Welcome to Day 1 of “12 DIY of Christmas”. I am very excited to do this this year! I have been so busy making all the DIYS for you I haven’t had much time to post anything else. Each day will be a new project for the season that you can work on! Some of them are super easy and quick, while others require a bit more patience and time, but all of them are so adorable and are up around my house! Let me know if you try any of them out, I would love to see them! Are you ready? Let’s go!
DAY 1: Orange Garland
This project is a great addition to your tree, or forget stringing them and add them to pine and pinecones for a smelly potpourri. The smell is amazing and you will be loving them throughout the whole holiday season!
What You Need:
-Oranges (sliced about 1/4″ thick)
– Bakers Twine
What To Do:
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees farenheit
2. Slice oranges 1/4″ thick and blot with paper towel to get most of the moisture out.
3. Place oranges on a piece of parchment paper on a baking tray and bake for approx 2 hours or until dried and starting to brown. Rotate and flip them throughout the bake.
4. Remove from oven and once cooled, use the bakers twine and needle to thread them onto a garland.
