Cinnamon Salt Ornaments

5 from 4 reviews

These Cinnamon Salt Ornaments are great as homemade gifts. They’re quick & easy to make, and so much fun for kids to make too!  This batch of dough was enough for my 3 kids to make about 10 ornaments each.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 12 tbsp cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees F.
  2. Combine all ingredients, roll into a ball of dough.
  3. Then roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick.
  4. Cut out the dough into shapes using cookie cutters. Keep rolling out the small scraps of dough and make ornaments until the dough is all gone.
  5. Using a toothpick, make a hole somewhere on the ornament so it can be hung.
  6. Bake at 250 degrees for about 2 hours, or let air dry. See notes.
  7. Run a piece of ribbon or twine through the hole and hang!


** TIP: I noticed when I baked these that the bottom of the ornaments were a much nicer darker colour than the tops after baking. Next time I would place the ornaments face down on the cookie sheet for baking.**
