This year I wanted to come up with something different for my Halloween display. That is when Genius struck and I came up with the Halloween Popcorn Garland. Inspired by the Christmas popcorn Garland.
The difference between my garland and a Christmas garland is that instead of cranberries I used raisins. This project was so simple and it turned out so well. I love the simplicity of it. Seriously, anyone can do this. Even small children.
I Simply used popped white popcorn, and raisins. Nothing special really. I was going to add in some candy corn, but no matter how I tried to pierce it with my needle it would just crumble. So I decided they would just make a better crafting snack.
I chose brown thread to go with the raisins and the smallest needle I could find. If you plan on eating your garland you can always use dental floss or food safe thread. Since I don’t plan on eating mine I just went with what I had on hand.
**Pro Tip, have a paper towel handy to wipe the needle after piercing the raisins, because the needle gets pretty sticky and makes it hard to put through the popcorn.
This project was so quick and so much fun. I made my garland about three feet long to go over this display on my bookshelf, but it wouldn’t be hard to make it much longer. I am so very proud of it. And it cost about $1. Which is one of my favorite parts about it.
