I made these years ago and I hang them on my tree every year. It has been years and they still have a pretty strong scent. They are made from Cinnamon and Applesauce! Go HERE to find the recipe. The bows were put on with a glue dot.
I had an initial problem with the dog eating them but once he got a taste he stopped. Just watch for the hooks. I'm lucky because Max doesn't eat foreign objects. He spits them out.
