- Preheat oven to 200
- Next cut orange slices about an 1/8" thick or so. You'll want to make sure you cut more than you want just in case some fail (and eat some scraps as you go 'cause they're delicious and very good for you).
- Line cookie sheets or shallow pans with aluminum foil and place them in the oven
- Then start turning them over about every 30 minutes or so. It took me about 2 and a half hours to finish drying these, but everybody's ovens heat differently. Don't fret if a few of them stick to the foil; just gently peel them off and turn over. Keep a close eye on them towards the end 'cause they can start to brown easily.
That's all! You can use ribbon (or fabric scraps like I did) to tie them to the tree or string them up as a garland, place them in a nice looking wooden bowl or container filled with some awesome smelling, homemade potpourri, and I've also seen people put them on wreaths for some extra color or make wreaths specifically with them.
No matter how you use them, they just look great! Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for some more old-fashioned country Christmas ideas real soon.
How do y'all decorate for a simple rustic Christmas?
