Cranberry Decorating Part III: Cranberry Candle Wraps

If you didn't go for my cranberry candle cups but still want to deck your home this holiday season with some fruity accents, this easy project is for you. You can perk up any place that needs some color with these flexible cranberry garlands, which can be wound around candles, candlestick bases, or even chandeliers.

Supplies:

  • Fine gauge craft wire (.003 mm)
  • 1 12-oz. bag fresh cranberries
  • Pinecones or acorns, if desired

To learn how to make these versatile wraps,

Here's how:

  1. Cut wire to desired length.
  2. Pierce the wire into the center of a cranberry.
  3. Continue threading berries, bending wire into various shapes as you go.
  4. If desired, alternate cranberries with other items like wooden beads, acorns, or pine cones, making a small hole with a thumbtack or a power drill with a tiny bit.
  5. Bend the end of the wire into a loop, and wrap completed garland around a candle, candlestick, etc.

**Note: After a day or two, the berries will get soft, so you'll want to take them down. But, you can prolong the life of your cranberry wrap by spraying shellac on to the berries after they are strung. Also, don't put the garland onto anything white; it could stain.

So cute. If I used plain pillar candles and not scented jar candles I would be all over this. My mom would love it.
