I recently made some Mulled Wine (Click here for instructable) and didn't want to waste the pieces of orange and lemon I had put into it because they smelt amazing with all th e mulled wine spices and the citrus.

What I thought I could do would be to dry them and use them as Christmas decorations/to scent the air.

It's simple and it goes like this...

Step 1: Collect your oranges/lemons

Get however many oranges/lemons you want to use
(mine was one of each because that's what I put in that batch of mulled wine) 
Slice into 1cm thick slices (about half an inch) or slightly thinner if you're good with a knife, I'm not.

These are not the fruits I used, just an illustration. I used heavily stained red ones.
