Homemade Citrus Ornaments. These make a terrific food-themed gift, but make a batch for your own tree, too. All manner of citrus fruits work well, including clementines, meyer lemons and tangerines, so use whatever you have on hand. Since these ornaments are a cinch to make, it's best to compost them at the end of each season and make a new batch for the next holiday, instead of trying to store them throughout the year. Package for gift giving with our downloadable gift tag.

Start with small foam balls; cover with air-dry clay, adding an extra-small amount to each to shape into a nose if desired. Wet the clay to attach black beads for eyes; use a toothpick to draw mouths. Paint facial details with orange paint, or add a bit of cosmetic blush for rosy cheeks. Add a hanger using an 1-1/2-inch-long piece of florist's wire. Seal with clear gloss gel medium or clear glitter paint.
