cinnamon ornaments, mom's

I made a version of these wonderful ornaments with Elmer's glue. It never seemed to harden, and was not something that could be eaten should my dogs go after them...Mom had a recipe that didn't include the glue, and with the extra bonus of smelling wonderful even longer than mine. Make these this year with your favorite little person, and hang them together on your family tree. Just like I remember doing with Mom.
