Cranberry Crafts

The first thing I think of when I think of decorating with cranberries is of course…popcorn and cranberry garland for the tree. Children love to string popcorn, just add a little cranberries for color. Or you can also make these:

Idea 1: Indoor Cranberry Candle

  1. Lay cut greens in the bottom of a hurricane glass.
  2. Fill with water.
  3. Float cranberries on top.
  4. Put a floating candle in the middle.

Idea 2: Outdoor Cranberry Candle

  1. Pop a candle into a glass hurricane.
  2. Pile faux snow around the candle.
  3. Top with cranberries.
  4.  Make several and line them up along a path.

Idea 3: Sugared Cranberry Candles

1. Line a narrow tray with five colorful candles

2. Fill the space around the candles with sugared cranberries.

3. Pop in a few pine sprigs for flair.

Idea 4: Mini Christmas Tree Bucket

1. Position mini Christmas trees in a tin bucket

2. Fill the bucket with cranberries until you reach the rim.

3. Decorate the mini Christmas trees with garlands, tiny ornaments, and other decorations.

Idea 5: Cranberry Napkin Ring Wreath

1. Shape 2 inches of wire into a circle for the base.
