Supplies Needed to Make Cinnamon Ornaments
Do I Need to Bake the Ornaments?
No, you can let them air dry instead.
Make sure to place them on a cookie drying rack so the bottoms get exposed to air. Allow to air dry for 2-3 days until fully dry before decorating. If you would like to bake them, bake at a low temperature, like 200 degrees Fahrenheit for an hour. Baking them may cause the ornaments to curl a little bit so that is why we prefer to let them air dry. If you’re under a time crunch because you want to decorate them the same day, baking them is fine and will help speed up the process!
Do I Need to Put Glue in the Recipe?
We tested a batch with glue (we used mod podge) and a batch without.
We didn’t notice any difference between the 2 ornaments. For this reason, we do not think the glue is necessary. Also, if you do use glue – keep in mind you would not want to place this in your oven and you would only want to air dry this version.
How Do I Store Them?
Store in a cool, dry place. These ornaments will completely dry out and should not go moldy if kept in a cool, dry place. Protect them from damage as they can break if not handled gently.
