DIY Citrus Star Garland


  • 4 oranges
  • 2 lemons
  • twine
  • embroidery needle
  • modge podge
  • paint brush


  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees.

  2. Slice citrus ΒΌ" thick onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

  3. If you have extra peels, use a cookie cutter to cut out fun shapes! We used a star!

  4. Bake for 3 hours, checking ever hour to make sure that they are not burning. The lemons in our batch dehydrated quicker so we took those out at 2 hours. Warning! Your kitchen will smell amazing!

  5. Once the fruit is dehydrated and cooled down, use a paint brush to cover both front and back of each slice with modge podge.

  6. When the slices are dried, use an embroidery needle to thread the slices together with about 3 inches of twine, two at a time and tying a double knot to keep them securely together. 

  7. Once you have the desired length of garland(s), trim the tie knots and hang wherever you would like!
