Holiday Décor Ideas with Citrus

To create this, slice some nice seedless navel oranges.  Leave the slices to dry in an oven with the light on, turning them every 4 – 8 hours until the slices are dry.  Then string the slices together with some star anise.

These strings can be used in the window for a very modern look.  When they are hanging in the window, they remind me of the sun.  It is fun to look at these solar-like slices as the sun shines through them.

Orange pomanders are a classic.  Use a skewer to pierce the rind before adding cloves.  Unless you live in a dry climate, make sure the finished pomanders are first well dried in an oven or dehydrator before setting them out.
