  • Step 1

    Mix the spices and the applesauce in a large bowl. The mixture will be dark brown and thick. Side note: it sometimes helps if you let the applesauce drain for at least a few hours before you begin the project, so that your ornaments dry faster.

  • Step 2

    Roll out the mixture onto your wax paper, as you would cookie dough, until it is approximately 3/4 of an inch thick.

  • Step 3

    Use whatever cookie cutter you like and cut out shapes. Use a spatula to put your shapes onto another piece of wax paper for drying.

  • Step 4

    While they are still moist, use the drinking straw to poke holes at the top of each shape for hanging later.

  • Step 5

    Allow to dry for one week- make sure they are kept from children, as they do tend to look and smell like cookies.

  • Step 6

    String ribbon through the holes and decorate as you wish with glitter, paint, etc. Then hang and enjoy!
