How To Make A Popcorn Garland For Your Tree This Christmas

Ditch plastic waste for a natural Christmas popcorn garland made with cranberries and (you guessed it) popcorn...

Sticking with the garland theme, replace tinsel and fairy lights with a popcorn and cranberry garland.

These are perfect to wrap around your Christmas tree this year.

Making a Popcorn Garland


Popcorn kernels
Cranberries / dried cranberries
Needle and thread


  1. First pop the kernels. Save one bowl for the DIY and one bowl to snack on while you’re making it.
  2. Lay out the popcorn and cranberries in the pattern that you want to follow. It’s easier to start and finish with a piece of popcorn.
  3. Take a length of thread that’s a little longer than the length you want the garland.
  4. Push the needle and thread through the first piece of popcorn and then wrap it around and tie a loose, but secure, double knot.
  5. Continue to thread through your pieces of popcorn and cranberries in the pattern that you’ve chosen.
  6. Once you’ve reached the last piece of popcorn, thread it through and then tie the string back around and into a double knot as you did with the first.
  7. You can wrap your popcorn garland around the tree as you would with tinsel and it’ll last the whole season
