 Spice Ornaments

 Here's a fun craft to make with the kids this holiday season. They'll love helping you create these Spice Ornaments. It's an easy Christmas or winter holiday craft that will be used to hang and decorate your wonderful tree! Another benefit, they smell wonderful!
 Estimated Cost: $11-$20
Time to complete: In an evening
3/4 cup ground cinnamon
1 Tbls ground allspice
2 Tbls ground cloves
1 Tbls ground nutmeg
1 cup applesauce
 You will also need:
Christmas cookie cutters (or any cookie cutters you prefer)
wax paper
cookie racks
toothpick or drinking straw
In a large mixing bowl, combine spices.  Mix well and stir in applesauce.

On sheet of wax paper roll out dough into 1/4″ thickness.

Using cookie cutter, cut into desired shapes. Insert toothpick to make a hole for the ribbon.

Place on baking racks and let dry for 2-5 days. Thread desired ribbon through holes.  Yields 10-12 ornaments.
“I still have some from over 12 years ago and they’re still in great shape! I store them in bubble wrap with card board between each ornament”. M.O.
