What You Need
Two bags of fresh cranberries, red-and-white baker’s twine, scissors, craft needle, box of candy canes (you’ll need four canes per place setting), Velcro strips, place cards, marker
Three Easy Ideas
❶ Cranberry Garland
Popcorn? Not this year! String a few berries here and there on baker’s twine that’s appropriately peppermint-colored.
❷ Candy Stand
Upend canes and secure to make a place card holder that really earns its stripes.
❸ Sweet Centerpiece
Raid the candy aisle for a display that would make Willy Wonka proud.
