How to Make Salt Dough Ornaments

Run, run as fast as you can. You can’t catch me, I'm the gingerbread man! So gather your supplies and grab your doll, we have a holiday DIY project for you all! 


  • 1 cup cinnamon 
  • ¾ cup applesauce 
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp ground cloves
  • Gingerbread man cookie cutter 
  • One drinking straw 
  • Ribbon or twine
  • Baking Sheet 


  • Line your baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  • Preheat your oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients, mixing until well combined and a dough begins to form. Sprinkle your surface with extra cinnamon to avoid sticking. 
  • Place dough mixture onto the surface and knead the dough, then roll it into a ball. 
  • Roll out your dough flat (about ¼ inch thick).
  • Using your gingerbread men cookie cutters, cut out cinnamon shapes and lay them onto the parchment paper. 
  • Use a drinking straw and poke a hole in the ornament where you want the string to go through. Leave a little bit of space as a buffer so the ornament does not break. 
  • Bake in the oven for 2 hours. 
  • Let the ornament cool, add some ribbon or twine to your ornament, hang, and enjoy the festive aroma!
