What a great way to decorate those small containers. The orange peels looks good but hadn't tasted one yet. Is it sweet with some bitterness? Anyway, you did an awesome job. Thanks for blessing us with your artwork this week at Word Art Wednesday. Hugs and blessings.

You did a Fab job decorating this jar! My Husband loves candied orange peels (but I have no clue how- nor the desire- to make them!). Great project :)
