Cinnamon Stick & Bay Leaf Garland

Well, I finished my garland and I am pleased with it, but no so much with my wreath so I am going back to the drawing board with it. I ran out of my coffee/tea stained homespun so this picture was taken without my homespun being stained. I just wanted to get the pictures up since my Mom was anxious to see them. I plan on removing the homespun and staining more today along with these and then re-doing the bow on top. If you look closely..... I added a rusty star to the bottom of my garlands that I did. These are small garlands, but I am going to try to do some larger ones and once again try to do some wreaths, but I need to try something different for those (lol). Let me know your thoughts on these. I don't think they turned out to bad for my first try. I am sure they will get better with practice.

I think they look great. I may try some of those. I have an area in my kitchen that needs a little something and I think a garland like that would be perfect.

I think it looks really good,as I have done those before & sometimes I had trouble with my bayleaves being brittle. Nice Job!

Oh Lisa! That turned out absolutely fantastic!
I am definately going to have to try looks so prim and fine!
How does it smell?

I think it turned out so prim and cute. I may try it, too. Did the bay leaves crack and break? Have a wonderful day.

It came out great Lisa. I used to have one tha was whole nutmeg, bay leaf, and cinnamon sticks but they had holes drilled and were strung the other way. Your idea is just as cute!!

Hi Lisa,
I have always loved that look and I'm curious if the bay leaves did get brittle...great job on it:)

Lisa, I don't think you would need to do anything different with them...they're perfect.
