DIY Old-Fashioned Popcorn Garland



  • Popcorn
  • Thread
  • Needle
  • Scissors


  1. Make your popcorn. You can do this day of or a few days before.
    • Prepping popcorn in advance allows it to get a bit stale so it isn't so brittle when you're stringing it!
  2. Thread your needle, I like to double mine up. Be sure to tie a solid knot at the end and leave extra thread on each end for attaching to your tree!
  3. Thread a piece and push it all the way to the end, test if your knot is secure. Continue adding popcorn kernels, pushing them down the string once you get a several threaded - it saves time to push several, rather than one-by-one.
  4. Continue threading until you have the desired length. Tie another knot at the end.
  5. Add these garlands to your tree, or hang on your wall and enjoy!
