Scented Dough Christmas Ornaments using Mason Jar Rings

It's beginning to smell a lot like Christmas! Yeah, you know it's Christmas time when a cloud of cinnamon scent hits you in the face as you stroll into the craft store. We created the perfect DIY Christmas Ornament tutorial for crafty canners. This scented glue dough recipe combines the traditional holiday scent and mason jar rings. It's a great way to use rusty canning rings you may have laying around. And it's also a perfect craft to make with kids. Just mix the dough and mold it around canning rings to create scented wreath ornaments. These scented Christmas ornaments make great holiday gifts. Decorate your Christmas tree or garland with these festive-scented ornaments too.

Scented Dough Christmas Ornaments


  • Regular or wide mouth canning jar rings
  • 2 tablespoons white school glue
  • 1 cup of ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cloves
  • 1 tablespoon of nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • Whole cloves
  • Ribbon

Scented Dough Christmas Ornaments


  • Mix cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Stir in applesauce and glue.
  • Mix and knead for 2-3 minutes until dough is smooth. If dough is too sticky, add more cinnamon. If dough is too dry, add a little water.
  • Mold the dough mixture around the canning rings.
  • Insert whole cloves for decoration. 
  • Place ornaments on a wire rack to dry at room temperature. Turn once a day for even drying. Drying will take several days.
  • Once dry, decorate with ribbon or paint some holly berries.
  • Recipe makes about 8 ornaments depending on what size canning rings you use.
  • PLEASE NOTE: These ornaments are NOT edible. Store finished ornaments in a dry location free of excess humidity and cold.

Printable Seed Saver Packs

If you're a gardener, you may have saved some of your seeds throughout the years. Saving seeds will save you money and make you more self sufficient. The practice is also a great way to connect to your community of fellow gardeners when you share the seeds.

If you’re new to saving seeds, check out Seed Savers Exchange. They have a wealth of knowledge on the best practices and techniques to get started. You can also join their Exchange to swap seeds with other members. Once you start saving seed, you’ll appreciate the tradition of handing down and trading seed varieties.

We designed three FREE Printable Seed Saver Packets for our gardening friends. Our free seed saver packs are great for saving seeds from your garden. Store seeds for yourself or use them for gift-giving seeds to your friends. Just print, cut, fold, and glue the seed packets to store your vegetable, fruit, or flower seeds. We hope you enjoy using these free packets. And PLEASE, share these with your fellow gardeners and seed savers.
