  1. Valentine's Day "Candy" Hearts Arrangement

    Hide

    This arrangement speaks for itself. To create it, cut out paper conversation hearts and, using string, attach them to an 11-inch piece of wire bent into a curve. Tuck into a bouquet (we used parrot tulips and nerine lilies).

  2. Lacy Egg How-To

    Hide

    Cut lace into strips long enough to wrap around eggs and still have extra to form a sash for holding. Wrap eggs, securing lace with rubber bands. Dye eggs according to dye package instructions. Lift out, cut off rubber bands, and unwrap lace. Let dry on foam board fitted with flathead pins.

    How to Secure a Hanging Christmas Ornament

    Hide

    Anyone with a Christmas tree should have this trick up her sleeve. Instead of hanging a fragile or antique ornament from a hook (far too easy for curious children or pets to knock loose), secure it with a length of 28-gauge wire. 

    Thread wire through hanging loop, wrap around a branch, and twist ends. Your ornament won't go anywhere. The best part is you can hang each decoration at exactly the height you desire.

  4. Ring of Rolls Christmas Centerpiece

    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.
