Why buy it when you can DIY it? Packing peanuts are a common household item people save or receive during the holidays when getting shipments at home. Instead of stringing popcorn as garland, think packing peanuts instead. Use a needle and thread to string each packing peanut one by one, then decorate the tree or mantel with your lightweight (and free) garland. Have fun! Alternate white, green and pink Styrofoam packing peanuts to make interesting patterns.
