Mo's pink grapefruit christmas tree decorations tutorial!!!

 Afternoon peeps!!!
Today we have a bloggy post from the squishably cute Little mo!!!! it is all about his tree decorations made with pink grapefruit.
Its in Little Mo's words but mummy gets to type because she is quickerer.
All you need to do is slice up a pink grapefruit in slices of about 1cm thick (...get Mummy or another growed up person to do this as its a bit tricky for small peeps!!) then dry every circle and give it a squish with the tea towel to get some of the juice out. You can use oranges too can't you mummy.

Then put it on the kitchen radiator for a few days (...mummy note... we have a double radiator and Mo loves to watch the drying out process which takes a couple of days on our radiator, he likes to see how it has changed everyday but you can put the slices on a grill tray in the oven at 110 degrees c for 3 hrs and it dries out that way too)

 Buy some of them tree hangy thingies, my mummy buys them in the garden centre, don't you mummy? the one with the cool decorations and movey rudolph ( was going to leave that bit out but its too cute!!)
and you push one end through a little bell that jingles and then push your grapefruit on it too, see here's mine on  its hangy thing with my little red bell
 Then get some nice ribbon and tie a knot in it up from the bell bit.
I hanged mine on my christmas tree but sometimes I like them on my door and on my radiator and even in my car near my window on that thing mummy holds onto when daddy is driving.........( mummy note...pmsl laughing at this point!!!)

This is what it looks like in my tree
He he he he!! Mummy is back to write her bit now. How cute was that?!! it was too funny to write it all down ready this afternoon but he decided he didn't want to do a 'video tube' as he has a cough and might spoil it!!!
He absolutely loves making these those so if your little peeps need a bit of something to do then have a go at this one, Mo would love to see them if anyone else makes some.

I hope its ok with the Allsorts challenge blog girls for me to pop mo over in their going in circles challenge too.

Back with a me post tomorrow!!!
