Christmas Cookies and Orange Pomanders.

Hello sweet Christmas friends! Finally, the Summer vacation has started for my kids (and me!) and we are now counting down to Christmas!

So to make our home merry and bright this year we have making our own decorations.



We made Christmas Cookies







We also made orange and cinnamon decorations.



We dried sliced oranges overnight in the oven (about 75 degrees Celsius or 170 Fahrenheit). The next morning we attached a cinnamon stick to each slice of orange with some twine (I wanted to use raffia but had run out)....and we made Christmas decorations!

  

 

We made pomanders with oranges and cloves-they smell wonderful, especially when placed on a platter with some evergreens and tea light candles.

 

 




I put the left-over orange slices, cinnamon sticks and cloves and some star anise into my glass candle holders.



The house really smells like Christmas now!

Thank you dear friends for coming to visit today and for Keeping the Christmas spirit Alive, 365!
