I measured out my string for a rough idea of how long I wanted the garland. (I always use dental floss when I make a garland, by the way.)
Then, using a medium sized needle, I strung the bay leaves and cranberries, making sure I started and finished with the leaves.
Doesn't it look gorgeous draped underneath my mantel up against the stark white brick?
This project totally brought back memories for me of stringing cranberries and popcorn for our Christmas tree growing up. Did anyone else ever do that?
