Get baby ready to fight the winter chill: a festive pilot's cap embellished with felt hearts helps keep tiny ears toasty. Cut two large hearts from felt. Then use a needle and thread to stitch them to the cap at three points. If you want the decoration to be permanent, affix hearts with fabric glue before sewing.

Ever the loyal servant, the butler ladles out punch for guests. (He passed away some time ago but never really retired.)

It's hard to keep track of small hardware such as washers, grommets, and nuts. Here's a handy way to organize them by size and type: String them on shower curtain rings. Hang the metal rings on a board above your workbench so the loose hardware will be even easier to spot.

Celebrate the new season with place cards that resemble tufts of grass. Cut a 3-by-4-inch rectangle from green card stock. On 1 short side, fold under 1 inch to create a base. Stamp or write a name on the place card. Using scissors, cut a series of grass blades, as shown, stopping about 1 inch from the bottom. To finish, make angled cuts along the top.
