Don’t throw your garland away when you’re done with it… hang it outside for the birds & squirrels.
When stringing popcorn for garland, let it sit for a couple of days to get stale. Stale popcorn is easier to string. (I sure wish I’d known that last year! We made popcorn and cranberry garland. It was very pretty!)
To make a popcorn garland just take a needle and heavy or double thread and start stringing the popcorn or anything on it. Of course cranberries look pretty with the popcorn but you can use other things like dried apple pieces. This is also a great project to have the kids or guests do on Thanksgiving day or week end. Then it will be ready for when you go to decorate the tree.
