Easy DIY Holiday Decorations: Create your own Garland

One of the easiest ways to decorate your home for the holidays is with garland.  There are dozens of places where a string of natural greens looks fantastic in your home, whether it's going up the banister or framing a door.  Garland does not have to be made from greens though; there are several other do-it-yourself ways to create gorgeous strands to accent your home.  It is even a holiday project you can get your kids involved in!  I remember growing up sitting at the kitchen table with a bowl of popcorn, cranberries and a needle and string in my hands making bets on who could make their garland the longest.

Today's tip of the day is a great gift idea for the children (and adults) in your family!  A perfect hostess present for all of the holiday parties you'll be attending this year!

Popcorn Garland Kit
You will need:
  • Small Box (recycle an old gift box)
  • Package of unpopped popcorn
  • Small back of Cranberries or Red Beads
  • A needle
  • Thread
  • Tissue Paper
  • Tag for the box
Directions:
  • Simply place all items in a box lined with tissue paper.  Fashion a tag as you see in the above photo.  Makes a great hostess gift!
