While looking on pinterest, I found a great pin for making gingerbread ornaments from The Culinary Enthusiast. Since we decided to change up our Christmas tree some this year, Jennifer and I made lots of these to decorate the tree.
The steps are very simple. All that you need is 3/4 cups cinnamon, 3/4 cups unsweetened apple sauce, and 2 tablespoons glue. Stop by The Culinary Enthusiast for more detailed directions.
Here's what we did:
Roll out and cut out
Poke hole and let dry (several days)
Insert string and hang from tree
Since you have to wait several days, it may be a bit late to make these since Christmas is in seven days. However, these would make nice Christmas presents as well, and if you made them soon, they would still have plenty of time to dry before Christmas. Plus, the ornaments will make your house smell wonderful while they are drying.
Hope that you enjoyed this!
