Christmas Décor 2022: My Cozy Picks

Now is the perfect time to start shopping for Christmas décor 2022 from a few of my favorite online shops before items begin to sell out.

I know, I get it. It’s only the beginning of October and here I am putting together a blog post about Christmas décor. If you think about it though, we are less than 3 months away from Christmas day (how is that even possible?!). Before you cringe at the thought of Christmas and move on from this post, there is a reason I am sharing my cozy picks for Christmas Décor 2022…now!

In recent years, seasonal décor has sold out quickly. I am not sure if manufacturers are producing less products or if there continues to be supply chain issues. Whatever the case may be, shopping for your Christmas décor early, before items begin to sell out, is a good idea.

I’ve scoured the websites of four of my favorite online retailers to help you find the coziest décor for your home this Christmas. Let’s take a look at some Christmas décor and do a little shopping (shh, don’t tell Dave!).

Oven Dried Oranges

Oven Dried Orange Slices

Oven dried orange slices are beautiful, easy to make, and are a great addition to fall and holiday home décor.

Oven Dried Orange Slices

It’s become an annual fall tradition for me to make oven dried orange slices in preparation for the holidays. I love the look & smell of dried orange slices. They look beautiful in a Christmas garland or hanging on the Christmas tree as an ornament. They are also a great addition to stovetop potpourri for a delicious citrus scent.

The options of what you can do with oven dried orange slices are really endless!

Oven Dried Orange Slices

You may be thinking it’s a little early to be planning Christmas décor when fall hasn’t even officially begun?! You may be right (you guys know I started decorating for fall August 1st, right?). However, properly dried oranges can last for years, so getting a head start on these now, helps me later when the craziness of the holidays begins.

And…I have a couple of new ideas on how to incorporate beautiful oven dried orange slices into fall décor. You can see those ideas, here!

Oven Dried Oranges

How do you dry oranges in the oven?

The great thing about drying or dehydrating oranges is that you do not need to invest in a dehydrator.

Oranges can be dried in the oven by thinly & evenly slicing the oranges, placing slices on a parchment lined baking sheet, and drying in a 200 degree oven for about 4 hours.

Oven Dried Oranges

Steps to Drying Orange Slices in the Oven

1. Heat Oven to 200 Degrees

The most important step is to heat your oven to the proper temperature.

If your oven can go to a lower temperature, you can dry oranges at 170 degrees. You will achieve the same dried citrus results, however drying time will take a little longer.

Oven Dried Oranges

Convection ovens (or convection toaster ovens) are great for drying fruit. The convection oven fan helps to evenly circulate the steam, which is perfect for drying citrus. The moisture is evenly removed making the drying process move along faster.

2. Line Baking Sheet With Parchment Paper

Place orange slices on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. This will help prevent the orange slices from sticking to the baking sheet.

Orange Slices

3. Thinly & Evenly Slice Oranges

Thinly and evenly sliced oranges are the key to perfectly dried fruit. A mandolin is a great kitchen tool to achieving thin, even slices. A knife will also work, however you will want to make sure that the oranges are sliced evenly.

I sliced a combination of navel and mandarin oranges.

4. Oven Dry Orange Slices

Once the thinly, evenly sliced orange slices are placed on a parchment lined baking sheet (about 1/2″ apart between slices), add the baking sheet to the oven.

Orange Slices on a Baking Sheet

Bake the orange slices for approximately 4 hours (exact drying time will depend on oven, size of fruit, and thickness of slices). I flip the orange slices and rotate the baking sheet in the oven once every hour. This helps the fruit to dry evenly.

Remove the orange slices from the oven once they are completely dried and all moisture has been removed.

Oven Dried Orange Slices

How can you tell when dried orange slices are done?

Orange slices are done drying when the pulp of the orange appears glassy, similar to a stained glass window. If the orange slices are still tacky, it may need a little more time in the oven. Remember, the larger the slice, the longer it will take to dry in the oven.

Dried Oranges

How to Store Dried Orange Slices

Properly dried orange slices (all moisture removed from slices) can last for years.

Dried orange slices can be stored in a baggie or air-tight container in a dark, cool, humidity free location in your home. This allows the orange slices to last longer, and the slices will keep their beautiful, vibrant color.

Oven Dried Orange Slices

What kinds of citrus can be dried in the oven?

Any citrus can be dried in the oven. Drying times will vary based on the size & moisture content of the fruit.

