No-Bake Cinnamon Dough Ornament Recipe

1/4 cup white school glue - like Elmer's

3. Knead dough for 5-10 minutes, place in bowl, cover with plastic wrap so it doesn't dry out, and let sit for 30-45 minutes
4. Knead dough again until smooth
5. Roll out dough between waxed paper until thickness is 1/8 to 1/4 inch
Use cookie cutters to create teddy bears, gingerbread people, gingerbread house panels, and holiday shapes. Use a straw to make a hole so you can hang the ornament.
Place ornaments on wax paper for drying. Drying will take 3-5 days, turn ornaments over a few times a day in order for them to dry flat and prevent curling of the edges. Ornaments will shrink a little while drying.
