OLD SHAVER ACCEPTED IN TRADE SHAVE1 HfAOQUARTEftS DELICATE TREES — Christmas tries of nylon net In brilliant shades trimmed with sparkling ornaments have been made by Mrs. Raymond Asp, left, and Mrs. Bryan Elmer, to decorate their homes. CHRISTMAS DESIGNS — Mrs. Stanley Budd stands before the mantel in her livingroom, where she has placed a frost- ed glass madonna under an arch encrest- ed with colored beads. Christmas Season Brings Out New Ideas in Home Decoration el, 18 inches high, placed in A candle-holder or wooden base. Us* ing two yards of nylon net in gorgeous colors, they gather Up 54- inch long strips cut to various widths, secure them with rubber binders and place them over the dowel, With that done, the designers attach with needle and thread, glistening tree ornaments in any color and size they choose. The net cornea In brilliant shades Of red, turquoise and blue as well as pastels so the choice of color combinations is excellent. Mrs. Asp also has made a larg* sunburst which hangs above the fireplace. She said she had four hours of fun making it with gold foil pieces cut from a newspaper pattern and sewn to a cardboard backing. There are 64 points in the Sunburst, centered with nine gold balls, Mrs. Asp's mantel also holds feathery angel figures branches of green and colored ornaments. Hanging beside the fireplace are three red-white-and-green stock- Ings, handknit with the name Peggy, Steve and Jany, so Santa won't be confused next week. By PAT ERDMAN More than any other time of the year, the Christmas season brings out new ideas in table centerpieces, arrangements for the fireplace mantel and decorations for all sections of the home. If a woman has an eight-room house to trim or one corner of a small apartment, she's likely to give a lot of thought to the project. She may have a plan that's become a tradition in her family or she may search for a new and different display each year. Some women buy;their holiday atmosphere "readymade" while others find pleasure in "doing-it- themselves." The Stanley Budds at 1008 Lyndale have taken prizes for their outdoor decorating in past years, but the interior of their home also is unusually pretty. Across the mantel and around the large mirror above it, Mrs. Budd has placed white flocked boughs and angel figures she carved from plastic foam and dressed with gold mesh gowns and white feather wings. Madonna Beneath Arch At one side, a frosted glass madonna stands beneath an arch encrested with beads of many colors, shapes and sizes. Mrs. Budd used plastic foam for the arch base, carefully attaching the design in beads with corsage and map pins. The figure is placed atop a large glass bowl which is filled with blue spun glass and lighted. Four glass angels riding cotton clouds are suspended from the ceiling. You don't doubt her, when Mrs. Budd says it represents hours of work. Mrs. W. G. MacLaren, S ou th Kenwood, brought ideas of the space age into one of her holiday table centerpieces. She made "satellites" of small rubber balls and round toothpicks and then tucked them into white flocked evergreens surrounding a large white candle. To make the satellites, Mrs MacLaren dipped the picks in light blue enamel, sprinkled them with glitter and stood them in a piece of plastic foam to dry. The ball was decorated the same before they were joined. Whole Family Worked A friend from Summitt, Minn. who was a guest at the MacLaren home on Thanksgiving Day, offered the idea and the whole family had a hand in the decorating project. Another family friend took the idea to Stacyville and now several 4-H members there are making the satellites for December projects. A good decorating idea travels fast. For another centerpiece, Mrs. MacLaren painted a small branch with white enamel placed it oil a cloud of spun glass and attached a dozen angel figures in filmy jowns and gilded wings, each playing a violin. A music box at the back plays "Silent Night." One more feature at the Mac- MILK St. Olaf Guild Circles Laren home, this one especially for the children, is a gingerbread house which Mr. Mac Laren makes every year. It has a frosted roof and candy sidewalk. Out in Norman Park, Mrs. Bryan Elmer and Mrs. Raymond Aspjtor, gave the Christmas message Circles of St. Olaf Lutheran Missionary Guild held sessions Thursday.
