  1. Creepy Candles

    Hide

    Cast a sinister glow over any setting with a cluster of white tapers dripping with "blood" (actually red candle wax). Fill a cup or a small pail with sand, and plant white candles inside so they stand upright. Light a red candle and tip it over the white candles so the wax drips down the tops and sides, being careful not to burn yourself. Let wax cool completely before removing candles from sand.

  2. Sea-Glass Bracelet

    Hide

    Glass and ceramic are used to make this ocean-blue-green bracelet. You'll need sea glass pieces of the same size and color for this project.

    Bracelet How-To
    1. Apply a dot of cement glue to each disk on a disk-and-loop bracelet form (available at jewelry-supply stores). 

    2. Adhere glass to disks, and let dry overnight.

  3. 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.

  4. Hostess Gift: Personalized Photo CD

    Hide

    Staying with friends this summer? Show your gratitude by sending them a photo CD of your trip. Save digital images to a disc, and then personalize it further by adhering a print to the top. It's easy with specialized CD/DVD labels (officedepot.com).

  5. Glove Grips

    Hide

    Woolen gloves keep hands toasty, but they can make for some slippery situations. To get a better handle on things, try this: Download our template, print, and cut out. (You may have to reduce or enlarge the image, depending on your glove size.) Trace template onto Ultrasuede fabric; cut out. Turn template over, and repeat. Sew onto gloves by whipstitching around edges of fabric using matching thread.
