I am itching to get my Christmas tree up, but I try to let Thanksgiving come before I get too carried away, that and the Mr. won’t allow it. Instead of setting up the tree, I’ve been working on the trimmings. I made a bunch of these adorable scented gingerbread men ornaments. They smell divine and look so perfect on a trimmed tree. Plus, I’m joining with a bunch of talent bloggers to bring you tree trimming ideas!
- 1 1/3 cup cinnamon
- 1 cup flour
- 1 1/4 cup applesauce
- gingerbread men cookie cutters (or any shape you’d like to use)
- white paint for embellishments
- wax paper
- String or ornament hooks
Start by mixing cinnamon, flour and applesauce until moistened.
Roll out between two sheets of wax paper.
Remove a layer of wax paper, cut out shapes with cookie cutters. Poke a hole in tope for string or hook.
Dry by laying on a paper bag, turning a few times a day for two to three days.
String up and trim the tree.
Now let’s give you some more inspiration!
