Cinnamon Bird Ornaments

How many can you identify 1-12? (answers next time!)

1/2 pound cinnamon 
17 oz. applesauce 
1 oz. Elmer's glue
Place cinnamon in large bowl. Add glue and gradually add enough applesauce to get a slightly firm dough. Roll out to 3/8" to 1/2". Cut out with cookie cutters. Use a straw to make a hole in top of ornament for ribbon. Let dry at room temperature or bake at 200 degrees for 1 hour and then let dry completely.
(I actually used a recipe from HERE, but cut it in half and even so it made enough dough for a million ornaments, so this is a quarter of the recipe I used.)


  1. Oh boy, a test! 1. Oregon junco. 2.CB Chickadee. 3. BC Chickadee. 4. Spotted Towhee. 5. Red-winged BLackbird. 6. GC Kinglet? 7. WC Sparrow. 8. Ruby-crowned Kinglet? 9. Yellowthroat. 10. RB Nuthatch? 11. Umm... Townsnend's Warbler Oriole hybrid. 12. Snowy Owl.

    These are pretty cute!

  2. Well I guess you're the only one that wants to play my little game! Snowy Owl!? What are you drinking/smoking?! You got them all right and I won't take the Townsend's/Oriole Hybrid personally. My painting skills are developing. It is a Townsend's and the last one is a Wilson's Warbler. I have been searching the web for other cookie cutters. There is a "seagull", owl, cardinal, but no other birds. I really wanted a Northern Shrike :)

  3. Ooh a shrike would be cool, guess you'll have to trace one out yourself! I have a gull cookie cutter but its in flight and not that recognizable.

  4. i love them all and want to eat them.
