Dried ORANGE PEEL decor

We had planned to do those last year, but we never found the time…

To make full use of the fruits, juice them first for some fabulous refreshment then simply do not throw away the rinds. They are already halved so you only have to clean them.

Use a knife or a pair of scissors as shown to make the orange flowers.

Press them down with heavy objects and put them to dry on the radiator or in a low oven. If they are not pressed, they will curl and not be as beautiful.

Save some of the rinds uncut – just clean them and make a hole in the middle so you can thread a ribbon there after drying.

After your orange flowers and circles are ready, use your imagination to make some fabulous Christmas decorations. We had some pine cones and wooden beads so we made Christmas tree ornaments and an aromatic front door hanger.
