Christmas Garland Made with Fresh Cranberries and Limes
String fresh cranberries and lime slices on dental floss to create a colorful garland for the Christmas tree.
What You Need:
- Fresh cranberries
- Fresh limes
- Sharp knife
- Large needle
- Waxed dental floss
How to Make It:
- Wash the cranberries and the limes. Slice the limes into thin slices. Set aside.
- Thread the needle with the floss.

- Tie a knot at the end, leaving at least 12 inches of floss for tying to the tree.
I really want to make a memory for my kids and share some LOVE this Holiday Season. It has been a couple of years since we did not have major drama at the Holidays. Hopefully this year we will have a mellow Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year.
When we lost our home, we lost all our holiday decorations and our little lit tree. This year my mom is loaning us a 4 foot table top tree. We have a nice little nook with a mirrored background that we can place the tree into. We have no decorations so I decided the kids and I will make them. I found this Cranberry and Lime Garland and I think we will make this on Thanksgiving. I will post pics and you can see the progress of our Holiday Decor in the making!
I have been down with the sickness the past few days and I have NO energy. I feel like I have been steamrolled and can hardly move. My eyes are blurry and my head is pounding which does not make make for a very good photo editing experience. I have a couple photo shoots to edit and need to get back to feeling myself!
I took a 3 hour rest today and had to get up only because the noise level in our tiny apartment home was growing louder and louder. I was curious as to why everyone in the house was making SO much NOISE. So, I got up to find out that my some kind of wicked force has taken over my children and has made them all bicker and fight. Just when I need them to be lovely well behaved kids - they choose to lose their ever loving minds! Nice.
Thankfully my husband is making a meatloaf that my friend Trudi gave us. He is making baked potatoes and biscuits to go along with it. Thank goodness! I have no energy to cook for this always hungry troop of guys!
I pray that I will be well by Wednesday as that is the day the little guys have their Thanksgiving Feasts at school. I would love to go and take photos. I'll keep you posted!
