  1. Hang a Wreath Without Making Holes in the Door

    Hide

    Sometimes it's what you don't see that really counts. Suspend your holiday wreath from the top of the door frame and avoid making unsightly holes. Cut a 3-inch-wide satin or grosgrain ribbon long enough, when doubled, to hang wreath at the desired height. Loop ribbon around back of wreath form. Join ends, and fold them over 1/2 inch. Secure to top of door with thumbtacks. 

    This technique is great for mirrors, too: Hang a wreath in front of the glass, and tack the hanger behind the frame.

  2. Simple Easter Display

    Hide

    To create a great Easter display without a great deal of effort, limit your palette to one spring-inspired color, such as yellow. 

    Dye eggs, and group them in compotes on beds of raffia. Stand flowers in a matching hue nearby (daffodils are shown here). As a final touch, dye bits of raffia and use them to tie the flower stems.

    Hide

    This centerpiece of pull-apart rolls rises to the occasion. 

    Use your favorite recipe (or try the Parker House Rolls). Roll dough into sixteen 1 1/2-inch balls. Arrange in a ring on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with butter, sprinkle on parsley, rosemary, or thyme; bake as directed. Serve on a cake stand atop a bed of whole herbs.
