How To Make Scented Holiday Ornaments

Hello everybody! With the holidays approaching us, I thought it would be a great idea to share a recipe/craft that is easy, fun, and affordable! Scented ornaments made from dough. This is a craft that the entire family can do together and kids love to make them! They smell wonderful and look beautiful on the Christmas tree. Years ago, my daughter and I made these together and she added them to gifts for teachers and the bus driver, and they all thought they were just so adorable. Not only are they simple to make, but they are keepsakes that are made with love! And please check out the video below of how to make your own Christmas cards, very beautiful and simple!!

Have a great day!!

Scented Holiday Ornaments


1 C. of cinnamon
1 Tbsp cloves
1 Tbsp. nutmeg
3/4 cup applesauce
2 Tbsp. white glue

In a medium bowl, combine the cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. Add the applesauce and white glue, and stir. Work the mixture with both hands for 2-3 minutes, or until dough is smooth and ingredients are completely mixed. Divide mixture into four portions. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut the dough with floured cookie cutters. (Be sure to make holes in the top if you would like to use them as ornaments.) Place cut outs on wire racks and allow them to dry at room temperature for several days. For a complete drying of ornaments, turn over once each day. Decorate with paint, glitter, etc.

Do not eat these ornaments - they are not edible!

Makes a great gift!!

Looks like a fun and easy project. Instructions I can follow, and a neat alternative to expensive, store-bought ornaments. Thanks! :)
