My batch of applesauce cinnamon ornaments have dried and with food coloring I’ve died one side of all the hearts and while I was waiting for it to dry I wire wrapped one of the stars. It’s the first time I’ve done this. Usually I make a hole with a straw before it dries to put ribbon through but since I’ve been wire wrapping sea glass a lot lately I thought I’d try my applesauce cinnamon ornaments too.
Since I planned to wire wrap before I made this batch I made the ornaments pretty thick at 1/4″ wide.
Please excuse my red fingers in the photos, it’s from the red food coloring.
The wire I used is 24 ga craft wire that I bought at Ben Franklin.
Now I just wire away however I want. This is a simple design but it has to be wired in such a way so that the ornament can’t slip out. This is the back view after I finished wiring. See how I wired over the hook wire? That’s to keep the hook wire in place.
I can use this to hang on our Christmas tree or I can use it as a package ornament, or as an ornament on a flower or wreath arrangement.
