Introduction: Metallic Popcorn Strings

Krylon Holiday Decorations Contest

Finalist in the
Krylon Holiday Decorations Contest

This is a super easy twist on the popcorn and cranberry decorations that you string for the tree.

...that's not just me still doing that, right?

Step 1: Materials and Tools

Materials
Popcorn (air popped works best, microwavable popcorn is not recommended)
Cranberries
Krylon Metallic Gold and Silver
Thread

Tools
Beading needle
Scissors (not pictured)
Cardboard Box (not pictured)

Step 2: Spray Paint Corn


Spray paint the popcorn in a cardboard box.

Spray, shake, spray again... 

Let popcorn dry for 20 minutes and repeat until all kernels are covered. 

Step 3: String Corn and Cranberries


Thread needle (18-20 inches is pretty manageable) and tie a cranberry to the end.

String one cranberry between about 10 kernels of corn, tie another cranberry to the finished end and hang on tree.

Enjoy your awesome tree whilst enjoying eggnog and Christmas cookies!

Happy Holidays : )

    Cute, but I guess you couldn't put it on your trees outside since it would make the animals sick if they ate it.

    True - it would also probably fall apart if it got wet.

    Nifty, but wouldn't the smell of the spray paint be a little overpowering in the living room?

    The paint was applied outside and after it dried, the scent had dissipated.

    Avoid children!!! Its danger!

    How cute. And a great idea to spray the popcorn in a box! :D
