Cinnamon Clay

I've been experimenting with homemade clays and the applesauce/cinnamon one has always intrigued me. It makes a nice product that smells wonderful. Usually it is made into Christmas ornaments but they don't show up on a tree; the brown of the clay is lost among the dark green of the tree. If you paint it, the paint covers the aroma and that's the whole point isn't it?

Materials
4 oz applesauce
jar of ground cinnamon
white glue
silver thread or cording

Tools
coffee filters
wooden skewer
candy molds
Pam
hot glue
silver leaf permanent marker (optional)

Place the applesauce into two coffee filters and gently squeeze to remove the liquid. You should manage to extract about 1/8 cup of water. The more water you remove, the less cinnamon you use and the quicker the drying time, but no need to go to extremes. Place in a small bowl and mix in about 1/3 of the jar of cinnamon and stir until you have an nice cookie-like dough. Squirt in a teaspoon or so of glue. Roll into small, medium and large balls and thread onto a wooden skewer. Suspend the skewer on a pan and allow the beads to air dry. Some recipes recommend that you put you items in a low oven but I found that that causes cracking. Move the beads every once in awhile so that they don't stick to the skewer.

Put the rest of the dough into two molds that match when placed back to back. Cut off a piece of skewer and press down on the back of each clay ornament to form a channel. Remove skewer piece and allow to dry. After a day or so, carefully remove ornament from mold, turn over and allow the front to dry.
When everything is hard and dry, line up two of the molded ornaments so that the channels match and glue together with white glue. Allow to set. Thread the beads and ornament on a silver cord or several pieces of silver embroidery floss. Fold over the threads at the top to form a loop. Glue just above the smallest bead with hot glue. Cut a number of threads or cords, twice as long as needed and fold them over. Glue each group of threads or cords just below the ornament with hot glue. Unravel a thread from the cord, or take one strand of floss and wrap around the base of the loop and the head of the cords at bottom of the ornament to form a tassel. If you wish, decorate the cinnamon beads and ornament with silver marker. You may have to repeat as the first coat may seep into the surface of the clay. The marker doesn't seal the clay so you don't lose the smell.
Place the loop over a hanger hook to give your clothes a nice smell.....
or drape over the finial of a lamp. The heat of the bulb will release the scent of cinnamon throughout a room. A word of warning though, you may find yourself with an unexplained craving for apple pie.
