Hi friends! You guys know how much I adore simple and easy craft projects that can be done on a whim. Well, nothing is easier than these fresh cranberry balls, and can be mindlessly done while watching your favorite Hallmark Christmas movies on the couch 😉
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own…
- fresh cranberries and lots of them! It takes about 3/4 of a bag for each ball you make.
- styrofoam balls
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
Then all you do is start in the middle of the ball, glue a straight line down (about 2 inches) and then start popping on your cranberries.
It doesn’t hurt to have a little feline furry helper as well 🙂 She was very excited about all those balls and cranberries!
Once you go around the entire ball with your line of cranberries, start a new line, and a new line, and a new line… until your entire styrofoam ball is covered.
Instant holiday cheer! It doesn’t get simpler than that and I think it’s super festive in an elegant way! I bet you could even turn these into ornaments if you wanted to by hot glueing an eye hook into the ball and then tying a string or ribbon to it. Hmmm…I may do that now 😉
I just love decorating with natural elements this time of year, don’t you? I’d love to hear how your decorating is coming along either by commenting below or on my Facebook page!
