I make these every 2 yrs to hang on garland, gifts, the tree and the smell lasts forever. What holds them together is a 1tsp of elmers glue..
***They are NON EDIBLE! But the glue isn't dangerous so if any lil ones take a bite out of curiousity. no worries!
1/4 cup applesauce 1/4 cup cinnamon 1 Tsp. white glue
Pour all ingredients in a plastic zip bag.
seal the bag and knead until a dough is formed
**(if dough is too wet and sticky add a little more cinnamon)
Roll dough out on a cutting board or counter sprinkled with cinnamon (to prevent sticking.)
Cut shapes with cookie cutters and make hanging holes using a drinking straw.
Let ornaments air dry a few days in a warm dry area,
It's important to be sure that you flip them over a few times each day to ensure they lay flat.
When dry, string with ribbon and hang.
You can also decorate with glitter glue and paint.
