Thread a large needle with clear fishing line, and string fresh cranberries (2 cups of berries yield 1 yard of garland). Drape the garland, like a necklace, over a bust.
Plant an amaryllis bulb in a narrow glass vase. Carefully place the narrow vase inside a larger glass one, filling the empty space between with cranberries.
Festoon glass jugs, such as these antique demijohns, with colorful garlands of fresh cranberries, allowing any excess to puddle at the base for a casual look.
Wrap white ribbon around the wreath, spacing each round 4 to 6 inches apart. Wrap strung cranberries around the wreath, layering over the ribbon.
