How to Make Dried Orange Slice Garland

Orange slices make beautiful holiday decorations but are not just for Christmas and can be left up all winter for a sweet smell and a beautiful look! Today I'm going to show you how to make an easy to make orange slice garland.

This project began with the orange slices I made and scented with essential oils in an earlier post

Now that I have a bunch of beautiful scented orange slices, I'm going to put them together to make a garland.

Here are the materials you will need for this project:

The process is easy; slide a bead onto the twine then tie an orange slice with a knot. 

Add another bead, then another orange slice.

Keep this going until you get to the length you want.

The last step is to tie ribbons at each orange slice. 

I used a 1/2" black and white checked ribbon. 

Now you can hang your ribbon anywhere!

Here is another idea for the orange slices...

Hang just one on jute twine with a bead and make an ornament or a decoration for a gift.
