Last week the kids were sick and I literally stuffed them with oranges and clementines, to get some extra vitamin C into them.
The same day I had seen a beautiful orange peel garland some were on Instagram, so I decided not to just throw the peels away, but insted to reuse them for a little Christmas fun.
Here is what to do:
- Peel the oranges and clementines carefully in large segments.
- On a hard surface, puch out shapes with metal cookie cutters - I used 2 heart shape in different sizes.
- Thread the hearts onto thread, using a needle.
- And now it just have to dry. To speed up the process, you can dry it in your oven, at it's lowest setting, for about a half hour to an hour.
I really like like the result, especially the garland with the small hearts, it looks like beautiful beads - you should give it a try!
Merry Christmas from
