Several years ago, we wanted an old-fashioned Christmas tree at work and decided it needed a popcorn garland. I had seen one years ago, with just popcorn that was dipped in wax. So, I came up with a triple-dipped garland and added cranberry beads. I also sell these at my shows and they sell extremely well, I have mine packaged in a tin. I have been using mine over 2 years, this will be the third Christmas my tree will have the popcorn garland on it.
|I use the cranberry wooden bead garlands, 10 lb. fishing line and a big-eyed needle. I always buy my garlands after Christmas when they are 50 percent off or more.|
My husband even liked the garland, I had to make one for his tree in his office last year. I also buy my tins after Christmas, I got most of mine for 25-50 cents each last. year.
If you are ever in the Hilliard, Florida area (it is not far from Jacksonville, FL) you need to go by B & B Crafts-they have a primitive craft shop, it is wonderful. Mary and I delivered an order to her today and fell in love with her shop. We plan to go back and do some Christmas shopping soon. Well, I need to get back to my crafting. Bye, Cyndy
