Hard-cooked eggs were dyed the day before the party for no-mess decorating with stickers, markers, and colorful clip-art paper bands.

No need to go to excess this holiday season. Small glints and gleams make the greatest impression. Use the most precious metal, real and faux, to highlight and amplify natural beauty and your celebrations are sure to be filled with golden moments.

Stack and fold two sheets of black paper in half. Enlarge template. Position template on fold, trace, and cut out, making two bats. With black craft wire, poke a hole in the center of one bat; hold the end of the wire. Glue second bat on top, sandwiching wire in between. Wrap opposite end of the wire around a thin headband (ours was 1/4-inch wide) to secure. Repeat, adding more bats.
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.

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.

If you're looking for a last-minute Valentine's Day present, you can't go wrong with candy.
For an easy-to-make gift, simply fill a cello bag three-quarters full with layers of jelly beans and hard candy. Top it off with a heart-shaped lollipop, stuck directly into the mixture, and tie the whole package together with a beautiful ribbon.
