Festive Lovelies

Tis the season to change up the Autumn Lovely tiered stand. My plan was clove covered oranges, pomegranates, and nuts, mixed in with anything else I may have on hand.



I think it turned out quite festive!


I almost didn't buy the cloves since they were $9.99 for a spice jar, but in the end, I decided that I really wanted the look and a jar of cloves will last me a long time.




I took apart a bunch of garage sale garlands that had different 'jeweled' fruits and pomegranates.



Add a ribbon......






Some nuts and festive 'greenery'......






And the stand is complete. I will add some real Holly as well as we get a bit closer to Christmas.
