WHAT YOU’LL NEED
- 4-6 Oranges
- Cotton string or twine
- Needle with appropriately sized eye
- Parchment paper
- Sharp knife
- Baking sheet
Preheat your oven to 170 degrees. Rinse your oranges and cut them into even ⅛” slices. After they’re sliced, pat them dry on both sides and neatly line them on a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet. Bake for 2-3 hours, or until they are fully desiccated, with a light golden color, and the edges are slightly curled. Let them cool, and using your needle and preferred thread, gently poke a hole and weave your thread through until you have the desired length of garland. You can also add additional elements like greenery, cinnamon sticks, and hearty herbs.
HOW TO DECORATE WITH GARLAND
Hang them up on your wall to frame a room or existing art, or around a door frame to add a festive touch.
