: 1 1/2 cups ground cinnamon 1 cup applesauce 1/3 cup white school glue Rolling pin Cookie cutters - various types Knife Straw Cooling rack Ribbon Optional - puffy paints 1.Mix cinnamon, applesauce, and glue together in a bowl. 2.Remove from the bowl and knead the mixture until it turns into a firm clay. 3.Let sit for about 30 minutes. 4.Clay is best used at room temp. you may need to dust your rolling pin, hands or working surface with cinnamon, or use wax paper as a working surface. 5.Roll out clay with a rolling pin to approx. 1/8 of an inch thick. 6.Use cutters to cut out desired shapes. 7.If you are going to hang, use a straw to cut out a hole near the top of the shape. 8.Place shapes on a non stick cooling rack or wax paper but you'll need to keep an eye on them and turn them over occasionally so that they dry evenly and dry flat. 9.Dry shapes for approx. 5 days. 10.When dry you may put a ribbon through the hole for hanging on the tree or adding to a package. 11.Optional: you may add puffy paint to decorate your shapes. I have made many of these ornaments over the years.They are so easy & make the house smell very good!
