How to dry orange slices
It’s super easy to dry orange slices. I also do grapefruits too because I just love the color!
- Start by preheating your oven to 200 degrees F.
- Slice your oranges and grapefruits about 1/4 inch thick.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment and place the citruses on the parchment paper.
- Bake in the oven for about 5-6 hours, flipping regularly so that each side is dried evenly.
- Let cool

- Start by threading some or the twine through the eye of the needle.
- With the point end of your needle, pierce the cranberry and pull it through so that it is on the twine.
- Repeat with the orange slices and cranberries in whatever pattern you choose.
- Cut the twine and tie the ends together.
