Homemade cranberry and cinnamon decorations

October 14, 2019

As this year is flying by at an alarming rate - I thought I'd share some of my past home-made decorations with you. I have gone for the rustic, natural look.


All you will need is:


Galvanised wire (bought in Poundstretcher)


Ribbon or string


Cranberries (about £2 per box)


Cinnamon sticks 


A bit of patience (threading the cranberries takes time)


I ended up bending a length of wire around a star shaped cookie cutter, but you could just do circles if you'd prefer, then I cut the wire with strong scissors.

Next skewer the cranberries and slide them along the wire. When you've finished twist the wire together and tie with a ribbon.


You'll probably have loads of cranberries left - I made a garland by threading cranberries onto a length of wire and then stabbing a cinnamon stick with a knife and every now and again adding one on. These look really festive.


I also had some dried oranges left, so I made a few more hanging decorations with those.


I have shared how to make dried orange slices in a previous post - these are pretty satisfying to make. 


This year we want to go extremely festive and have lots of greenery indoors, so I best get planning now!
