How to Make a Popcorn/Cranberry Garland

In past decades–before Christmas decorations could be picked up at everything from a hardware store to Target to an online website–families made their own decorations, for the house, the landscaping, and the tree. One of the most popular decorations–typically used on a tree–was a garland made of popcorn, or popcorn and another element, perhaps a berry of some kind. This video brings back the old skills and shows how to make a popcorn and cranberry garland. It’s a project that depends on a little bit of prep and active involvement, but it’s a great way to get the family together to enjoy the holiday and build not just decorations but some memories. Time to learn (or re-learn) an old-fashioned holiday skill.
