For holiday decorating, turn your attention to your fruit bowl – with a bit of string, a knife, and perhaps a handful of cloves, you can make colorful and fragrant ornaments, garlands, and candles. We even found a festive use for leftover citrus peels! • 1 Dried orange slices make colorful ornaments and garlands. Examples above are from Good Housekeeping and Home for the Holidays. • 2 Fragrant pomanders are a time-honored tradition. For more design inspiration, visit Hannas Sjarmerende Jul. • 3 Scored and dehydrated oranges become natural tree ornaments at HGTV. • 4 Fruit, olive oil, and a paring knife are all you need to make a charming clementine candle. • 5 A pretty idea from Something: use citrus peels to decorate your home and gift wrapping.
