For that special Christmas party, why not give your guests a Christmas corsage? Various kinds of corsages can be fashioned from a little greenery, fruits and berries, cones, pipe cleaners and ribbons.
One simple yet attractive corsage can be made by starting with a small spray of white cedar (about 3 1/2 inches wide by 5 to 5 1/2 inches long). Next, lay on a sprig of fir about 2 1/2 inches wide and 4 to 4 1/2 inches long. Then, wire a single red pine cone or a pair of white spruce cones to it. To complete, add 3 twisted pipe cleaners, as shown, plus a red bow; then wire together.