  • Lemons
  • Limes
  • Grapefruit
  • Cara Cara Oranges
  • Navel Oranges
  • Mandarin Oranges
  • Blood Oranges

What to do With Dried Orange Slices

There are so many ways to utilize dried orange slices. They can be used as a garnish on food or drinks, eaten as a snack, or placed in a bowl for décor. Here are a few of my favorites…

1. Christmas Garland

Citrus & pine are a beautiful combination for the holidays. I loved the coziness this garland added to our kitchen window last Christmas.

2. Stovetop Potpourri

Last year I created homemade Christmas gifts for friends & family by combining dried fruit, evergreens, and seasonal spices in a mason jar for dried stovetop potpourri. This gift was a great way to share the coziness of our home with others!

3. Gift Tags

Dried orange slices are a beautiful, organic, and unexpected touch as a gift tag when added to Christmas gifts.

Christmas Popcorn

Christmas Popcorn With White Chocolate & Sprinkles

Christmas popcorn is a simple, delicious treat made with popcorn, cake mix, white chocolate, sprinkles, and candy. A perfect treat for family movie night.

Popcorn With Sprinkles & Candies

Merry Christmas…in July! You must be thinking I’ve gone off the deep end sharing a Christmas themed blog post in July. A month smack dab in the middle of summer, not winter. And, you very well may be right. But before you pass judgement, have you heard of Christmas in July?!

If not, Christmas in July is simply an opportunity to embrace that cozy holiday feeling, without all the holiday stressors that come along with Christmas in December.

Christmas Popcorn

To celebrate Christmas in July I decided to turn down the a/c, throw on my favorite pair of flannel pajamas, grab a cozy blanket to cuddle on the couch, turn on a Hallmark Christmas movie, and gorge on Christmas popcorn! You can see me in action in my “How to Celebrate Christmas in July” reel found on Instagram.

Popcorn With Candy & Sprinkles

This Christmas popcorn is perfect for a family movie night on the couch now or during the holidays.

Popcorn in Boxes

Christmas popcorn is an easy no-bake snack that the kiddos can easily help with and tastes just like a Christmas sugar cookie. Everyone will love the sweet and salty blend of popcorn coated in vanilla cake mix, with the smooth drizzle of white chocolate, along with the crunchiness of the candy & sprinkles mixed in.

Christmas Popcorn

What You Need to Make Christmas Popcorn

  • Popped popcorn
  • White cake mix powder
  • White chocolate, melted
  • Christmas sprinkles
  • Chocolate candies
Popcorn on a Baking Sheet

How to Make Christmas Popcorn

In a very large mixing bowl, stir popcorn & cake mix together until well combined.

Christmas Popcorn

Place chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 25 second intervals until melted and smooth (stirring between each one). Pour melted chocolate into popcorn bowl, reserving a small amount for topping.

Popcorn Snack

Add sprinkles and chocolate candies to popcorn bowl and mix until well combined.

Christmas Popcorn With White Chocolate

Spread popcorn mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Drizzle the remaining melted chocolate over the popcorn and top with additional sprinkles. Let stand for 30-45 minutes. Eat immediately or store in airtight containers.

Additional Tips

Instead of popping your own popcorn, use bagged kettle corn popcorn to save time!

Use any red, green, or white chocolate candies. I used milk chocolate M&M’s in this mixture, however mint M&M’s or Sixlets would be delicious as well.

Line your baking sheet with parchment paper to avoid the chocolate from sticking to the sheet. This also helps cleanup go a lot faster!

How to Make Christmas Popcorn

Other Christmas Popcorn Ideas

This Christmas popcorn is simple to make with the flavors of a sugar cookie. Feel free to change up this recipe by substituting or mixing in other ingredients!

  • Create a mint flavored Christmas popcorn with the addition of crushed candy canes. Wouldn’t that be delicious with a cup of hot cocoa?!
  • Mix in your favorite nuts to add crunch to the popcorn mixture.
  • Add red or green food coloring to your white chocolate for a little more Christmas color.
  • Use milk or dark chocolate along with the white chocolate to create zebra popcorn.
Holiday Treat

How Long Will Christmas Popcorn Last?

Christmas popcorn is best served immediately. However, the popcorn mixture will last about 1-2 weeks if stored in an airtight container.

Holiday Treat

I served our popcorn in these cute movie night popcorn boxes to which I added a curling ribbon handle for a fun little twist.

If gifting your popcorn, these vintage inspired tins filled with popcorn would be adorable to gift to a loved one, or a plastic food storage container with popcorn stored inside could easily be mailed. You could also fill a Christmas mug with popcorn, wrap with cellophane, and add a bow for a last minute gift.

Delicious Snack

I hope this Christmas popcorn inspired you to try something new and to just maybe, maybe bring a little bit of the Christmas spirit to July!
