Beaded Initial: You will need 1 yard of 24-gauge beading wire, 1 package (3 oz) rochaille beads and wired cording. Crimp one end of wire with needle-nose pliers. Thread beads onto wire until filled. Crimp opposite end of wire to secure beads. Shape beaded wire into desired initial. Wrap wired cording around package; add initial and twist to secure.
Tinsel Star Topper: You will need 2 gold or silver tinsel stems (from a package of 12 stems). Tinsel stems will be stocked with the chenille stems (pipe cleaners.) Bend one stem into 11 equal parts; shape into star. Using 11th bend, twist to secure and create loop. Wrap second tinsel stem around package; twist, leaving two short ends. Insert short ends through loop on star. Spread apart ends to secure tinsel star topper.
Flower Bud: Glue artificial flower bud to top of wrapped package, using hot-glue gun with glue sticks.
