Applesauce Cinnamon Ornaments

You need:

1 cup applesauce

1 1/2 cup cinnamon

cookie cutters

ribbon/ string

Mix applesauce and cinnamon to create the dough. Add more cinnamon if it is too wet or more applesauce if it is too dry.

Roll out like cookie dough on a flat surface, use cinnamon instead of flour to coat rolling pin and counter top to prevent sticking.

Cut out with cookie cutters and place on an un-greased baking sheet pan.

Poke a hole for the ribbon to go through with a toothpick.

Cook at 200 degrees for about an hour and a half, or until all moisture has evaporated.

Let them cool and tie on your ribbon or string through the holes to hang.


Paint In The Color

Since my new found love on Pinterest, I have found many…and I mean MANY, new craft ideas. At first I just repined all of the great ideas of things I wanted to do, without actually taking the initiative to do them, so the other day I decided to start.

Water Color Painted Onesies

Basically, I started out with a 3 pack of plain white onesies (about $7.00)….log sleeved, obviously, because it is November. I used blue painters’ tape to mark off my design. Oh, don’t forget to lay out some ole news paper underneath so that you don’t end up with a complete mess. I bought craft paint (.50cents each) in a couple different colors and thinned it out a bit with water. Make sure the bottle says permanent. I didn’t put anything in between the onesies to prevent transfer of paint to the other side, I just made sure to saturate the cloth enough to cover both sides. After taping out your pattern, use a paint brush to saturated the clothing with your choice of color. Its as easy as that! Let the paint dry completely and wash the clothing normally. I love the watercolor effect of the paint spreading underneath the taped lines.

I even made one for myself!
