I pin a lot of creative pins on Pinterest every day. There are times that I am inspired to actually try them out. This dried orange slice wreath is one of those pins.

It’s time for the November Pin Challenge! The purpose of the Pinterest Challenge is to motivate us to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month’s challenge is all about Christmas!
Inspiration for this project was this pin.
Ever since my husband got a Presto food dehydrator last Christmas, I have been waiting since then to make a project with dried orange slices for Christmas.
Whether used on garland or wreaths or just in a bowl, dried orange slices are beautiful in decorations and smell so good too.
Easy steps to make a dried orange slice wreath.
To start my project, I cut up five small clementine oranges that hadn’t already been eaten quickly by everyone in the family. These little clementine oranges are such a sweet treat around our house and don’t usually last very long.
I placed the slices in a single layer on parchment paper inside the dehydrator and turned it on. It was just that easy!
Since they were small slices it didn’t take long to dry them out. I checked on the progress after about 4 hours and they were already done.
You can purchase a similar machine or even just dried orange slices online.
The base for my wreath is a 12 inch grapevine wreath and wired garland ties from Dollar Tree.
I used hot glue to attach the pine cones and the orange slices to one side of the wreath, after attaching a festive Merry Christmas bow.
To give it a Christmas flair, I added the twigs of wired garland ties purchased from the Dollar Tree, and pine cones from my own back yard that I have already cleaned and baked to preserve them.
