Whether you’re a last minute Lucy or believe firmly in zero waste, eco charities are encouraging festive decor enthusiasts to create their own orange peel Christmas decorations.
The idea is that instead of throwing away your food waste you can create something entirely new – by making festive ornaments!
The peels can make an astonishing amount of festive designs including star or Christmas-shaped baubles or even star stringed lights.
Of course, not only will these festive decorations make a bit of a statement in your home, they’re sure to smell fantastic too.
Plus, if you’re already a dab hand at creating clove oranges in time for Christmas, these could make for that perfect crafty gift idea. (Last minute of course but who’s to know?)
To make your very own follow the instructions below.
How to Make Your Own Orange Peel Christmas Decorations
- Peel your orange carefully that you get wide stripes.
- Cut them with your cookie cutter and make a small hole into them for a string.
- Dry them on the radiator or put them on a tray with a baking paper and bake them on the lowest temperature which your oven allows.
