Easy to Make Scented Ornaments

I learned how to make scented ornaments when my son was little.  The recipe is super simple.

Made these as a kid... I'd love to make them with the girls!



Place 1 cup of cinnamon and 1 cup of apple sauce (and glitter if you want them to sparkle) in a ziploc baggie and smush together until combined.

Refrigerate for an hour.

Remove mixture from bag and roll on wax paper

Using cookie cutters, cut into shapes

Poke a hole in top of each ornament for hanging

Leave ornaments on the wax paper and put them in a safe spot to air dry completely.  This will take a few days.


Once dried, place ornaments on a pretty ribbon and hang them on your tree, in your car, or give them as gifts to teachers or friends.  The scent lasts a long time.  These are NOT edible.

This is a fun project to make with your children.
