    Lace Taper Candle How-To
    1. Trim a strip of rub-on transfer to the length of a taper candle. Hold strip in place on candle with low-tack tape. 

    2. Working from bottom to top, burnish transfer onto candle with a craft stick or bone folder. 

    3. Remove tape and transfer backing.

  2. Magician Cape

    Hide

    All we did to transform a mere 7-year-old boy to a mighty magician was use a fabric marker to draw a tie and collar onto a white T-shirt, affix a fake carnation to his lapel, and tie a black-and-red satin cape around his neck. And lo and behold: a levitating maestro ready to make piles of candy disappear.

    Cape How-To
    This unadorned cape falls just above the knee. You will need black satin and red satin fabric and two 14-inch pieces of red satin ribbon for ties. Make the cape following the basic directions. Stitch the ribbons securely to either side of the neck.

    Stylish and functional, these storage boxes are treasured by Living's decorating editorial director, Kevin Sharkey: "It's a practical way to bring color into your home or your office." 

    Covered in embossed matelasse paper with contrasting trim, the exquisite handmade containers come in a range of hues, shapes, and sizes, all the better to hold papers, shoes, and other objects. We've personalized ours with labels.

  4. Spirited Service

    Hide

    Ever the loyal servant, the butler ladles out punch for guests. (He passed away some time ago but never really retired.) We photographed the room and the butler separately, then digitally pasted him in midair, with his legs fading away. Black turnips and mini-pumpkin cups help set a ghoulish party scene.
