Scented Fall Garland

Materials needed to make a scented fall garland. 
  dehydrated orange slices
1 bag of mixed scented rose hips, pine cones and cinnamon sticks
Twine and scissors

Thread the dried materials onto the twine.  

The first garland is simple and considered primitive using only cinnamon sticks and dried orange slices.

We then glued on  rose hips and some pine cones for added dimension.  The possibilities are endless.  When you are working with garlands, wreaths or florals it is always more appealing to the eye to use an odd number in your design.  Work in 3's or 5's.

By adding some extra decoration and foliage we made a gorgeous garland to lay on top of the mantle.
