These look so pretty, any idea how long they last?

i have no idea! fingers crossed until after Christmas, it has been 4 days and so far they look just as they did when i took them out of the oven so they should last a good few weeks at least.

Yeah, I'd imagine a few weeks at least, as presumably they are dried right out with the heat, and without moisture, they shouldn't go moldy. They're a really nice idea, thanks for the tutorial :)

Could this be done with other fruits as well and not just citrus fruits? What would you suggest if yes?

A great idea I'm going to have to try this year. Though I might use grapefruit and lemons just to keep my cats from eating the ornaments. XD

i think so, i really want to try it with apples, i know bananas work too! they would be great for those tiny little trees you can get hehe.

Oh i faniced making lemon ones too but i doubt i will have the time now, might make some anyway after christmas to use as potpourri as it smells so nice :)

thanks :) doing a little research when i had the idea, it turns out it is a very old fashioned and traditional thing to use to decorate trees.
