Cinnamon Bird Ornaments

This weekend we had another holiday get-together with awesome peeps. Chris & Rich played Nintendo, while two lovely ladies (Sarah and Debra) and I conquered Martha Stewart's Cinnamon Bird Ornaments. Most of the pictures were taken late at night, so they're not great. But the final products were impressive!Surprisingly, the ornaments are made from a mixture of cinnamon, glue, and applesauce. The dough is fairly difficult to work with, and has to sit an hour to solidify. Then, after the shapes are cut out, the ornaments are baked for 2 hours, to dry them out. Once dry, you simply apply glue & drop glitter or micro-beads on the glue. Sarah rocked the disco birds and Deb freestyled some of our leftover dough into a parrot, a peacock, and a chili all in all, we can say there was much kicking of Martha Stewart's ass.
