Get the Look
Here, we strung lady apples and cranberries, but you could also try kumquats. (Use fresh cranberries, not frozen.) Place a single strand of apples in the center of the chandelier; then follow with a strand of cranberries along the outer edges. Tie a bow at the top of the chandelier, and allow streamers to hang. Depending on how fresh the fruit is, this arrangement should last 7 to 10 days.
