  1. How-To

    Bat Headband

    Hide

    Stack and fold two sheets of black paper in half. Enlarge template. Position template on fold, trace, and cut out, making two bats. With black craft wire, poke a hole in the center of one bat; hold the end of the wire. Glue second bat on top, sandwiching wire in between. Wrap opposite end of the wire around a thin headband (ours was 1/4-inch wide) to secure. Repeat, adding more bats.

  3. Hanging Halloween Decorations

    Hide

    For many, the best part about Halloween is decorating! But using nails or pieces of tape to hang decorations can cause damage to your walls. To avoid this, "The Martha Stewart Show" art director, Anduin Havens, has been using 3M Command strips and hooks to decorate our set for years. While they stick on strong, when the holiday season is over, they will come right off without leaving a mark.

  4. Outdoor Fall Arrangement

    Hide

    Plants that are past their prime can be stunning. Their imperfections -- the dramatic shapes, colors, and textures not found in just-bloomed plants -- are part of the appeal. 

    To create this arrangement, we tapped our gardens for rose hips and seed heads from coneflowers and asters. See what catches your eye in your yard.

  5. Artistry and Old Lace

    Hide

    This Easter, take hard-boiled eggs to new heights by embellishing them with lacy patterns. All you need to make them is standard egg dye, rubber bands, and inexpensive lace trimmings from a fabric store. (You can also use scraps cut from a worn tablecloth or curtains.) Once the eggs are dyed and dry, pile them in a large bowl and use them as a centerpiece.
