  1. Pinecone Lamp Finial

    Hide

    Bring a bit of the forest indoors by decorating a lamp finial with a pinecone, plain or spray-painted silver. If your lamp doesn't already have a basic finial -- the small piece that screws onto the top of a lamp's harp -- you can buy one at the hardware store. 

    Lamp Finial How-To
    1. Sand the bottom of the pinecone to create a smooth surface. 

    2. Dab a bit of hot glue onto the flattened area, and press the pinecone onto the top of the finial.

  3. Frosty Finish

    Hide

    You don't need a visit from Jack Frost to re-create the appearance of ice-glazed glass. You can "frost" inexpensive cylindrical glass vases with glass-frosting spray to make these candleholders. Use a snowflake craft punch to cut shapes from a self-adhesive laminating sheet. Affix snowflakes to outside of each vase. Apply glass-frosting spray (available at home-supply stores) in an even layer all over outside of vase; let dry. Using tip of a craft knife, carefully peel off stickers.

  4. Homespun Pumpkin Decorations

    Hide

    Assembled from yarn, rope, and foam balls, these homespun pumpkin decorations are simple to make. For each, gently press top and bottom of a Styrofoam ball against a work surface to flatten ends (so ball doesn't roll). Wrap orange roving around ball. Insert a T pin into top. Tie cream or orange mohair yarn to pin and cover ball. Cut a length of rope; place over pin, and attach with a hot-glue gun, pressing to secure.
