Learn How to Make A Popcorn Garland
It has been a while since I’ve made some popcorn decorations for Christmas and I’m so excited to show how it’s done to my grandkids. I can still remember when my kids and I made this DIY garland back in the day. There was barely any popcorn left since they kept munching on them. It’s a super easy craft project even kids can make so since my grandchildren are coming over, I’m teaching it to them and maybe you can too!
What you’ll need to make popcorn garland:
- tapestry needle
- heavy duty sewing thread: waxed dental floss or fishing wire
- fresh cranberries (optional)
How To Make A Popcorn Garland:
Step 1: Buy Or Pop Some Popcorn
Buy or pop some popcorn. Let it out for 24 to 48 hours since freshly popped popcorn has a tendency to break easily.
TIP: If you want to use a microwave popcorn, buy the one that doesn’t have butter and salt.
Step 2: Thread Your Needle
Put a heavy duty thread on your needle. You can use either, fishing wire or wax dental floss. Then, tie a fat knot at the one end of the string.
Step 3: Start Stringing The Popcorn
Begin stringing! Push the needle straight to the middle of each popcorn piece and carefully push it to the edge of the thread before adding another one.
TIP: If you’re going to use cranberries, wear old clothes and lay out drop cloths since the juice can stain. Alternate it with your popcorn.
Step 4: Reach Your Desired Length

Keep stringing until you’ve reached your desired length and tie a knot at the end. Now all that’s left to do is hang it in your home or around your Christmas tree and you’re done!
