Naturally Festive: Holiday Decorating with Oranges and Clementines

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.
