You could put a tea light inside and suspend them in your garden.

That would look cool to see a bunch of them hanging.
Errm - they're quite combustible! Tried a tea-light in one and it lasted about 10 minutes before going up in flames! :})
Perhaps I'll forget that idea then. :-))
They do look lovely with lights in, though - you could use those artificial candles or actually probably put a fairy light bulb in each one - that would look really pretty with a whole lot of orange lanterns! They'd have a nice smell too!
I like your fairy light idea. Good thinking. We'd have to eat a lot of oranges though. What a hardship - ha ha ha.

Very cute! Oranges would make a great sub for small pumpkins since I understand there is a shortage of pumpkins this year. You could put those LED tealights or some LED throwies inside to light them up.

Cool! How long do these guys last?

I have mine going on three days and they look okay. The vasoline really helps for around the edges!
Nice trick for the Vaseline! Where'd you learn that?
cpacker1 (author)  Flintlock3 years ago
Well, i apply Vaseline to my own face when it's dry...lol. Apply overnight and you get instantly smooth skin...better than any lotion!! So i was like it would be perfect for oranges then!
Honey is awesome also. It is a bit spendy though. It sure works nice. Have a great day!
