Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments – A Handmade Christmas

Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments are one of the first crafts I ever made. When Doug and I first married, over 20 years ago, we made many of our tree ornaments. One of the handmade ornaments that year was a batch of these Cinnamon Applesauce ones.

A few years ago I made these and decorated them using white markers. You can paint them and also leave them plain. It really depends on the kind of look you are going for.  

PETS: These ornaments smell fabulous, which is great for us humans, but if you have a dog who likes human food, you may want to keep a close eye on them or put these out of their reach.

  • cup  ground cinnamon
  • 3/4  cup  applesauce
  • tablespoons  basic white glue
  • tablespoon  ground nutmeg or cloves


  • Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Use a mixer or spatula. Make sure all the cinnamon is absorbed into the applesauce.
  • Once dough is well combined, knead it several times, pressing the dough firmly into a ball.
  • Sprinkle some cinnamon on a smooth surface. Using a rolling pin, begin to roll out the dough. Turn the dough a few times while rolling, adding more cinnamon to prevent sticking.
  • Roll to about 1/4 inch thick and using cookie cutters cut out the desired shapes.L Remember to add a hole for hanging.
  • Lay the ornaments on a cookie sheet covered with wax or parchment paper. Using a skewer or small straw, make a hole in the top of each ornament.
  • Ornaments should dry in 24 to 48 hours. It helps to turn them occasionally so they dry evenly.
  • String with a piece of twine to hang.
