DIY Cinnamon Ornaments – Video Tutorial!
Lucky you, I have a VIDEO tutorial – if you prefer the photo steps, that’s on down.
Combine all ingredients into plastic baggie. Seal bag. –
Mash contents until combined and dough forms. If too dry/crumbly, add more tacky glue or water. If too wet, add more cinnamon.
Roll out until about 1/4 inch thick.
Cut dough with cookie cutters.
Using a straw, punch out holes for hanging the ornaments. Let dry 24 hrs or bake on low (200 degrees) for 45 minutes.
Once dry, tie with twine to create a hanger.
Use dimensional paint to decorate ornaments. Let dry.
That’s all there is to it!
