This DIY Cinnamon Apple Ornament is the perfect craft to make with your kids this holiday season! It’s easy, fun, and will look great on your Christmas tree. Plus it smells amazing!

What are Cinnamon Ornaments?

Cinnamon Apple Ornaments are a type of decoration that you can make and bake to hang up on your very own Christmas tree. These little triangle-shaped ornaments are a fun way to bake and bond with your family.

Important Supplies You Will Need:

  • Applesauce– It doesn’t matter what kind of apple sauce you use. This is the base of the ornament and will give such an amazing smell.
  • Cinnamon– You need a lot of cinnamon. This is the binder for the applesauce. When these two ingredients come together, look out for an incredible scent.
  • White Puff Paint– This is for painting the ornaments.

How to Make Cinnamon Ornaments

Step 1- Dough.

Put the apple sauce and cinnamon in a bowl and combine until it forms a dough. Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough to about 1/4″ thick and use some cinnamon to dust it to prevent stickiness.

Flattening the dough.

Step 2- Cutting.

Slice the prepared dough into triangles and set it on a baking sheet, then place it into the oven for 1 1/2 hours to bake at 200 degrees.

The dough cut into triangles.

Step 3- Decorating.

Use the white puff paint to decorate the triangles to look like trees and use twine to create a loop like an ornament on the back to hang it up.

Hang up and Enjoy!
