Dried Orange Slices Ideas

Many of you adore our How to Dry Orange Slices tutorial. Many of you have beena sking for some Dried Orange Slices Ideas.

So I thought I would recap on some of the ideas shared in the past. My favourite, I think are Dried Orange Garland DIYs. But more to those next!

There are many ways to use Dried Orange Slices at Christmas

The majority of Dried Orange slice decorations, simply use the orange as is (we just like them as simple orange ornaments). However, they look fantastic combined with other dried citrus fruit, clovesm cinnamon sticks and pinecones. Here are some of our favourite ideas as seen in the image above . Enjoy!!
