This is pretty cool. Would be neat for a table, in a small hurricane lampshade or a party. The smell of using an orange and good quality olive oil will leave a warm home smell in the air.
This wreath is so easy to make. Use a dry cleaners coat hanger and bend into a circle leaving the top part that goes over the rod as is. Untwist the area of neck. Push undried leaves through and fill the circle. Twist back together and you can now use the the part that goes over the rod as a hanger. It is suggested that a few light coats of polyurethane be added – this will keep the leaves from crumbling. To change up the look – cover with a thick coat of spray paint.

I always have loved this time of year because we get to consume candy corn. I love candy corn when it is made of real honey instead of cheap sugars for sweetness. This is also done very quickly and is a great snack – Bananas and Candy Corn!!!
You can use a ripe banana and insert the tips of candy corn into the banana. You can also use peanut butter over banana and then insert candy corn. The peanut butter adds two import factors: It tastes better with peanut butter and it helps keep the banana from going bad quickly since air is kept from it.
