We love homemade Christmas ornaments and projects. This year we have been busy making our own Holiday Garland for our tree thanks to JOLLY TIME Pop Corn and Habelman Cranberry. We have attempted to make a popcorn chain for our tree a few years ago and I think we only got 20 or so pieces on our string and most of those “mysteriously” disappeared within a couple of days after. I am not sure if my son loved eating the popcorn more or stringing it, but he has asked to make another chain every year since. So we were super excited when we had a chance to test out this Holiday Gift Pack and make our own cranberry popcorn garland with it. My kiddos think the cranberries make it “more real”, which I have to admit they are right!
JOLLY TIME has banded together with another centenarian, family-owned business, Habelman Cranberry, to help you pass along a holiday tradition so antiquated that it began when there weren’t lights to put on trees: Stringing cranberry popcorn garlands. Festive and family-friendly, this beautiful craft will be sure to bring together the people who make it, as well as those you gift it to.
We had a lot of fun spending time together stringing our garland. The kiddos loved to create their own patterns and even did awesome at taking turns. I loved how the whole house slowed down when we were making them and oh, the fun conversations we had! They told everyone who came over about their “Christmas Popcorn and Cranberry Chain.” We even had friends and cousins who loved to help out when they stopped by for a visit.
I would like to say that it looked like this all the time…
And I just have to add this one in below. I love that I caught this cute girl’s attitude! 🙂
This is what I want every year… making some fun memories together. I am thinking next year we are going to give some holiday memory making in a jar to our neighbors instead of goodie plates. Isn’t this popcorn jar such a cute gift idea?
