Cinnamon Dough Ornaments

2 cups flour
1 cup salt
5 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 to 1 cup water

Combine dry ingredients in a bowl. Stir in water gradually to make dough. Knead for 5-10 minutes until smooth.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Roll out dough to desired thickness can range from 1/4 - 3/4 inch thick.Use cookie cutters to create shapes. Use a straw to make a hole so you can hang the ornament.

Baking for 45 minutes to 1 hour at 325°F. until dry. Let cool before you begin to decorate if desired. Paint with acrylic paints. Glue on fun eyes, buttons, ribbon, or any fun accessory. Coat with acrylic varnish when everything is dry, this is optional.

*My Notes:*
-The thicker the dough the longer it will take to bake.
-If dough sticks to your hands while kneading add more flour, if it crumbles, add water
-Kids love to help making these
-I like to attack these to Christmas presents during the holidays, not only do they look nice, but they smell really good!
