28 Days of Doing - The Pinterest Challenge
In an attempt to DO more than PIN, I've challenged myself to 28 days of doing. I'm tackling 28 projects found on Pinterest in 28 days. You can see the entire collection of pins here.

Today's Pin: Easy Cinnamon Ornaments

The Pin's Source: Martha Stewart

Cost:
  • $2.79 for a large jar of cinnamon
  • the applesauce and glue I had on hand

Hours: 1 day and 4 hours

Modifications: I followed the recipe but my dough never got past crumbly so I doubled the amount of applesauce. Worked like a charm.

Notable Comments: This project took a lot of babysitting. After I cut out the shapes, I left them on a cooling rack like the recipe instructed. It said to flip them every six hours but I noticed mine needed flipping every two (they were on their own from 11PM-8AM). But in the end, they were simple to make and I was very satisfied with the way the gingerbread man garland turned out.

I would make these again closer to Christmas, the smell of the cinnamon was very festive. Only, don't you find you have less time closer to Christmas? So I just don't know how reasonable it is to believe I will make them again. They sure are cute though!
