Holiday Garlands

To make the garlands, you will need: thread, a needle, and any or all of the following: miniature marshmallows, raisins, uncooked macaroni, candy corn, cheese puffs, licorice bits, oyster or fish-shaped crackers, sliced carrots, cranberries, and/or popcorn.

  1. Thread the needle, double the thread, and tie a large, secure knot at the end.

  2. String the items randomly or in repeating patterns (for example: one cranberry, three marshmallows, two cheesepuffs, repeated again and again). Leave enough room at the end to tie another large, secure knot, then remove the needle and tie the knot.
