9 Holiday Decorations We’d Rather Eat

It’s that time of year again to decorate the house for the holidays. I am usually really good with decorating the weekend after Thanksgiving, but not this year. I can’t believe Christmas is so close and I still don’t have one little decoration pulled out. With being on vacation all of last week, I’ve gotten a little behind, but I do have a plan. We’re getting the tree Saturday and spending the afternoon decorating it and the rest of the house. I’ll pull out all my old decorations, and we’ll make a few of our own, like popcorn garlands and popcorn balls — that is, if we don’t eat all the popcorn first.

Here are 9 more tasty holiday decorations we’d honestly rather eat, but aren’t they cute?
