Holiday Citrus Garland Decorations
This entry was posted on December 1, 2015.
Elegant Citrus Lemon, Lime, Kumquat Holiday Garland with Pomegranate door decoration:
Things you will need.
☼ 1/2-inch-diameter rope
☼ Evergreen (Citrus Leaves smell wonderful) or salal leaves or any natural looking leaf garland found in craft stores.
☼ Small oranges, lemons, limes and/or kumquats
☼ Fake cranberries found in craft shop
☼ Cinnamon Sticks
☼ 30-gauge florist's wire
☼ Pine cones
Whole fruit will last one to two weeks, possibly longer if the room is on the cool side.
Or you can dry out the fruits prior to usage and this will last the whole season.
To do this, slice the fruit and bake in an oven at 200 degrees to dry them (be sure to dry out on a cookie sheet, flipping them every so often) or you can dry them using a food dehydrator. Follow manufacturer's instructions on drying the fruit.
Cover the rope with leaves by attaching them with wire. Run the wire through off center of large fruit and then back through fruit and attach to garland. Run wire up through one hollow of the cinnamon stick and back down through another hollow of the stick. Add 3 or 4 cinnamon sticks to a cluster.
Secure the fruit to the rope leaf garland where you would like. Add the cinnamon sticks.
Attach the cranberries throughout. Small pine cones can be added by screwing in c hooks on the bottom of the cone, and attaching them. To make it more secure and position the cones I recommend cutting small wires and bending the wire into the shape of a U . Situate where you want the cones, slip the U shape between the garland and push both ends of the wire into the bottom of the cone, this helps hold the cone in any position you want.
Pomegranate Door Decoration:
Make a Pomegranate door decoration by making a ribbon loop around a door knob pushing wire through both ends of ribbon into the Pomegranate, add a nice floppy bow.
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
