What do you need to make the lemon leaf garland?
Michael says you can source the lemon leaves from your local florist and many big craft stores and grocery stores also carry them around the holidays for decorating. You’ll also need scissors and floral wire.
What's the cost?
Lemon leaf garlands can range in price from $40-$100.
How do we make the lemon leaf garland?
Sandwich the lemon leaves together like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
How do you keep the garland fresh?
Michael says soaking the leaves in water before making the garland is key to locking in moisture. He also likes misting them every other day to keep them fresh.
