Oh boy! Admittedly we love, love, love Star Wars around here but when it starts to take over our Christmas tree should we worry that there is a problem?! One cannot have too much Star Wars right?! Especially when this Chewbacca Cinnamon Ornament is sooooo cute!
I wasn’t joking when I said Star Wars is taking over our Christmas Tree! Well, at least these wookies are… if you have a Star Wars fan in the family then these are sure to be a hit. And honestly, they are beyond easy to make and create!
These are simply our take on traditional apple cinnamon gingerbread men… with a few added extras!
We started with a request from Isaiah to create our annual Apple Cinnamon Ornaments. We often make these and give them out as random acts of kindness throughout the holiday season. I was in the midst of baking so when he saw the gingerbread man cookie cutter he thought is would be fun to create a few bigger ornaments. My mind immediately went to Chewbacca and this ornament was born…
Cut and stretch the gingerbread men.
Add “fur” and a hole to the top for hanging. Bake.
Allow to cool completely.
Add paint details…
My friends on Facebook voted and this eyes/nose combo was the winning design. If you have a mini gingerbread cookie cutter is would be darling to create little Ewoks to go along with all of the Wookies!
Pretty fun right?! These were such a hit with my boys!! They can’t wait to give them out to friends, family and strangers alike during the holidays.
So, will you create a few of these Chewbacca Cinnamon Ornaments or would they take over your tree too??
