DIY dehydrated fruit Christmas garland

I love the look of a dehydrated fruit garland, they make such gorgeous, minimalistic Christmas decor. So last week I played a little Michael Buble Christmas and made my own. It was super easy and fun!

You’ll need:

Some citrus fruits – I chose oranges, grapefruits and lemons.
Cranberries
Bay leaves
Fishing line or twine
Needle

Directions:

1.) Preheat oven on lowest setting. I set mine to 200 degrees F.
2.) Slice citrus fruits thinly, about 1/4 inches thick.

3.) Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
4.) Bake in oven for 5-7 hours flipping each slice over every 2 hours or so.
5.) Let fruit cool
6.) Using a thin needle, thread the fruit, bay leaves and cranberries onto fishing line (I originally tried twine but I couldn’t get the cranberries to thread) in whatever pattern you choose.
7.) Tie the ends and hang wherever you like!
