Fall Garland

Updated: Aug 18, 2020

Hey Guy's!!! OMGEEE, can ya'll just say that with me OMGEEE!! We're just going to get to it & chat about how gorgeous our Fall Garland turned out. Here at Country Chic Homes we love garlands & making a statement with them, so why not have this Fall Garland be over the top gorgeous. After creating one last year, I knew this year I'd be creating another one but oh so different. So let's chat 1st with what ya'll will need to create your very own.


  1. 2 large oranges

  2. Twine

  3. 2" Wood Beads

  4. 1" Wood Beads

  5. Cinnamon Sticks

  6. Bay Leaves

  7. Cinnamon

  8. Nutmeg

  9. Ground Cloves

  10. Lace Ribbon, different colors & textures (check out your 2nd hand stores or antique shops)

  11. Tulle

  12. Needle

  13. Glue Gun

After you gather all your items, the 1st thing you'll be doing is baking your oranges.



ORANGES:

  1. Slice oranges in circles about a quarter inch each. With 2 oranges you'll get about 10-14 slices.

  2. Pat dry slices with a paper towel

  3. On a cookie sheet place parchment paper

  4. Place slices on the parchment paper

  5. Add your spices to each slice on both sides

  6. Place in oven at your lowest setting or at 220 degrees for about 3.5 hours.

  7. Half way through the baking flip over the slices. Make sure that each slice is starting to get crisp before flipping.

  8. Once slices are completely crisp remove from oven

CREATING THE TASSELS:


To create your tassels you'll start by wrapping twine around a book, I would say for this garland you'd want a chunky tassel. Wrap about 40 times around the book. Clip the end of the twine roll leaving about 4" so you can wrap around the top of your tassel. Tie a secure knot. That's it!! If you need a visual check out my stories on IG Tassels..

CREATING THE FALL GARLAND:


Thread your needle length, pattern on how you add the cinnamon sticks, bay leaves, orange slices & wood beads. Cinnamon sticks are a bit tricky they're hard to thread & break easy so be gentle. I cut my sticks in half which made it a bit easier.

  1. Thread your needle

  2. Thread in one tassel

  3. Add all your pieces, create your own pattern by rotating pieces. Do not add lace & tulle

  4. Thread in 2nd tassel, secure it with a knot.

  5. If you still haven't clipped off the twine from the roll do so now

  6. Now add your tulle & lace by cutting pieces at different lengths & thickness

  7. To have your tassels complete, snip in between to have them frayed instead of looped. Add glue to the bead next to the tassel to secure it & have it straight.

YOU'RE DONE!!
