1. Line an oven tray with parchment paper.

2. Thinly slice the oranges.

3. Blot the orange slices with paper towels to remove excess moisture.

4. Place the orange slices in a single layer on top of the parchment paper.

5. Bake the oranges in the oven at 120°C/250°F for approximately 3-hours.

  • Check every half hour to hour to make sure the oranges are not burning. Remove if the oranges begin to turn brown.

  • You can pull the oranges out half way into the baking process and flip them over.

Extras you can add to your garland are:


Cinnamon sticks

Evergreen springs

What other ideas do you have? Let us know in the comments!

String the oranges and any extras with twine or ribbon and hang.

Keep any extra oranges for adding to gift packages or use as individual ornaments. You can even add dried orange to hot tea or to hot apple cidar. See the photos below for inspiration.

Now it's your turn!

Be sure and take photos of yourself having a delightful time making your orange garland. Share them on Instagram and tag us @OurStory.Magazine!

I remember mom doing this when I was young. I think I'll do this so that my daughter can remember the beautiful scent as well.
