|On our tree now, these are two years old!|
"It's basically 1 part liquid to 1 part powder. 7oz applesauce 1oz non toxic glue and then the powder can be any mix of ground spices and flour. I did about half and half cinnamon and pumpkin spice- then the remaining 4oz flour.
For non bake I was told you can either then mix and chill overnight in the frig and then roll the dough out and cut it up with a normal cookie cutter and let set out until it dries (takes a few days). for baking don't chill immediatly, put in silicon molds (Christmas ones- gingerbread men, trees & stockings and hearts and stars) and bake at 275-300 degrees for 3 hours and let cool overnight. either way you want the mixture to be about normal cookie thickness. Don't forget to make holes in them before baking or letting set out to dry =)"
I bought several of those big dollar store world spice ground cinnamon bottles to make these; because like this year, the ornaments we made two years ago were also what the boys gave as gifts.
For the set we kept, pictured above, the morning after they cooled I sprayed them with gold glitter spray let dry. Once dried I tied ribbon through the holes and we hung them on the tree.

I still love these ornaments, they have held up really well and still love lovely on the tree.
