 Getting Creative on a Budget: How to Make DIY Popcorn Garland

Getting crafty and creating items to decorate your home can be pretty daunting. And sometimes it gets rather expensive! But this DIY popcorn garland is neither daunting or expensive. So pop up your kernels on the stove and lets get to it!

Supplies are easy. Here’s what you need:

  • a batch of popped popcorn (even day old is great!)
  • a bag of fresh cranberries
  • a needle and thread

DIY Popcorn Garland

 1. Grab the popped popcorn and cranberries and place them in the center of your table so everyone can grab at them.

 3. Thread on the popcorn first. Add a few pieces of popcorn onto the thread and move it down the line.

 4. Follow up with one cranberry. Then repeat. A good ratio is anywhere between 5-10 kernels of popcorn to one cranberry.
