When it comes to seasonal decor, I have a few favorite places to decorate. Number one is, of course, our front porch. Number two is my dining room table. Even though we don’t use the dining room all that often, I have a direct view from my kitchen, so I really do enjoy whatever centerpiece is there. This lambs ear garland centerpiece idea is loosely based on the eucalyptus garland I made last year. The process is a bit different since I used faux lambs ear and the eucalyptus was fresh. 

Lambs Ear Garland Assembly

Putting together this lambs ear garland is really quick and easy. Gather your lambs ear, cotton boll garland or stems, and some short pieces of florist wire. The florist wire pieces should be around 5 inches long.

I stood at my dining room table so I could better guage the length of the garland. One by one, I wired the lambs ear stems together, making a long row. The stems will overlap, but don’t overlap the lambs ear.

When the garland is finished, place it in the center of your table. Nestle the cotton boll garland in and around the leaves. Tuck and fluff until you like the way it looks from both sides of the table. If you are using candlesticks or hurricanes, place them now.

The last thing is to add some mini pumpkins on both sides of the garland. Stagger them so they are not in a straight row. 

Lambs Ear Garland Tips:

  • If you can’t find a cottonboll garland, just use cotton boll stems. You can either nestle them into the greenery and let them be, or you can wire them in.
  • This centerpiece idea can be made with any kind of greenery. If you have something on hand, give it a try. Also, the greenery doesn’t have to match. Mixing greenery stems would add just as much interest and texture. 
  • Substitution ideas for the cotton bolls: Sunflowers, mums, gold or orange berries, mini faux gourds.
