HOW TO MAKE A Easy Dried Fruit Swag

Good day to all my wonderful Prim Friends! A BIG PRIM HUG!!!!!! Well since I have made these today I figured I would explain how to make these dandy liitle swags! You will need the following items!
1. 5 oranges
2. 5 apples
3. pinecones
4. Cinnimon sticks
5. Twine or string or raffia
First you need to bake the apples and oranges! You can do this several ways! The best way would be to cut the slizes into 1/2 inch slises and dip them in a bath of asorbic acid and water mix.Dry the slices off and then sprinkle some spices on them and bake in a preheated oven at 200 degrees! If you just bake them without the dip its okay to! You just have to sprinkle them with spices of your choice and bake them for even longer thats all. Like 200 degrees for 5-6 hours! You need to crack the oven door so that your oven acts as a dehidrater. JUST WATCH THEM AND USE YOUR JUGEMENT AS TO WHEN THERE DONE! THEY MAKE YOUR HOME SMELL JUST WONDERFUL! Finally when they are all done baking in the oven you can string them just like the picture or you can do what I did and put one apple then tied a piece of homespun then one orange then homespun and so one! Just mess with the final product and you''l have created a wonderful masterpiece for you mantle or where ever!
