Applesauce Ornaments

Nothing is more heartfelt than a homemade gift.  Surprise your loved ones this Christmas with gorgeous applesauce ornaments that you can make yourself. 

These easy-to-make ornaments use only three ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen!

Hang on the tree or attach to a present for a special touch. The pleasing aroma of the cinnamon will last all season. We painted our ornaments with metallic gold acrylic paint and accented them with gold ribbon and brown satin bows.

    I love these! I would loved to make these with some of my Christmas molds. After you use the molds are the molds safe to use for other cookie recipes?ReplyCancel

      Hi Stephen,
      Yes, you can use the molds for cookies later, provided that you use non-toxic glue such as Elmers, and you wash the molds thoroughly with warm soapy water and a soft brush after your ornament project.ReplyCancel

    How do you store these ornaments? Will they keep from year to year without becoming “buggy”?ReplyCancel

      Hi Betsy! To keep your ornaments from year to year, carefully wrap your ornaments in tissue paper and store them in a zip-lock bag when not in use. Thanks!ReplyCancel
