  1. 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.

  2. Colorful Egg Tree

    Hide

    With bright marbleized eggs suspended on yellow ribbons and a ring of golden pot marigolds around the base, it sets the stage for a lively egg hunt or leisurely spring brunch.

  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.

    How to Secure a Hanging Christmas Ornament

    Hide

    Anyone with a Christmas tree should have this trick up her sleeve. Instead of hanging a fragile or antique ornament from a hook (far too easy for curious children or pets to knock loose), secure it with a length of 28-gauge wire. 

    Thread wire through hanging loop, wrap around a branch, and twist ends. Your ornament won't go anywhere. The best part is you can hang each decoration at exactly the height you desire.
