Easy dried orange garland

I get asked so many questions about my orange garland.  I am NO PRO by any means, but I can tell you exactly what I did that turned out great!  

As many of you know,  we hope to list our home at the beginning of the year.  While we are building our dream home we will be living tiny.  Needless to say I had to start getting rid of things a loooong time ago for this to work.  This year instead of getting all of our Christmas decor down from the  attic to decorate with I got it down to chunk out the window! … ok , that was extremely dramatic. I actually just donated 90% of it and the rest I went ahead and packed away.  SO I had to find a way to decorate this year that didn’t  involve decor I would have to pack away  immediately.  Most of my decor this year consists of candy canes , dried oranges , rosemary , and some live greenery.  (Sure, I have a few other things, but not much at all.  And that’s just how we like it now! Less is more.  I can just pack the things I have left in a small tub to store.) 

So here is how I made my garland…

All you need is a couple of oranges and some twine. 

First, I set my oven on the lowest it would go (I believe it was 135).  Remember, you’re not trying to bake them, only dry them. Then, I sliced my oranges very thin.  I then went ahead and poked a small hole in each slice (it’s easier to do it befor you dry them).  Next, I placed each orange directly on my oven rack.  I set my timer for 4 hours and went about my day!  When I checked them they were perfect!  So I strung them on some twine and that’s it!  Yep, it was that easy. 

I don’t feel like that was much of a DIY tutorial because it was that simple, but I got SO many questions on this so I thought I would just tell you all exactly what I did.  I hope that helps! 

Love always,  Savannah

  • It is beautiful here in Georgia.  All the doors and windows are open, I’m planting some new seeds, and packing up some extra dishes in our kitchen.  I’m already missing this view a little bit... ☀️🌱🌻🌞 .

  • I’m sitting here trying to figure out why it took me 25 years to realize that it’s not material things, financial security, or a planned future that matter. All that really sets my soul on fire is the well-being of the people around me. There is something infinitely healing about the process of nature and knowing that He has made everything beautiful in its time. We lose so much energy planning and preparing; and we forget to embrace each and every season. We forget that that’s where happiness stems from. Do the world a favor today: live for the moment and be great. If God can take a winter like this one and turn it into spring, the work He can do in you is limitless. 🌿🌷☀️🌱 .

  • We are LOVING this spring time weather we’ve been having.  We’ve already been to the park, gone out for breakfast, and rode our bikes around the neighborhood.  What are your plans for the day?! What’s the weather like in your part of the world?! Happy Tuesday, friends!  I challenge you all to be a light today. I think the world always needs more of that. 🤗😘🤩 .

  • I never realized how much of a candle hoarder I was until I started cleaning out this little secretaries desk just now. 😳🤷🏻‍♀️🕯🤣 This little piece of furniture is my LAST ONE to clean out before listing! 😱😃 New weed guard liner and pine straw is going down as we speak.  It’s getting close, y’all! Happy Monday! .

  • This weekend has been amazing. It’s been sunny and 70°, our doors have been open all weekend, and tonight the kids bath water was completely brown from playing in the mud.🤣😳😂 I’d call that a win !  My parents came over today and we got SO much accomplished here at the house !  We should be listing very very soon. Thank you ALL for the love, support, and kind words on our journey. It all means the world and never goes unnoticed. I hope you all had an amazing weekend also!! .

  • We just finished up our last basketball game of the season and had our banquet!  This mama is so proud of Rylee Gray’s first basketball season!  If you’re looking for us today we’ll be nailing up a few fence boards and pressure washing the house... considering it’s 70° outside. 😳🤷🏻‍♀️🏡😂 Yes...Monday we had a snow day...you do remember correctly.  Have a great Saturday, y’all !! .
