Orange Peel Craft Roundup

Love eating oranges in the winter? Well, here is a great excuse to eat even more! A friend and I were playing around with cookie cutters and clementine peels last night to make some garlands. I have to say, the texture of the peel was quite fun to work with, and left our hands smelling great! I recommend flattening the shapes first under some heavy books or a cutting board. My shapes ended up curling a lot since they were strung up and left hanging overnight.

Check out this roundup of pretty projects to try with oranges. The links below the photos will take you back to the original source.
