orange wreath

remember the dried orange slices?


I used some of them to decorate a large willow wreath from the dollar store


I attached the slices with fishing line


and tried to alternate the more "well done" slices with the slices that were more on the "rare" side

I was waiting to see what you were going to make with those orange slices, because I bought a bunch of limes I want to do the same to. Of course, I'll be "dehydrating" mine in the oven, since I gave my dehydrator away. It simply was not cost effective and didn't work well. Thanks for the inspiration.

Awesome! And when you get tired of it, it can go outside for the orioles...if you have orioles. They adore oranges!

I just dried some slices - a la Martha Stewart - some came out well done- maybe 250 degree oven as she said, was too hot. Plus I am easily distracted!! I was planning on making individual ornaments with glitter- but I do love your wreath!!!
Well done adds character!!

I discovered these years ago in a cross stitching magazine. Always meant to make one. Wish I had. This is just pretty. :D
