First, you’ll need some oranges and/or lemons. Slice them all to a similar size. You want them a little thick, but not too thick or they won’t dry.
How to Make a Dried Fruit Wreath
This wreath is so easy to make and smells so delicious! It's the perfect easy wreath for Christmas. And if you have left over dried fruit you can make garland for inside as well!
I went to the local park and picked some pinecones. They weren’t fully open, so I popped those in the oven for a couple hours on low to help them open, kill the bugs, and dry up the sap.
Hot glue the dried fruit, cranberries, and pinecones onto the wreath base. I started with the dried fruit and then layered the pinecones and cranberries on top to add interest.
You can add a bow and then I hung it on my front door and it smelled fantastic anytime we opened the door.
Next year, I might add a little cinnamon sticks too!
If you have left over dried fruit and cranberries make a garland too!
