  1. Easter Basket Tags

    Hide

    Inexpensive baskets are adorned with clip art tags for kids to write their names on, so there are no mix-ups at your Easter-egg hunt party.

    Print onto card stock, and cut out. Punch a hole at the top, and thread with string or ribbon. Use open space to write a name on each.

  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.

  3. Leaf-Embellished Chandelier

    Hide

    Just a few leaves -- some evergreen, some glimmering silver as if dusted with snow -- add subtle wintry beauty to a candlelit chandelier.

    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.

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

  6. Self-Serve Halloween Treats

    Hide

    What You'll Need
    Mini white flat paper bags
    Rubber stamps and black or orange ink pads
    Pumpkin
    Pushpins

    Self-Serve Halloween Treat How-To
    Decorate paper bags with rubber-stamped designs; fill with treats, then attach to a pumpkin with pushpins (be sure they are pushed in firmly so they don't come out when little hands tug down on the bags). Leave a note inviting kids to take one; ours is a tiny chalkboard hung with a ribbon.
