Christmas Cranberry-Popcorn Garland

What would an American Christmas be without trying out some of the American traditions? Making a garland for the christmas tree out of popcorn and cranberries is one of these traditions. It might take a little bit of time, but it is very simple and looks so cute around the christmas tree.

Just be aware that if you have a cat it will not make it easy to make the garland as it will try to play with it. Your boyfriend might be another challenge, as mine was constantly eating the popcorn away. But if you master these challenges, it will be worth it :)

All you need:

  • Cranberries (fresh)
  • Popcorn (best to use one without butter)
  • Yarn and needle

How to do it:

Take the yarn, best if it is white and unwaxed, and make a big knot at the one end (I did several knots to make it bigger). Then start the garland by threading the popcorn and cranberries. I used 3 white popcorns and then 2 small red cranberries. You can use whatever pattern you like, whether you like it even, or more white or more red or completely unpredictable. Make it as long as you want. You can also do several small garlands. When you are done, make another big knot at the end.

Decorate your Christmas tree or your front porch with it.
