Hi everybody, my name is Angela Pugh. I'm here today on behalf of Expert Village to
teach you how to create Christmas tree garland out of popcorn. Let's take a quick lesson
on threading this needle, shall we? First of all you want to be sure that your string
doesn't have any frayed edges, a nice way to do that is to just smooth it down with
your fingers. Some people like to lick their fingers and they take the moisture and smooth
it down, some people take their scissors and cut it at an angle, but you definitely want
to be sure that the point is as sharp as it can be. Then, take your thread, position it
ever so carefully right at the entrance, then you want to take your thread, position so
carefully right at the eye, steady hand, and pull it through. Once you get it through,
stop it maybe half way and just let the rest come through so that all of your garland pieces
are attached to the spool.
