How To Make Popcorn And Cranberry Garland

Popcorn and Cranberry Garland

This is so much fun! I have always wondered how to make popcorn and cranberry garland. Tonight we tried it. What a blast. It is so easy!


Popped popcorn (air popped and cooled is best)
Cranberries (NOT frozen!)
Sewing needles
Thread or fishing wire

Popcorn and Cranberry Garland

How to make popcorn and cranberry garland:


  • Thread your needles. One for each person.
  • Make the string short enough to work with. If you have younger kids make it just over a foot.
  • Tie a knot at the end.
  • If you are using cranberry or other items, decide if you want a pattern.
  • Carefully poke the needle through the popcorn and guide it to the end of the thread till it meets the knot.
  • Continue with the popcorn,  alternating cranberries if you desire, until you reach about a hands length from the end.

  • Cut off the needle the thread close to the needle.
  • Tie a knot.
  • Connect the strands when done.
  • Decorate the tree.
