For your favorite horticulturist, choose a sturdy basket that can have a long life of service in the garden. We decorated ours using a palette of yellows and oranges, inspired by the early-blooming daffodils.
Beautiful and durable, crepe paper lends itself to countless applications. Glue bands of it to a bunch of eggs, affix tiny crepe blooms, and pile them in a bowl for a simple, elegant display. You also can use the paper to create lifelike flowers with egg centers. Or add crepe ears to an egg and watch it turn into a bunny.
This Valentine's Day, encourage kids to show sweet sentiments with tokens of affection that go beyond the store-bought card. Most of the projects require only a bit of cutting and a little gluing; all can be decorated to their heart's desire.
