In all my years of crafting, I have never strung popcorn and cranberries to use as garland...until today! I don't know why! It was so simple, and with very little effort, you end up with beautiful and inexpensive holiday decor to use in greenery, window framing, or even your Christmas tree.

Through the pandemic, our next door neighbors have remained in our bubble, so I invited them over for a little garland party. This would be a great activity for an advent calendar or just a blustery December afternoon. Make a pot of tea, turn on the Christmas carols, and gather a few friends to make this beautiful and natural holiday garland.
