Crafts don't necessarily include glue, scissors and paper. Crafts are anything you enjoy doing, be it cooking, sewing, knitting and even gardening. It is usually something that gives great pleasure, is relaxing and has to be fit into a time slot somewhere between homemaker and professional. Please enjoy some of the crafts we have chose for you from our kitchen.
6 Tbsp of applesauce (any kind will do as long as there are no lumps of apple in it)
9 Tbsp plus 2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground cloves
Extra cinnamon for rolling out dough
Ribbon in a variety of colors (1/16th or 1/8th inches wide)
Cookie cutters of various shapes and sizes
In a small bowl combine applesauce, cinnamon and cloves. Stir until blended. Work with your hands until mixture is smooth and clay like.
Use cinnamon to “flour” pastry cloth/counter and rolling pin. Roll dough out to about 1/4 inch thick.
Using cookie cutters cut out shapes. Continue to roll out dough and cut shapes until dough is used up.
With a small straw, make a hole in the shape big enough for the ribbon to go through. If you wish to make designs on your shapes, use a small skewer.
NOTE: If the hole for the ribbon is too big, the shape may be brittle in that area and break.
Move shapes to a cookie sheet using a spatula.
Heat oven to 120 F and bake for about 1 1/2 hours. Turn heat off. Leave shapes in the oven 5-6 hours or even overnight. Makes about twenty 2" shapes.
Thread ribbon through the holes.
NOTE: To dress up your shapes, use quick drying craft glue and add items such as small flowers, beads or other items.
Store in an airtight container with tissue paper or paper towel wrapped around each shape.
These wonderful smelling shapes can be:
WARNING: They should not be eaten.
- Tucked into your kitchen linen drawer
- Tied in amongst ribbons and bows on a gift
- Hung over a stove. The heat will bring out the cinnamon smell
- Used wherever you would like to have the smell of cinnamon
