Nature-inspired holiday decor is my favorite. I prefer natural decorations over something plastic and artificial. Incorporating bits of the natural world inspires unique color schemes and gives your home a sense of calm. That’s why this easy-to-make dried orange garland is the perfect addition to your holiday trimming.
Step-by-Step Instructions for Making a Dried Orange Holiday Garland
- Cut oranges into 1/8 inch thick slices. Keep each slice the same thickness.
- Place oranges on parchment paper lined baking sheet.
- Pat the orange slices dry using paper towel before placing them in the oven.
- Bake you orange slices in a 200 deg F oven for 5-6 hours, flipping each slice over every 30 minutes.
- Once your orange slices are dry, string them onto jute or twine to create your garland.
