I LOVE the smell of cinnamon! Each morning I add a dash of cinnamon to my coffee – yes, even in the summertime. I hear cinnamon is good for the heart, but it is also good for my soul. There is something about this scent that makes me feel at home. So, when a teacher friend showed me a ornament project she was making with her students that involved cinnamon – I was VERY interested. It was a messy craft with four-year olds, but the results are amazing.
So, I decided to try it and was surprised how much cinnamon you need (buy the big container at a box store like Costco), but it was worth it. I made these ornaments two years ago and I still hang them on my tree and kitchen cabinets knobs each Christmas. The sweet aroma of cinnamon is wonderful and gives a hint of baked goods around the house.
The recipe is easy, but it does take a few days to dry. Remember to turn the ornaments over once the top side seems dry. It’s important to dry the entire ornament for it to last and not get moldy.
Enjoy this fun project. Use your favorite cookie cutters or make shape templates with cardboard and cut out. Use a straw to create the hole to lace string or hook on wire.
