Leftover Cranberries from Thanksgiving or Christmas? NO problem! Here are a few ideas for your leftover cranberry sauce.
I made this recipe for Cranberry Sauce this year.
Crockpot Cranberry Sauce
It was FABULOUS! I made a batch a week before Thanksgiving to see if it was the one I wanted to share with everyone else. Sure enough! It was! I used it up in a few creative ways because I knew I would be making more in just a few days for the real Turkey Day. To use it up, I came up with quite a few goodies!

Leftover Fresh Cranberries for Christmas Decor
Start with a bag of fresh cranberries, a thick sewing needle and heavy nylon thread. Measure a length of thread proportionate to the area you are decorating. Thread the first cranberry, loop the bottom of the thread up and over it and tie it in a knot. (If you are having trouble pushing the needle through the cranberries, try using a push pin first.) String the rest of the cranberries onto the thread. Finish by tying the last piece on the same way you did the first cranberry. Cut away any extra thread. Decorate with your cranberry garland!
