Oranges, spice, and everything nice! Here’s how to decorate your RV for Christmas in ways that are beautiful, delicious, and fragrant!
Orange and Cloves
Press whole cloves into oranges and tie a ribbon around the orange. Hang from your overhead compartments, windows, bathroom, or any place that could use a spicy citrus fragrance!
Dried Orange Slice Ornaments
Slice oranges in quarter-inch slices. Bake in your oven at 250-degrees for approximately 2 ½ hours, flipping every 30 minutes to prevent burning. Once dry, they will be slightly translucent. Press whole cloves or star anise into the orange. Thread some twine through it and hang from your fireplace mantel, on your tree, or anywhere you have twinkly white lights to shine through.
In a wooden bowl, mix an assortment of dried orange slices (dry according to directions above), dried apple slices (prepare in similar fashion), whole cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, whole star anise, miniature pinecones, and any dried red flowers to give a pop of color.
Your family will love this mulled cider, and it’ll fill the air with a delicious smell, too!
