DIRECTIONS

  • Slice the oranges, limes and lemons 1/8-inch thick.
  • Put a wire rack on top of a cookie sheet and lay each piece of sliced fruit on the rack.
  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  • When the oven is hot, place the rack of fruit in the oven and let “bake” for two hours (if your fruit is taking a long time to dry, turn the oven off and leave the fruit in overnight.
  • When the fruit is dry and cool, hot-glue the citrus pieces to one another by overlapping them in line with the candle’s base. Do not glue-gun the candle directly or the wax will melt.
  • When the candles are completely decorated, and the glue is dry, stagger the candles in the middle of your Thanksgiving table and weave the berry branch throughout.
