i think we made these the first year we were married… gave them out as gifts a couple years later at our “birthday party for Jesus” open house.
they carry the aroma of everything “home” at the holidays. plus they’re just fun to make!
(this year the littles spread out on the floor and rolled them right there. they loved it! and of course, we had cinnamon-socks to contend with.)
little tip? you can find cinnamon at the dollar store. no lie – big bottle. i don’t know that it’s baker’s-quality (we’re spice snobs), but it is perfect for making large batches of these sweet ornaments.
you can dry them at room temperature for a couple days (and oh, they’ll fill up your home like a wintery candle), or you can gently dry them in a low-temperature oven.
they’re pretty hanging on the tree, and they mingle delightfully with the aroma of a fresh fir, if you have one.
we like to use them to decorate gifts!
