Make some decorations for your tree.
Why not make some decorations to give as gifts or to hang on your tree?
Here’s one easy suggestion:
CINNAMON CHRISTMAS ORNAMENTS
(This recipe is from cooks.com)
4 oz. ground cinnamon
1 tbsp. cloves
1 tbsp. nutmeg
2 tbsp. white school glue
3/4 c. applesauce
(Do NOT eat! Make sure if you have younger siblings to let them know!)
Makes about 12 large ornaments.
Any spices can be used, the spices are only used to give the ornaments a good smell. Combine spices in a bowl, mix together. Add applesauce and glue. Work with hands until smooth. Mixture will be like wet dough, if too juicy add a little more spice. Roll out to a 1/4 inch thickness. Cut with Christmas ornament indented cookie cutters. Cut a hole in upper edge of ornament with a drinking straw so ornament can be hung.
Place on rack to air dry for several days (3 or 4 days), turning until dry. Do not put in oven. Great gift toppers or ornaments.
