Ideas for Christmas

Trim the house in the real old-fashioned way with gay red cranberries strung with thread and needle on the Christmas tree. Alternate a piece of snowy white popcorn for contrast.

Also for dangling on the green branches, make four inch circlets of cranberries twisted with silver Christmas rope or tinsel strips.

Make a cranberry Santa. A circle of berries on wire makes the body and three berries make each arm and leg. A round cardboard circle topped with a paper red hat needs but a fluff of cotton whiskers to complete Saint Nick.
