Cinnamon and Applesauce Ribbon Ornaments

When I was first introduced to The Ribbon Retreat, I had two little boys and so naturally didn’t think I had any need for ribbon, because ribbon is only used in hair bows right?!? And, my two little boys weren’t really excited about me putting bows in their hair. Well…was I ever wrong! Ribbon can be used in SO, SO, SO many more things than just hair bows and Havalah from Sisters, What! is showing us just how much a simple piece of ribbon can add to any craft…even these adorable Cinnamon and Applesauce Christmas Tree Ornaments! Enjoy!

This is Havalah from Sisters, What! I’m so excited to be here today to share with you my kid friendly Christmas Ornament: cinnamon applesauce ornaments. My little one has really wanted to use the Christmas cookie cutters everyday, so we took a break from cookies and made some cinnamon applesauce ornaments.

Captain Awesome insisted on glitter, lots of glitter, but they’re totally fun and he LOVES them.

DIY Cinnamon Applesauce Ornament

Ingredients and Supplies:
1/3 c. cinnamon
1 t. ground cloves
1 t. nutmeg
1/4 c. applesauce
2 t. craft glue

Holiday Ribbon Button
1. Combine spices and then add applesauce and craft glue. Knead until smooth. If it’s a little wet, add some flour to create a soft dough. Roll the dough between two pieces plastic wrap or wax paper until about 1/4″ thickness and then cut out ornaments with some fun Christmas cookie cutters. Don’t forget to puncture holes with straws.

2. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 200 degrees for 1 1/2 hours and then turn off oven and let them sit overnight or until they have hardened.

3. Add ribbon.

    We made the cinnamon ornaments last year, and they still had the delicious smell to them this year. They are one of my favorite DIY ornaments!
