  1. Gift-Topper Berries

    Hide

    Decorate holiday packages with these red-and-green berry clusters, left. Attach them with waxed twine, and then tie gift tags to the stems.

    1. To make leaves and berries, follow the instructions for our Fall Berry Wreath, but use light-green and dark-green felt for the leaves' top and bottom layers, respectively, and dark-red felt for the berries. 

    2. Cluster leaf and berry stems; bind with green floral tape.

  3. Magazine Holders with Handles

    Hide

    Magazine holders are good for keeping old issues in order, but their handleless backs make it difficult to access them when you need to. For a permanent fix, position a sash lift on the back of a holder, and mark screw holes with a pen. With a hand drill, make two holes in holder to accommodate small bolts. Secure the lift to the holder with bolts and matching nuts.

  4. Good Thing

    Fall Garland

    Hide

    Create a seasonal garland to drape around the doorway using multicolored decorative dried corn. 

    Space cobs 6 to 8 inches apart on a length of raffia (available at crafts stores), tying it around each piece where the husk meets the kernels. 

    The cobs will hang vertically; if you'd like them to be horizontal (as shown in the center of garland), tie the tip of each cob to the husk of the next using floral wire.
