Christmas Crafts: Cranberry Garland

It’s Christmas eve and all the wrapping, cleaning and cooking is ready for the big day tomorrow. So I decided to have a quick crafting time and make some festive but simple cranberry garlands.

Simply take a box of fresh cranberries and thread them on to red thread with a needle.


Push the needle through each cranberry vertically- through each end – rather than through the middle.


Then knot each end, leaving extra thread. Use this extra thread to create a loop each end. These loops can then be used to hang your garland.

I hung mine over the fireplace.



Several fresh cranberries (exact amount depends on how long you want you garland)
Red sewing thread.
Normal needle
