DIY Cinnamon Hearts

DIY Cinnamon Hearts

These cinnamon heart shapes are a great holiday craft project. They can be used as a Valentine's day or as a Christmas craft project.

What you need

3/4 cup of applesauce
1 cup of cinnamon
1 tbs white glue


Using large bowl, place applesauce and glue into the bowl, mix in the cinnamon till a soft ball forms.

Cut out your heart shapes with cookie cutters and dry in an oven of 140 degrees until completely dry.

Turning over once.

If you intend on hanging your heart shape, then you will need to put a hole in it before baking, You can also thread a small piece of wire through before baking as this will not burn.

You can present these in a basket or tie to them to a gift as a tag.


  1. I made these for Christmas ornaments 26 yrs ago. I have kept them in an airtight glass jar and they still retain their smell.
