This is Day 10 of our 12 Days of Christmas Decorations series … check out all of the posts here.
Maybe this is odd, but I love making crafts out of food! I think it’s the teacher’s kid in me. Maybe it’s just the thrill of making something beautiful out of an absolutely ordinary item that gets me. This year I’ve been focusing on adding pops of red throughout my neutral rustic decor, and I knew cranberries were just the right thing to get me in the holiday spirit. This beautiful DIY Cranberry Monogram is perfect for leaning on the mantel, hanging as a wreath, or displaying on your favorite credenza. Keep reading for step-by-step instructions on how to make your own!
I love this! I love using real cranberries for decorations this time of year! What a great great idea that I discovered on moonlight and mason jars! :-)

Love red, love cranberries, love letters and fonts – did you make this just for me?
My first question was How long will it last? so I’ll be interested to see you final update on that. It is just so pretty with all the different tones that even if it’s just a short time it’s worth it! That said, do you think beads in various shades of red might work too? What I love most about this is the variation in colour, you wouldn’t want to loose that with a substitute product – humm, food for thought! (see what I did there!)
I’m so glad you love it, Julie! I do think small beads could work – and it would be easy to make them different shades of red.
Mine is still going strong. I’ll be posting an update when it seems like it’s starting to go bad.
