Natural christmas garland
I wanted to decorate our garland with oranges and it just so happened, I had a dried out orange in my fridge and I’m so glad I didn’t toss it because now I had the perfect little project to try out!
Ya know I filmed it too!
These are pretty easy to make and i”d say the most difficult part was waiting for them to bake in the oven.
Slice the oranges
into 1″ inch thick slices, I’d recommend at least 2 large navels.
I’ve seen people using parchment paper OR metal racks, I went with metal, to help cut down on waste.
remove the extra juice by using a cloth or paper towel
Bake for 2hrs
bake them at 200 degrees for 2hrs, I could have baked them for another 20-30 mins, but I’m impatient and figured they’d continue to dry out after I hung them up anyway
let cool about 10- 15 mins
I used a bamboo skewer and white twine for a natural look.
I’m impressed, these turned out really cute and I’d make them again!
