Method

Cut a 3m length of kitchen string and tie a fat knot 10cm from one end. Thread the other end onto a big, blunt needle, such as a tapestry needle. Thread on bay leaves, popcorn and cranberries, in a random pattern. Tie off when you get to the other end, leaving enough string to hang it up with.

I tried this but the neighbours goats all came round because apparently, goats are pretty partial to fresh cranberries. then I tried it with grapes and all of the nieghbourhoods squirels turned up... the rule is, dont hang fruit in your hall, or you'll end up with it looking like a Zoo.
