- Christmas tree biscuits
This recipe makes about a dozen non-edible ornaments for your tree which smell like Christmas and will keep for a long time. Get the whole family involved and have some fun! Even though they smell delicious, don't be tempted to eat them, they are purely for decoration. Use a straw or thick wooden skewer to pierce a hole in the dough so you can thread some ribbon for hanging them on your Christmas tree once they have completely dried out.

I KNEW this recipe would stain hands, countertop, rolling pin, etc... I was wrong. We were out of cloves, so I substituted a mix of allspice, mace, and ginger. Worked great and smelled delicious. The longer you knead the dough, the easier it was to work with. My kids and I (ages 5 & 7) made 29 ornament/gift ties from this recipe. Sand the edges after they dry to 'clean up' any rough spots.-05 Dec 2000
Very simple to make. I had to add a little bit more applesauce to get the right consistency. I would say don't bother adding the cloves or nutmeg - the cinnamon is so overwhelming that you don't really smell either one and it's a waste of expensive spices. I dried them in the oven and some cracked and others heaved a little. If you have the time to air dry them, do it that way. You'll be happier with the finished product.-19 Dec 2002
This is a wonderful recipe!! We substituted 1 TB allspice instead of the cloves and nutmeg and used the tiny cookie cutters, we ended up with 82 ornaments. Bamboo Skewers (not the pointed end) make good holes for hanging. Then we decorated them with acrylic paints. They make great gift tags or ornaments...and they made the house smell super!!-14 Nov 2002

Best Salt Dough Recipe for Ornaments and Keepsakes
Every year I love to have my son make salt dough ornaments and keepsakes to hang on the Christmas tree. It's so fun to pull them out every year and see how much his hand print has grown! You can also do footprint or fingerprint salt dough keepsakes! Can you believe that this salt dough recipe only uses 3 ingredients?! And, I bet you have the salt, flour, and water already in your kitchen! Easy peasy.
There are tons of techniques on how to make them like using a kabob stick to trace the handprint into the dough then use your fingers to pinch/smooth the edges. You can also leave space around them, just have the kids press their print into the dough then cut ½ inch around the handprints. Just like the santa ornament below.

Easy Cinnamon Ornaments
Easy Cinnamon Ornaments require just 2 ingredients to make and are SO much fun to decorate! A fun activity for kids, and sweet gift for loved ones.

I know I promised you a stocking stuffer gift guide this week but after seeing 10+ similar ones in my social media feeds last weekend I thought I’d switch gears and focus on holiday fun that’s simple, homemade, and inexpensive too – Easy Cinnamon Ornaments. (Though if you’re still looking for stocking stuffers, I’m obsessed with this, these, and oh my word these.)
Anyway, crank up Amy Grant’s Christmas album (love you to bits, Mariah, but Amy’s the true queen of Christmas!) grab yourself a hot cocoa, and let’s get to work on these GORGEOUS, fun, and easy cinnamon ornaments that are made with just two ingredients: applesauce and cinnamon. Did I mention how inexpensive they are?! This is a perfect holiday activity for little ones and/or a fun way to get into the holiday spirit. I love this handmade project!!
We finally put up our Christmas decorations this past weekend and the house is bright and festive. The kids are INTO it this year – you should have seen Gwen’s face when I plugged in the Christmas tree lights – and these are the times when having three little kids feels really, really fun. I know you know what I mean. Our holiday spirits were sent into overdrive when the scent of these cinnamon applesauce ornaments baking in the oven started wafting throughout the house. Absolutely incredible, and I still smell cinnamon every time I walk in the door, days after baking them.
As I mentioned, making cinnamon ornaments is a fabulous activity for kids this holiday season (perfect snow day / Christmas break idea, parents!) I made, cut out, and baked the dough one day, then the kids and I decorated them the next. I’d say kids three and older could definitely help make, roll, and cut the dough, though kids of any age can help with decorating. Lincoln took a look at the ones we hung on the tree and said, “Mom, they look SO good!”
(Cam was just there for the hot chocolate.)
The sky is the limit for decorating – it’s the most fun part. I had serious flashbacks to my sugar cookie baking days while decorating these. It felt so strange using puff paint and not icing, and remembering they were ornaments and not cookies! That said, these ornaments are not edible so be sure to remind little ones of that while you’re working on them. ) See below for the materials I used on each ornament.
Easy cinnamon ornaments would be great to give to Grandparents, teachers, or even to decorate a kids-only tree. Seriously they are just SO adorable!
How to Make Cinnamon Ornaments:
Start by adding 1 cup applesauce and 5oz cinnamon to a large bowl then mix with a fork until crumbly. Next, use your hands to knead the mixture into a dough ball. If it’s still crumbly, add more applesauce 1 Tablespoon at a time until the dough is soft but not sticky. It should resemble sugar cookie dough. Again, soft but not sticky!
Tip: Since these ornaments are not edible, purchase the cheapest cinnamon you can find. I use a store brand version which is $.99 per 2.5oz container (you’ll need two for this recipe.) I hear the dollar store has cheap cinnamon too.
Next, slightly flatten the dough ball (you can split it in half it it’s easier for you to work with one half at a time,) onto a sheet of saran wrap then cover with another sheet of saran wrap and roll 1/4″ thick. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes then transfer to a silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet. I prefer parchment paper but both work.
You can re-roll the scraps until all the dough is used up – I get about 14, 3-4″ ornaments out of each batch of Easy Cinnamon Ornaments.
Once the ornaments are on the baking sheet, use a straw to poke a hole for a ribbon then bake for two hours at 200 degrees, or until the ornaments are completely dried out, flipping the ornaments once. You’ll need to use a metal spatula to flip the ornaments if using a silpat, whereas you’ll be able to use your fingers if using parchment paper.
Lastly, I like to shut the oven OFF then let the ornaments sit inside and continue to dry out for another 30 minutes or so.
How to Decorate Cinnamon Ornaments:
After the cinnamon ornaments are completely cool, it’s time to decorate! You can use regular Elmer’s glue and glitter, regular or glitter puff paint (I bought at the craft store,) regular paint, or even Sharpies to decorate the cinnamon ornaments. Add embellishments like sequins, buttons, or even crushed candy canes with glue. The sky is the limit and this is the MOST fun part so let imaginations run wild. I have to say, glue + glitter looks the prettiest but you know…GLITTER. #eek Glitter puff paint is a great way to get a similar look.
Here’s how I decorated my cinnamon ornaments:
- Christmas Tree: Glue + green glitter, red and white puff paint for “ornaments”.
- Gingerbread Man:Puff paint.
- Snowman:Puff paint + sprinkling of iridescent glitter.
- Snowflake: Glue + silver glitter.
- Candy Cane: Red and white puff paint.
- Red and Blue Circles: Glue + red and blue glitter.
How Long Do Cinnamon Ornaments Last?
Cinnamon ornaments should last indefinitely if wrapped in tissue paper between seasons. They’re not indestructible but they’re also not crumbly nor fragile. I hope you have a BLAST making this fun holiday project this year – Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
