Easy Cinnamon Christmas Ornaments

2 Comments

Creating Easy Cinnamon Christmas Ornaments with kids is fun and easy when you use any holiday cookie cutters you have on hand. Christmas ornament ideas don't get much more creative than this. Best of all, they smell great so your home will be filled with Christmas cheer. It'll be hard resisting the urge to eat these ornaments, but once you see how great they look on your tree, you'll want to display them instead. DIY Christmas ornaments often become keepsakes, so save this project for next year (and many more years to come).

  2. Place wax paper down onto work surface.
     
  3. Roll one quarter of dough between two pieces of wax paper until about ¼” thick.
     
  4. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters, etc.
     
  5. Cut holes for hanging using straw or similar object.

Made these when my grandson was about 3 years old. He is now 18 and I still hang them on my tree. You can still smell the cinn. but it is starting to fade. Can't believe they still have the cinn. smell after all these years.

Have made these for years and have never thought of using paint on them. I usually add statis or baby's breath and ribbon to decorate mine. I have also used heart shapes and then tied them together with ribbon to mimic the attached candles and wooden ornaments popular in the country phaze in the 90s (I stiil have mine and am not letting them go!).
