Make your own Orange Garland


This is a gorgeous DIY that's not only easy to make but gives your home a lovely subtle orange smell as well, and chances are you already have all the materials at home.


You will need: 

  • 4-5 oranges

  • Serrated knife

  • Baking paper

  • Oven tray

  • Twine or string

  • Cellotape

  • Large needle (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 120 degrees C.

  2. Slice oranges to approx. 5mm thick using a serrated knife and place slices on the baking paper.

  3. Place on an oven tray and bake for 2-3 hours. Turn them over after 1.5 hours – this will help keep then flat and dry evenly too.  Cooking them slowly draws out the moisture without burning them.

      4. Allow slices to cool.

      5. Thread string/twine through two parts of the orange flesh (not the skin). Wrapping tape around the end of the string makes it stiffer and easier to thread through the slices. Or use a large needle for craft

     6. Once all the slices are threaded on, make a double knot at each end to hang from.

You’re done!  Hang your garland over a mantelpiece, shelf, on the Christmas tree or across a window frame.
