On the 1st Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me…….A Cranberry Ornament In A Tree.

I have a love for making things out of fresh items. Like my fresh cedar garland and my mini cedar wreaths.

So going along with the fresh thing I decided to share my Cranberry Ornaments.

They are really easy and so much.  This is one the kids can join in.


Fresh Cranberries


Wire cutters

Twine or Ribbon

Step by Step


Gather your needed materials


Form a section of the wire into the size you would like.  I cut my wire so that it formed a 3″ diameter. 

On the stem part of the cranberry insert the wire and slide the cranberry on to the wire

Continue adding cranberries and sliding further down the wire until you have completely covered the wire

Leave an edge of the wire uncovered so that you can twist the ends together to form a circle


You can add twine hanger or ribbon of your choice.


This little cranberry ornaments can be hung on your tree 


Or how about the back of a chair.

So easy and so fun for the kids and you.

    A great idea! I wonder if you could also hang these OUTSIDE? Would the wildlife enjoy them?

      Hi Lauren Great question. I do put mine outside for the birds once I have enjoyed them inside for a while. Its a nice treat that the birds seem to love. Thanks for stopping by.

    Hmmm…this looks like an easy project. I have cranberries in my fridge to try this, but wondering how long do these keep?

    The red of the cranberries is the perfect look for Christmas! Nice to have a simple yet pretty ornament to enjoy!
