Krylon Metallic Gold and Silver

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.
