Homemade Christmas Ornaments

by - Friday, November 20, 2020

Have you ever just let a bag of cuties go bad without ever eating one or is it just me? Because I had been watching my orange slices for weeks now, I decided to make Christmas decorations using what I had around the house. This is the earliest I've started my Christmas decorations, but I figured that the way things have gone this year, we all need a little goodness. For me, that meant pulling put my Christmas boxes. Want to make your own? Here's what you will need:
  • To dry our oranges, first preheat your oven to 200 degrees. Dab any excess moisture, then slice and place slices directly on rack for 4 hours. Flip and check every 30 min. 
  • Gather your supplies. Using the floral wire, you will want to secure your dried eucalyptus to the cinnamon stick. If there is any excess wire, just pierce the dried orange slices so that they don't fall off your ornament. 
  • Pull your string through the wire and then you're done!
If you have any extra slices, like I did, try making your own garland. It's super cute and I love the way it looks with velvet ribbon and peach chiffon.
