My mormor was very particular about her holiday decor. She didn’t like anything plastic or too colorful. I have a vivid memory of the two of us sitting at a table making these very simple garlands. I made the small oat bouquets while she was tying them onto string. After a few hours we had a long garland that we hung on the tree.
Dried oat straw
- Cut the top of the oats and make them into small bouquets. You will need like 10-12 straws for each.
- Tie each bouquet to the string about 6-8 inches apart. Make it as long as you want and hang on tree.
