What are cinnamon applesauce ornaments?
As the name suggests, they’re just ornaments using only applesauce and cinnamon for the dough! I decided to use cinnamon from the Dollar Tree for this recipe to keep it ultra frugal, and I’m so happy I gave it a try! You can’t beat the price, but of course, you can use any ground cinnamon. I was also able to snag my puffy paint from Walmart for less than $2!
Although there are ways to preserve these perishable ornaments, the scent may be lost which is what sets them apart from other faux cookie ornaments. If you do want to preserve them, simply preserve them with a spritz of clear coat spray! I have mine from when I first made this Christmas craft in 2014 and they STILL have the cinnamon scent to them.
If you tie these cinnamon applesauce ornaments together, you can even turn them into a cute Christmas garland instead of using them for ornaments.

PS, if you’re wondering if you can eat these, something tells me they won’t taste the best. 🤣 Either way, this is a great way to get that delicious Christmas scent to fill your home without worrying about eating one too many real cookie treats!
