Makes one 6-foot garland
48 Bella Viva Orchards Certified Organic Orange Chips
24 Bella Viva Orchards Dried Lemon Slices
96 dried bay leaves
12 cinnamon sticks
Soft jute twine (from craft store or hardware store)
Large upholsterer’s needle (large enough to fit the twine through the eye)
1. Cut jute twine into a 10-foot length. Thread one end of twine through the needle.
2. Thread two bay leaves, one Certified Organic Orange Chip, one Dried Lemon Slice, one more Certified Organic Orange Chip and 2 more bay leaves onto the twine. Push to the end until you have one foot of twine remaining. Tie a knot to secure the first Orange Chip grouping to the twine and hold the remaining pieces in place as they’re added to the garland. Once secure, tie the twine in a knot around one cinnamon stick. This is the pattern you will follow until you have used all the Orange Chips, Dried Lemon Slices, bay leaves and cinnamon sticks.
3. Drape over a doorway, around a lighting fixture, or wherever you’d like to enjoy some beautiful fragrant holiday décor!
