Materials and tools needed:

  • orange, lemon and lime slices
  • cinnamon sticks
  • cones

Step by step realization:

Important note: if you plan to air dry your fruit, the project should start weeks before its final completion; note, however, that you could dehydrate your fruit in the oven – in this case the drying time would be only 3 hours at a low temperature of 50 º C. However, as you will see below, the drying in the microwave -waves is another option to consider;

  2. Place the slices on the plate of your microwave oven and put in defrost mode. Dry your fruit at 10-minute intervals, turning the slices each time. The drying time will depend on the power of your microwave, so be careful not to burn the fruit! If you are at such a risk, reduce the intervals to 5 minutes..
  3. Finally compose your medley. In the specific case, apart from the dried fruits, we also used cinnamon sticks and pine cones but you could also add star anise, whole almonds, essential oils and others …

 Materials and tools needed:

  • strong glue
  • white glue to put in the jar (a very common solution is to use a drop or a few drops of glycerin instead)

  1. What you need to do first is attach the figurine to the inner part of your lid.

  4. Turn your lid over so that the figurine is inserted into the jar and screw on. You could also use hot glue for added strength.
  5. Turn the jar over, shake and watch the snow fall.
