Close-Up of Christmas Wreath Made With Holiday PopcornWhat You’ll Need

One green Styrofoam wreath
One 3-canister set of The Popcorn Factory’s Holiday Assortment
One hot glue gun
Christmas ribbon

Directions

  1. Using a hot glue gun, carefully glue the popcorn onto the Styrofoam wreath, piece by piece. Keep the kernels close together, and use the small pieces of broken popcorn to fill in the gaps. You can mix up the red and green kernels like we did here, or you can separate the colors to create a striped pattern on the wreath. Whatever you do, don’t burn yourself!
  2. Allow the wreath to dry completely. When it’s ready, loop a Christmas ribbon through the top of the wreath and tie it into a bow.
  3. Give your wreath a touch of winter wonder by spraying it with glitter. Then, hang it on your door, above your fireplace or on your window. For even more ideas on how to decorate your house with a wreath, check out this fun blog from 1-800-Flowers.com!

Ho, ho, ho! Now good old Saint Nick can be greeted with a beautiful Christmas wreath when he slides down your chimney!

College Care Packages for Finals

Hello Popcorn Pals!

The Holiday season is upon us! That means the family is home and together, everyone sitting around the fireplace, cups of hot cocoa, building snowmen, warm sweaters and slippers, and watching holiday movies around the clock…that is, after college finals are over.

Probably the most stressful time of the winter season (next to visiting that one weird aunt), college semester finals are a time when most students will be lucky if they even have the time or energy to get in one good meal. Late night study sessions will extend far later than any campus convenience store stays open, and they’ll need something to refuel with when they get that study break craving. Help out your scholar and send them a light, fun snack that they’ll enjoy!

Our popcorn makes the perfect college study break treat. Light, fluffy, and packed with flavor; a few (or more!) handfuls of this treat won’t leave studiers feeling sluggish or too full to concentrate. Plus, they’re great for sharing with a large study group or college roommates. We like to think we’ve perfected the perfect college snack for those final study breaks, with our college survival snack gift tins. Not only do we offer our delicious popcorn flavors in butter, cheese, or secret recipe caramel, we also throw in mouthwatering chocolate chip cookies, savory chips, chocolates, and various candies. All of the essential treats to make your college gift that much sweeter!

These college care packages won’t break the bank either! With a majority of college gifts ranging from $19.99 to $39.99, you can make sure your college kid is eating a tasty snack without having to take out another loan for it. Our exclusively decorated tins and containers can be reused again and again for storage, snack, or even decoration.

Don’t miss out on showing school pride either. Check to see if your college has partnered up with us for a specially decorated tin donning the school colors and mascot! They make for the perfect accessory at any tailgating party or in the stands snack.
