Dried orange garland fall home decor with amber vases

Dried Orange Fall Decor

I have always loved how dried oranges add a whimsical vibe to seasonal fall decor.  Dried orange slices can be used in so many ways, including the very popular dried orange garland (maybe I will do that for Christmas!).

It also happens to be an easy project to involve the kids in so I enlisted my boys to help with this one.  My older son is a budding chef so he was thrilled to do the slicing (1/8″ to 1/4″ thick) while my younger son set up the baking sheet and preheated the oven (175 degrees for 4-6 hours, until slices are dry to the touch).

Once I had my dried orange slices I used a needle and thread to attach them to some greens.  You could also use a toothpick to poke the holes and use twine or other decorative thread to hang them.  For this fall themed console table I didn’t want to go with traditional dried orange garland so I decided to use the slices to liven up 2 large amber glass vases.

The final result!  These orange slices add adorable character to the amber colored large glass vases.  I mixed the rest of the orange slices with some natural moss on a lower shelf.
