  • 2 or more boxes Orville Redenbacher Tender White Popcorn
  • 1 or 2 bags of fresh cranberries
  • Needle
  • Thread


Let’s Get Started

  1. Start with 4' strands of thread. 
  2. Thread needle and tie off at one end.

Now for the Work

  1. Strong popcorn and cranberries until a few inches from the end. Tie off or tie to another garland.
  2. Repeat until you have enough garland for your tree (see notes).


If I have my tree up with lights on, I add each strand of garland starting at the top and tie them together as we finish.

You can use other popcorn. I just found that Oriville's Tender White works great and is pure white.
