Even if you tend to be scared of your own shadow, you'll still smile at your reflection, thanks to this friendly spirit on your mirror. The cutout is made of frosted-glass window film, which adheres easily and (like ghosts everywhere) disappears without a trace. Download the template, trace onto the film, cut out with a pair of scissors, and apply.

This unusual pairing features two items with similar budlike shapes: creamy-white roses and emerald-green ornamental kale.
If your basket has gaps in its sides, weave a ribbon through the rungs. Next, tuck a plastic liner inside, and then trim a block of floral foam to fit. Soak the foam in water and set it in the liner. Push the kale and rose stems into it. Do the same with sprigs of pine around the edges. Finish by wrapping branches of pine around the handle, securing them with floral wire. The display will stay fresh for several days.

There's a simple way to replace the standard wrapping from a florist with something prettier and more personal -- always a nice touch when giving someone flowers. Cut a length of white parchment paper so it's large enough to wrap around the arrangement. Using scallop scissors, trim along all sides. Lay flowers on a diagonal at one corner of the parchment. Wrap the paper around the blooms. Cut a length of ribbon, and tie it around the bundle to secure.
