The holidays are getting closer with an incredible speed, and I’m desperately trying to find some time for making some homemade decorations with kids. With our busy everyday schedule it’s hard, but still possible! Here’s what we’ve made already – a centerpiece with a citrus touch! A garland made of tangerine and orange peel. We eat plenty of tangerines and oranges during winter season ( I do mean plenty !) and there is so much peel left, so why not use it for a good purpose?
So what you need is orange (better tangerine – cause it’s much thinner) peel, small play-dough star cutter, a piece of yarn of a desired length and a wooden chopstick to make holes and thread the yarn through.
You should make the holes before the stars have dried up, cause they get too fragile after drying. Leave the stars to dry at a room temperature for about two days or dry them in the open oven on the lowest heat.
If the garland gets long enough, you can use it for the Christmas tree. Ours came out small but still enough to get the needed “spicy holiday look” for our centerpiece.
