DIY Fruit Christmas Tree Ornaments


I love these ornaments! I think they look beautiful, and once they're used they are compostable!


  • 3 each apples, oranges and starfruit
  • Ground cinnamon, nutmeg or cloves (optional)


  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Baking sheets
  • Ribbon or twine


  • Preheat oven to 200 F
  • Slice apples, oranges, and starfruit into approx 1/4 inch slices. 
  • Remove seeds if desired, I think they look fine seeds-in
  • Sprinkle with the spices if fragrance is desired
  • Place in 200 F oven for 2-6 hours or until dried. Take out and let cool for about 1-2 min
  • Use a fork, knife, toothpick, or other prong to poke a hole for the ribbon or twine.
  • Attach a loop of ribbon or twine, hang, and enjoy!
