Dried Orange Ornaments

Turn oranges into beautiful rustic-looking ornaments with this simple craft.

*This craft uses a knife and an oven. Ask an adult for help and supervision!


  • Oranges (or another citrus like grapefruit, lemons, etc.)

  • Cookie sheet

  • Parchment paper

  • Toothpick

  • Twine


  1. Preheat your oven to 200 °F.

  2. Cut your oranges into 1 cm slices.

  3. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Then, lay your orange slices in a single layer on the sheet.

  4. Let them bake for around 2 to 3 hours, turning them over once every hour.

  5. Once the time is up, remove them from the oven and let them dry. Once they’re dry, you can use a toothpick to gently poke a tiny hole near the edge, and string the twine or ribbon through. Tie the ends together, and hang it up!

If you want to get even more creative, try painting the orange slices after they're baked and cooled down!
