Index cards or photographs
Safety pens or paper clips
Pop your popcorn and let it sit for a day or so. This will make the popcorn stale and less crumbly.
Cut a long piece of string and fold it in half to make it twice as durable. Look for pieces of popcorn with a thick middle and stick your needle through. Use a thimble or the table to push the needle through tough decorations, such as candies or cranberries. Remember to use more popcorn then heavier decorations or else the string is going to have a hard time staying on the tree! Add glitter or food dye if you wish. If you run out of string, simply knot it off then make another piece and tie the two together.
Take your index cards and punch a hole at the top. Decorate the card with different dates of special events, such as your first date, your first kiss, the date you proposed, etc. Or you can use photographs of you two at those events. (Make a duplicate photo– don’t punch a hole in the original.) Add the card or photo anywhere on the string using a paperclip or safety pin.
Now decorate your tree with it and sit back, reminiscing about your relationship.
