I used my Ella Rae Classic Merino to make this piece of popcorn, but it's certainly a giant-sized kernel that even Orville Redenbacher would envy! If you want it more lifelike, I would definitely use a much lighter-weight wool yarn ... maybe even fingering weight ... and smaller needles, too ... like a size 5.
The cranberries are wet felted. String them together on a piece of waxed thread.
Enjoy! Just don't eat them!
