Walking into a home decorated with fall touches is just part of the equation for a festive, autumnal welcome. The rest of it requires scents, and not just store-bought candles. Go the extra mile this year with the following garland DIY from Hearth and Vine.

Yes, apparently, we’re obsessed with garlands, but they’re just so easy to assemble and beyond pretty to look at it. This particular creation is quite eye-catching for its use of dried oranges, which if you’re really dedicated, must be baked and dried. Then, the heady design truly comes alive with the addition of bay leaves and cinnamon sticks. Yum!

Ingredients and tools required:

  1. Oranges
  2. Whole Bay Leaves
  3. Cinnamon Sticks
  4. Twine
