Sukkah Decorations

The holiday of Sukkot begins this Wednesday night. If you are decorating a sukkah at your house or synagogue,  here is an idea from my book, (Jewish Holiday Style) for decorating your sukkah--a garland of dried fruit. 

These oranges were sliced and baked in a 275 degree oven for about two hours or until dry, then sprayed with a clear varnish. String with a thread and needle, alternating with wooden beads in colors or natural wood tones. Apples or lemons would work, too.

  2. Hi, I'm from Scotland and just about to "pin" your post. I wanted to ask you, does spraying these with varnish not destroy the gorgeous smell of oranges, I would think it would.....But hi from me in Scotland!

    1. Yes, I afraid the varnish does destroy the smell of the oranges.
