What is up you guys!

Welcome to day #7 of my 12 Days of Christmas series! I’ll be sharing a winter/Christmas inspired blog posts from December 14-25. Question of the day: What is your favorite Christmas dessert?

My mom and younger sisters were making these homemade ornaments earlier this month, and I wanted to share how to make them! And you guys. THE RECIPE ONLY HAS 2 INGREDIENTS! And you can make them what ever shape you would like. They also will make your house small amazing! Here we go»


  • 2 bottles (2.37 oz. each) Cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup applesauce


  • Cookie cutters
  • Drinking straw
  • Colorful ribbon


  1. Preheat oven to 200°F. Mix applesauce and cinnamon in small bowl until a smooth ball of dough is formed. (You may need use your hands to incorporate all of the cinnamon.) Using about 1/4 of the dough at a time, roll dough to 1/4-inch to 1/3-inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap. Peel off top sheet of plastic wrap. Cut dough into desired shapes with 2 to 3-inch cookie cutters. Make a hole at top of ornament with drinking straw or skewer. Place ornaments on baking sheet.
  2. Bake 2 1/2 hours. Cool ornaments on wire rack. (Or, to dry ornaments at room temperature, carefully place them on wire rack. Let stand 1 to 2 days or until thoroughly dry, turning occasionally.)
  3. Insert ribbon (we used twine) through holes and tie to hang.



If you want to add something to your Christmas tree, or are looking for a gift idea, this is a great recipe/DIY you should try! Making ornaments can be a fun thing to do with family or friends to make memories with. They smell SO good too! As always, thanks for visiting, and Merry Christmas!
