Making Christmas ornaments at school and at home was always a fun addition to the holiday season. I used to make the salt dough ornaments every year. I have never tried cinnamon or any other spices in the ornaments though. I am anxious to try these. I bet they will smell nice.

I just finished crocheting the Christmas tree decorations for my 40 surrogate children.....this year they are gingerbread men cookies. So as I was reading your recipe, I had the idea to soak my little guys in a cinnamon mixture or maybe drop cinnamon oil on them so they will smell nice too. Thanks for the idea............memawphd
