Dried Orange Slices for Holiday Crafting

Dried orange slices are so pretty, fragrant, eco-friendly and fun to make around the holidays. You can use them to adorn gifts, as part of bouquets to give as host gifts and garlands to decorate your home.

They are extremely simple to make! Simply thinly slice and spread out onto a baking sheet. Bake them at a very low temp (190-210 F) for several hours. Watch them closely when they are nearly dry as they will go from perfect to burned very quickly. Reduce the heat and open the oven door if you are worried about burning them.

We obviously thought the burned ones were still pretty enough to keep! I hope you enjoy this simple way to embrace the magic of the season. Have fun!
