Dried Orange Garland

Dried Orange Garland — If you’ve been on Pinterest, especially during the holiday season, you’ve seen this citrusy garland. Dried oranges are such a sweet and simple way to decorate the home during this time of year.

On garland, they can dress a mantel, a window sill, a railing or a Christmas tree. And on their own, they make for adorable little gift toppers or tree ornaments. Moral of the story: if you’ve got some dried orange slices lying around, you’ll definitely find a use for them!

The other day, I was inspired by The Ginger Home’s post to give this garland-making a try, and I enjoyed every bit of it! It’s currently hanging from the mantel and brings me joy each time I catch a glimpse. Once again, the world has a funny way of showing me how life truly is all about the little things.

Which reminds me of this quote by Robert Brault:

Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

It’s like the older I get, the more I realize how incredibly accurate this is. Ah, such a good quote!

And if you’re looking for a little thing to enjoy today, give this dried orange garland a try. It’s really simple to make.

Here’s how you do it:

  1. slice oranges (I used 3 navel oranges)
  2. place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper (I used The Ginger Home’s great tip of blotting them with paper towel to remove any excess moisture before popping them in the oven)
  3. bake until dry (on 250 degrees F. Keep an eye on them. I ended up keeping mine in for just under 3 hours before they were starting to burn.)
  4. string and decorate (the best part!)

You can find the step-by-step instructions on how to do it here.

Have a wonderful day! xx, Amanda
