Littletree is pretty excited to be celebrating Christmas this year – she decided to decorate a tree, so we found a fallen branch outside and set it up for her to decorate
We don’t have all that much in the way of decorations, and not much of a budget to buy any, so we took a tip from my lovely friend Gramma Miri (who makes the most amazing custom-made Spirit Hoods) and made Popcorn Garlands to decorate around.
The first step being, of course, making popcorn
But as these things do with Littletree, everything turns to science. She observed the popcorn popping, and wanted to know how it works. YouTube delivered some fine slow motion shots of popcorn popping, which, of course, led us down a slow-motion videos rabbit-hole
But we did eventually make it back to popcorn, and naturally there has to be quality control.
Rigorous scientific testing of every aspect of the popcorn…
Littletree finally stopped eating long enough to actually thread some onto string and make garlands
And it looks great on the tree
