Nice topic, Julie! My mom was a big crafter. And the magazine you have looks familiar to me. Sometime in the early 1960's my mom changed out the Christmas decorations from the 50's--- tree with big colored bulbs, pinecone people ornaments, tinsel and a train underneath, to another kind of tree with white lights and sequined ornaments she made by hand one year---I think it took all year to make enough to cover the tree. She used styrofoam, straight pins and tiny little sequins. She also made an absolutley huge pinecone wreath out of a hula hoop covered with chicken wire as a base, then she sprayed pinecones gold and hand- wired them to the chicken wire. It must have been pretty splashy! I remember it was featured in our town's newspaper that year, along with a big gold pinecone topiary tree she fashioned to put on the front door. A gold wreath made from computer punch cards---makes me want to say the apples don't fall far from the tree! I bet it was adorable!
