Add one more touch to your Golden Maine Christmas tree.
Here's one last craft that we put on our Golden Maine tree that didn't make it into our Down East article on how to give your Christmas tree a Maine theme . We thought we'd share with you the steps to make this beautiful cranberry garland!
What you'll need:
2 bags cranberries
20 yards of gold elastic cord
can of gold spray paint
What to do:
Spread the cranberries in a single layer and spray one side.
Let dry and then flip and spray the other side. You may need to rotate the cranberries multiple times to get good coverage.
Then, simply string on the gold elastic cord and space as desired.
