Looking for a last minute craft idea to do with the kids next week? I have a solution. Make these cinnamon ornaments and your house will smell amazing! I used Christmas Spirit essential oil, but you could use cinnamon, clove, orange, or anything else you would like.
Carsyn absolutely loves anything that flies through the air. If he even hears a slight noise of something flying his eyes are turned to the sky. One of his favorite movies is Planes. Don’t tell him but he is getting Planes Fire & Rescue for Christmas. He will also be receiving these adorable Planes Fire & Rescue toys to go with the movie.
The Disney Planes Fire & Rescue Die-Cast Vehicles are on Rollback at Walmart along with the Disney Planes Flight to the Finish Speedway and the Disney Planes Fire & Rescue Deluxe Talking Vehicles.
I shared how I made the cinnamon ornaments below. The original recipe I found called for 2 cups cinnamon 2 cups applesauce but it was waayyy too sticky. I ended up added twice as much cinnamon and some flour. I did measure the applesauce with a dry measuring cup. Maybe that is why it was sticky.
Cinnamon Ornament Directions
I thought I would share step by step photos of the process. Once I figured out a good ratio for everything I laid the dough out on wax paper and sprinkled with flour. Note: You could use cinnamon so that your ornaments aren’t white, but I planned to add glitter to these so I wasn’t too worried.
Take a straw and poke a hole in the ornament towards the top. Just don’t get too close to the edge.
Place them on a cookie sheet covered with parchment or wax paper. Bake them at 200 for one hour, flip, then continue baking for one more hour. Or until they are dry and hard.
Transfer to a cooling rack. Once they are cooled the kids can get crafty. They could paint them, or add different colors of glitter, or draw lines with the glue and then sprinkle the glitter on. I went simple and covered the whole plane with craft glue.
Next sprinkle with glitter.
Let that dry for about 10 minutes, then add another layer of craft glue. This will seal in the glitter.
Let that dry completely. Now if you want you can add extra oil to the back of the ornament. Next year you can refresh your ornaments by adding fresh oil on the back.
Tie a ribbon on and you are done!
