Bake in the oven for between 1.5 and 2 hours, turning once or twice part way through.
Once baked, take them out of the oven and leave to cool overnight. This will allow a little more gentle air drying time so that they fully harden up.
Poke a little hole in the orange flesh, close to the skin.
Thread a ribbon through and tie the ends together.

Hang on your Christmas tree.
