Advent Day 8 - Stars and Oranges

Stars and oranges are a good Christmas combination! The wise men followed a star and I bet oranges grew somewhere near where they came from. I am fond of oranges and they are good for you…packed with Vitamin C and fibre. Anyway…don’t throw away the skin. Cut out some decorations. My smallest cutter is this star and I challenge myself as to how many I can cut out of the skin of my evening orange. It can be quite a few. Then I take a skewer and thread them on and leave them somewhere to dry. When dry, using a needle with a big enough eye, I thread them on to twine and hang them on the Christmas tree. Looks really pretty and smells quite nice too.
