Dried Orange Fox Ornament

Dried orange slices are all the rage this Christmas! Turn them into little foxes, add beads, or keep it simple! I loved using these to decorate my Christmas tree! I also used them to decorate my garland as well! Something about the texture adds a fun vibe to the Christmas vibe plus the orange looks great against the green pine!


What you will need:

  • oranges

  • knife

  • scissors

  • string

  • wooden beads

  • black and white paint

  • hot glue gun

  • oven

  • cookie sheet

Time estimation: 2-3 Hours for baking and 20min to decorate.



Watch this video to learn how to make your own or follow my step by step instructions!

Baking Instructions


Step 1.) Preheat the oven to 230 degrees F. Cut slices 1 cm wide, put on a baking sheet with parchment paper to avoid sticking. Put in the oven and Bake for 2-3 hours and flip the slices over every 30 minutes. You can take out smaller slices if they start to brown and leave the bigger slices in their longer. If they do Start to look burnt on the edges, take it out and any slices left just lower the temperature. The burnt edged ones will be perfect for painting later so don't worry too much!


Once all the oranges are out of the oven, let them cool for 30 minutes.
