  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).

  3. Gift Monogram

    Hide

    Recycle holiday cards as labels for presents.

    With a pencil, kids can draw (or stencil) the recipient's initial onto a card, and cut it out. Punch a hole in the letter, and tie to gift with yarn or ribbon.

  4. Mini Chocolate Gingerbread Village

    Hide

    What could be sweeter than a village of bite-size houses built from bricks of chocolate-gingerbread cake? To make these party favors, cut a sheet cake into 75 one-inch squares. Cut 25 of the squares in half diagonally, creating 50 triangles. Place a triangle, cut side down, on top of each remaining square, using a dab of frosting to adhere. Tuck in small pieces of red licorice for chimneys, and dust with confectioners' sugar before arranging on place cards.
