If you are looking for a country farmhouse garland to use on your family tree full of handmade ornaments from your kids and grandkids, this yarn popcorn garland is the perfect thing! It only requires jute twine and chunky yarn!
You could also scrunch the popcorn together, or even put red beads in-between each piece of “popcorn.”
But if you have cats, dogs, and other pets around in your home, who you think might eat the popcorn off the tree, this is a much better option.

WITH THIS PROJECT YOUR CHILD WILL LEARN…
- How to measure using a ruler.
- How to tie knots.
WE LOVED MAKING THIS GARLAND FOR OUR MINI FAMILY CHRISTMAS TREE FULL OF HANDMADE ORNAMENTS. HERE IS WHAT WE USED TO MAKE IT:
The first thing you are going to do is cut the twine as long as you’d like your garland to be. Then have your child or grandchild measure a 5-inch piece of yarn and cut several of them. Then put one strand of yarn four inches away from the end of the twine.
Next, have your child or grandchild tie the yarn into a knot around the rope!
Then with scissors, trim the edges of the yarn off to create a circular shape to look like a piece of popcorn!
How cute do these look! Continue adding “popcorn” and placing them as close together as you would like. I placed mine every 4″ apart. But as stated above, you can place close together, or add red beads in-between. It is totally up to you and the look you are going for.
Last, wrap it around your Christmas tree and take that Pinterest-worthy family photo with your kids or grandkids!
With this hung up Santa will surely know that this tree was decorated with love!
