Spicy Decoration!

I saw these hangings whilst I was in Germany but they were so expensive that I didn't buy. When I was in another shop I spied the dried orange slices and cinnamon sticks in packets for very little cost, 3 euros total in fact,  so I brought them home and made this whilst watching TV one evening. I added some Star Anise, which I've had in store for ever. They are so easy to make and just strung with fishing line and attached to a wire clothes hanger pulled into a circle then wrapped with some sisal fibres. I added a few drops of spicy Christmas aromatherapy oils and it smells good and looks good too.
