It is a great for elderly or the disabled and ideal for decorating large trees.
What you need
Blunt darning needle for threading
Using a needle, thread the fishing line through each piece of popcorn. Continue until you have a garland long enough to decorate a tree or room then tie a knot to secure.
Try using colored popcorn for a festive look.
There are a couple of ways to successfully color popcorn.
1: Add food color to the oil prior to popping which gives a very faint color finish.
2: Add powdered food coloring (found at cake supply stores) to popped corn for a more intense color.
3: Add a little water to some food coloring and pour into a bag. Add the popped corn and toss till it is well coated.
4: If the popcorn is NOT going to be eaten use a powdered poster paint which can be bought from a toy store or the school may already have some. Then toss the powder over your popped corn. This gives off a very very vibrant color but it is NOT edible. Generally these powder paints are actually non toxic so no harm would actually be done, but still not really edible.
