Cinnamon Ornaments

A few years ago, Maddie came home from school with a little package for me..she was so excited. It was one of those "School Creations." She said that I could open it right away or I could wait until Christmas morning. We discussed it..and decided together that all gifts should wait until Christmas morning.

Every year when I open the Christmas Ornament container the smell of cinnamon greets me and I am reminded of the big smile she had on her face that day. How proudly she presented her gift,  the ornament that she made especially for me.

I have many ornaments, and I mean many..enough to decorate several trees. I collect Christmas Ornaments..however this one holds a very special place in my heart and upon the tree.

Perhaps you would like to make a memory for your tree.

Maddie’s Cinnamon Christmas Ornaments

Mix the dry ingredients, add the wet ingredients..kneed for a few minutes. Roll out to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Cut out your shapes with a cookie cutter. Use a straw to poke a hole through the top of the cutout. Air dry for several days turning occasionally. Paint with  glitter glue..attach a length of ribbon for a hanger:)

    Beautiful. Cinnamon ornaments are the best! We used to make those every year when I did daycare at home, but the recipe varied just a little, I think. No matter, they spiced up my home and that of all the families I cared for. I should make some for old times sake. :-)
