I hung a wreath for the chickens last week but I decided the girls needed some more festiveness. I wanted to make something that could also be a little treat for them.
I started with a bowl of fresh cranberries, some plastic thread and a tapestry needle.
I put the cranberries on one at a time, which took a while but was kind of meditative.
One bag of cranberries made about 7 feet of garland.
I used some ribbon to tie it up around the edges of the run at a height where the birds can reach the berries.
You could also add in some popcorn to your garland if you wanted - that's a treat our girls love!
