Popcorn Garland

$9.95

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays! All of the traditions, family gatherings and time of reflection, makes it a very special time.

There is nothing more endearing to me then when I see a Christmas tree wrapped in popcorn garland. It is so old-fashioned and so American; to me, a Christmas tree isn’t fully decorated until it is surrounded by popcorn garland!

Stringing popcorn garland is a fun activity but it can be very time consuming. Also, unfortunately, the popcorn tends to be brittle and therefore the garland does not last too long.

Our faux popcorn garland is the perfect solution if you love the traditional look of a popcorn garland, but don’t have the time to re-string it year after year. Very realistic looking, no one would ever suspect that it wasn’t real popcorn!

Celebrate an American tradition and make sure you that when you decorate your tree, you have a couple of our faux popcorn garlands to complete the look!

If you like the look of traditional Christmas decor, then there is nothing like having popcorn garland wrapping around your Christmas tree! Stringing popcorn for garland is a fun activity but the popcorn can be very brittle and ultimately does not usually last for very long.

Aside from being a fun activity, though, it does take an investment of time if you were to do it every year. If you love the look of popcorn garland, but really don’t have the time to do it over and over, year after year, then you will love our faux popcorn garland! So realistic, the popcorn looks like you just popped it and because it is faux, you will have it year after year!

For a great look, alternate popcorn garlands with our popcorn and chestnut garlands. Each garland measures approximately 70″ long.

Decorating a Christmas tree usually involves spools of electric Christmas lights, store-bought and homemade ornaments, with a star or angel resting at the top. Yet these traditions are a result of modern conveniences. When Christmas Trees first rose to prominence in the United States, they were often decorated with fruits and other items. From this, a tradition of stringing popcorn and cranberries into a garland that wrapped around the tree was born.

How did popcorn end up on our Christmas trees? While its origins are not completely known, the art of stringing popcorn on a tree most likely came from the fact that when Christmas trees first became widespread, people didn’’t have much to decorate them with. They borrowed from the German tradition of putting fruit on the trees and because cranberries are harvested through November, it’s most likely that they were strung with popcorn as they were still in season.**
