Often times the most simple and inexpensive of ideas are the ones that turn out the most amazing. In this case, they also happen to make your home smell good as well. Can you spot the money saving ornament idea on this tree? Click through to get the inside scoop.

Over at Young House Love, the dynamic duo have been busy setting up their Christmas Tree for all to see. Sure they make a cute timelapse video (which you can see here), but more importantly, they made a good portion of the ornaments on their tree.

By slicing oranges thin and drying them in the oven, they created these lovely little light catchers that are sure to keep the air smelling great as the lights keep them warm. They look great and can be done with most citrus fruits.

They're also a great way to decorate a tree outside if you're looking to decorate your bushes or trees with a little holiday cheer, try this on for size, plus the birds can eat away on it as the season progresses. Do without the metal hangers and simply put the end of the branch through the middle of the orange to hold things in place, that way there's zero clean up!
