Christmas Cranberry Craft

Who's ready for the most simple Christmas craft ever?! No, seriously this will take you a whole five minutes and give your holiday decor a fun creative boost!  I was given an extra bag of cranberries from my mother and was originally going to put them in my mason jar of of birthday flowers (my birthday flowers always resemble Christmas flowers anyway LOL) when I thought that seemed super unoriginal.  Then I thought, I still absolutely love my wooden beads I made months ago and figured I would try the same idea out with the cranberries.  
Materials Needed: -bag of cranberries -needle -fishing line

All you are going to do is sting the needle through each cranberry until you get to your desired length.
Once I had my cranberry strand long enough I simply tied the two ends of fishing line together into a knot. 
At the end you will want to lightly rinse the strand and let dry on some paper towels.  This helps remove any juices from stringing the needle.
 Now just decorate as you would! Told you..…
