DIY DRIED ORANGE GARLAND

Last Christmas, I wanted to try the diy dried orange garland that was all over Instagram! I couldn’t try it out because we were living in our camper, which had no oven, while we built our barndominium! This year, I knew I would be trying it! Dried orange garland is super easy, plus budget friendly as well! check out my REEL on IG!

Today, I am joining a group of blogging friends for a fun Christmas DIY blog hop, hosted by Terrie, Decorate and More with Tip !

TIPS

Pat oranges dry before placing in oven. This helps to take out some of the moisture. I also opened my oven occassionally to let out some of the steam. Oranges are dried when the pulp is see-through. I held mine up to a window and if the pulp was see-though,  it was done!

I am so glad that I made dried orange garland this year! I love it’s simplicity during the Christmas season! You could even leave it up as winter decor through February! I may add this to my yearly traditions! Check out a few of my friends as we all have gotten together to share a Christmas DIY! I know you will love what they are sharing with you! If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
