One of my new years resolutions is to keep up with my blog...promise.

I wanted to share my german twig tree decorating thus far, I used cinnamon sticks, orange slices, apple slices, sprigs of sweet annie and cinnamon star ornaments.

The cinnamon ornies are so easy to make if you use a dehydrater to finish them.
I use a small jar of applesauce and 5-6 jars of .50 cent cinnamons from the dollar store.Mix together and roll out dough with a rolling pin, use cookie cutters for shapes and a tootpick for a hole, tranfer with a turner to the dehydrator and it usually takes 8-14 hours to dry .Put a string thru or a wire hook (being careful not to break them)and hand and sniff!
