My "kitchen tree" (a 30" tall tree) has many cinnamon "gingerbread men" (and ladies) along with other kitchen-related ornaments. We used this recipe, and placed whole cloves for eyes and buttons before baking. Once dried, we decorated them with white fabric paint to outline them, give them pants, fancy skirts, etc. They get stored in between layers of tissue paper in a cookie tin, and they've held up for several years, and still have a good amount of scent left in them.

That's a great idea with using the fabric paint and the cloves! The paint that comes in the little squirt bottles would look just like icing... :-)

It does. It makes them less non-toxic, but it worked like a charm ;o)

Thanks!

I just got out the cinnamon ornaments I made last year, opened the tin, and nearly swooned from the lovely cinnamon scent... it does last!

Jill, great idea! I didn't do it last year, but I'll have to try it this year. Reading about Terry's experience made me want to do it...and with my DD coming home for Christmas this would be such fun!

You'll have fun, I know... and unlike cut-out cookies, these ornaments won't disappear within days. :-)

My mom still has the cinnamon ornaments we made 22 years ago. My stepdaughter made one with black pepper when we ran out of cinnamon. She called it "The Sneezer". : - )
A very worthwhile project. Thanks for the reminder!

LOL I guess "The Sneezer" is rather a different color, also.

22 years! They are good keepers. :-)
