Foodie decorations are the perfect way to merge two of our favourite things: food and decor! This year we’re sharing our favourite food decorations to get the creative juices going this Christmas.
Dried orange wreath
- Thinly slice 10 oranges. Place on an oven rack and bake at your oven’s lowest setting for three hours.
- Tie sprigs of greenery together, then secure the bundles along a base wreath using straight pins.
- Use the pins to attach the fruit slices to the wreath, overlapping the pieces over the greenery to cover the entire foam wreath.
- Secure a ribbon or twine to the wreath to attach it to the door or wall.
2. Pop corn garland
- Thread heavy string through the eye of a needle, making sure to tie a knot at the end.
- String popped, cooled popcorn onto the string, pushing the needle directly through the roundest part of the kernel. Continue threading until the string is filled.
- Tie a knot at the end to secure the popcorn. Drape loosely on the tree.
Sugared cranberries garland
- Combine fresh cranberries with white craft glue in a large resealable plastic bag until each berry is well coated.
- Sprinkle over a generous amount of granulated sugar and toss the cranberries a second time to coat.
- Shake out onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper to dry for a few hours.
- Thread string through a needle and carefully thread the cranberries on one at a time until the garland is filled. Tie a knot at the end of the string, then drape the garland over your tree.
