These are really pretty!
I make decorations with dried orange slices, but I've never thought of shaping the peel - what a great idea!! Happy

You can speed up the process by baking them in a low oven.
And they *can* be waterproofed by varnishing or coating with PVA etc. Happy

They DO change colors,(turned brownish) but still smelling good. Don't get them wet though.
I made some about 8 months ago and haven't rotten yet.
