This is fun, when the kids were little we would string Pop corn and cranberries and use them to decorate the tree and after the holiday we would hang them outside for the birds

Or decorate your trees out side for the Birds

How to Make Cranberry-Popcorn Garland Bird Feeder

Step-by-Step

  1. After popping the popcorn, let it sit out for a day to get stale; fresh popcorn crumbles.
  2. Use good judgment in how old your child needs to be to handle a sewing needle, and supervise them well. For a very young child, you can set them to the task of alternately handing you cranberries and popcorn.
  3. Waxed dental floss works great, because it is less-prone to breakage, and the addition of the wax makes it easier to slide the cranberries along.
  4. Lay out long lengths of thread. Tie a knot at one end, and thread the other end through the needle. The individual segments can be tied together when you’re finished, but be sure to leave a couple inches of thread at the end of each segment.
  5. Push the needle through the cranberry and slide it down the length of the thread to the knotted end. Then do the same with a piece of popcorn. Alternate popcorn and cranberries until the segment is finished.

    Lastly, tie the segments together, and hang the garland.
  6. After Christmas, send the kids out with the garland to decorate any shrubs or trees around your residence. A small child will get a lot of pleasure out of seeing the birds dine on the garland he’s hung out.
