I have never seen or done these before, they are beautiful. Is it only done with oranges or can you do limes and lemons as well? Does it give an orange fragrance off or does it have no scent at all? They are so pretty and look easy enough to do as well.

I have made these a couple of times now and I love them. They remind me of stained glass when they dry. They look very nice on the tree, especially if you are going for a more traditional look. I have never tried to keep them once the season was over. It is too impractical. It is better to make new ones each year.

This looks and sounds like a great idea but it won't work in Florida. Anything that contains food will be attacked by roaches, either on the tree or when stored away. I have been here for 48 years and seen my sons first grade pasta art projects eaten , my salt dough ornaments eaten and turned to clumps. You have to seal everything ith several layers of polyurethane in order to protect them.
