HOW TO Give faux or­anges and lemons a sug­ared look that will last years. Coat each piece with spray ad­he­sive, then dust with glit­ter. Make enough for a gar­land and for sconce swags. GAR­LAND Start with a real or faux leafy gar­land, such as mag­no­lia, that’s long enough to drape across the man­tel and touch the floor on both sides. Insert the sharp end of skew­ers into fruits; cut skew­ers so they are long enough to insert into the gar­land wire. SCONCE SWAGS Insert screw eyes into the tops of sug­ared fruits. Tie each end of a length of rib­bon to screw eye; drape over light fix­ture.
