I love Christmas DIYs and ones that Macy can help me with too! She loved passing me the orange slices to string on and then would try to put her own snack of mandarin oranges on the string haha. She tries! My house now smells like lovely orange and yours can too with this easy garland DIY.
-2 large navel oranges
-1/2 cup of white sugar
-parchment paper and a baking sheet
Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Top with orange slices in a single layer, and generously dust with sugar. Bake until the peels are dry and the flesh is translucent, about 2 1/2 -3 hours.
Once they are done just string them along some twine or baking string and hang on your wall. They also look pretty across a window and the sun shines through the oranges giving a stained glass effect. I will be making more to hang on the Christmas tree! Also if you embed a clove in the centre of each slice before you bake them that creates a lovely aroma as well.
I love getting an early start on Christmas it’s my fav season. Happy decorating!
