Craft a Christmas Garland from Cranberries, Popcorn, and Cookies

Make a charming, old-fashioned looking Christmas garland by stringing cranberries, popcorn, and glitter-covered cookies together.

What You Need:

  • Royal icing; food coloring
  • Star-shape purchased cookies
  • Edible glitter; fresh cranberries
  • Popcorn; 28-gauge silver wire
  • 1/2-inch-wide satin ribbon, cut into 12-inch lengths

How to Make It:

  1. Tint icing in desired colors with food coloring. Frost cookies. While frosting is wet, sprinkle with glitter. Let dry.
  2. Alternately string cranberries and popcorn onto wire. Allow a little slack at each end for hanging loops.
  3. Use a piece of wire to poke a hole in the top of each cookie; string a length of ribbon through each hole. At desired intervals, slide the cranberry and popcorn apart slightly and tie a cookie in between.
