Cinnamon & Apple Sauce Craft

Loading image. Please wait

An fun and easy craft. Tested in our Tree Top kitchen.
(Note: these are not edible; for decoration only.)


Description: Kids love to make ornaments. Whether decorated with glitter or simply tied with a ribbon, this wonderful smelling craft can be used as a gift tag, keepsake, ornament or air freshener.


Servings: Makes 16 to 20 ornaments.
  • 2 cups Tree Top or Seneca Apple Sauce

  • 2 cups Cinnamon

  • Pencil (to make hole for ribbon)

  • Cookie cutters

  • Ribbon


Mix together cinnamon and apple sauce until it makes a dough. The dough will be brown in color and be relatively thick like regular cookie dough.

Lightly sprinkle a flat surface with cinnamon to prevent dough from sticking. Knead dough until you have a firm, pasty consistency.

Roll out your dough to at least 3/8 inch thickness.

Cut out shapes with cookie cutters.

With a pencil end, poke a hole near the top of each shape. (Make sure the hole is not too close to the edge, and is large enough to insert a ribbon when dry.)

Drying: Bake on baking sheet in 150°F oven for 3-5 hours, or air dry for 2 days. When air-drying, be sure to turn over a few times every day for a more even finish.

Decorate when dry. Add a decorative ribbon for hanging.


Serving Suggestions

These smell wonderful, but make sure your kids don’t eat them.

STORING: Store in an airtight plastic bag or container to use next holiday season.

OTHER DECORATING TIPS: When dry, use acrylic paint to color or sprinkle with glue & glitter for a sparkle or glue a ribbon around the edge.

TIPS & NOTES: A thicker ornament will be less apt to break. Once dry, you can lightly sand the edges for a smoother finish.

ALTERNATIVE USES: Tie to a present in addition to gift tag. Hang in car or on a window sill as a wonderful smelling air freshener. Place in a wreath or on garland.
