This past December we were looking for decoration ideas for our Solstice tree in our yard. We decided to make popcorn strings for the tree. Not only would it look nice, but we hoped that some of the birds might get to enjoy it too.
Approximate Time: 1 hour
Yield: 1-2 strings
plain popped popcorn
a long hand-sewing needle
We used an air popper and popcorn seeds to make our popcorn. One batch made an entire stock pot of popcorn.
Decide on how long you want your popcorn string to be and cut that length of thread. Tie a knot at one end of the thread and put the other end through your needle. Carefully push the needle through a piece of popcorn.
Gently push the piece down to the end of the string. Continue until your length of thread is full of popcorn. Tie off the end of the thread and use it to decorate.
