How to create your own orange ornaments:

1. Preheat Oven to 170 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Slice oranges into 1/4 inch or thinner thick slices

3. Use paper towels to pat slices dry to remove any excess juice.

4. Place orange slices directly on oven rack or on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper.

5. Dry slices in oven for 3 hours or until dry. Turn slices every hour.

6. Remove orange slices from oven and allow to cool.

7. Use a knife to slice a tiny slit at the top of the slice and thread a ribbon through and tie at top of loop.
