How-to: Painted Popcorn Garland

thread popcorn onto garland with needle and threadThread the end of a spool of string with a hand-sewing needle. If you have to shop for a needle, especially if you plan to make a popcorn garland with a child, then look for a large needle, which is quite manageable even for small-ish fingers.

I like to wait to cut the thread off of the spool until I’m ready to tie the garland off. This also gives you some wiggle room–if you reach the end of the thread and haven’t finished your garland, tie it off, unwind another length of thread from the spool, cut it off, and begin again from the other end!

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.
