Want your entire house bursting with the scent of Christmas goodness?
Then make these ornaments for your tree:
Mix equal parts cinnamon and applesauce (go to SAM'S and buy the bulk container of cinnamon).
Next add additional cinnamon until dough reaches a clay consistency.
Cut into shapes and bake on ungreased cookie sheets at 200 degrees for 2 hours.
Insert straw to make holes for ribbon.
Let dry on wire racks for several days.
When scent fades, add a drop of cinnamon oil to each ornament.
These would also make nice gift tags. Decorate or paint when completely dry. I like mine as is.
Oh, and I am ecstatic to report I am in the possession of mom's bubble lights. The wonderful, magical bubble lights I grew up with. They just take me back to Christmas as a kid, and that's what traditions are all about.
Thanks, mom for finding four strands for me in your basement. I love you.
