There is a random rule in our house which means not putting up the Christmas tree or any other decorations for that matter until 2 weeks before the big day. I'm not sure where it came from but the tree will be bought and decorated this weekend. In anticipation, the children wanted to add to the already very eclectic mash up of decorations with some homemade ones. We opted for cinnamon apple dough (not edible, its made with glue) which smells awesome and looks just like gingerbread dough. They were made with cookie cutters and stamps, baked for a few hours at 200F and decorated with a white sharpie and some red ribbon.
Recipe for the dough is here. Yep, that would be Martha again.
