Christmas Cranberry Decor

I love cranberries. They are so versatile. You can load them into glass vases with florals, frozen in ice cubes with mint leaves for gorgeous beverages, or in gorgeous topiaries, like this festive topiary design idea by Budget Wise Home.

However, this year’s christmas tree will don an old classic reimagined. That’s right the cranberry garland. If you choose to go truly “old school” add popcorn (the non-buttered and preferably stale popcorn works best).  Best of all the garland can be put on outdoor trees for birds to feed on. I particularly like this tree from Southern Living with full strands of all cranberries and full strands of all popcorn.

Never made a popcorn-cranberry garland? Learn here. Recruit friends to help! The best “recruits” are kids anxiously awaiting Christmas day, no better project for anxious little hands.  Try out and see, you will one the freshness of the cranberry and the nostalgia of the popcorn.

Personally, I prefer the all cranberry versions. Just check out this gorgeous mantle decked with cranberry garland; beautiful.
