  1. Hanging Halloween Decorations

    Hide

    For many, the best part about Halloween is decorating! But using nails or pieces of tape to hang decorations can cause damage to your walls. To avoid this, "The Martha Stewart Show" art director, Anduin Havens, has been using 3M Command strips and hooks to decorate our set for years. While they stick on strong, when the holiday season is over, they will come right off without leaving a mark.

  2. New Year's Champagne with Grapes

    Hide

    In Spain, revelers mark the new year by quickly eating a dozen grapes at midnight. The fruit is said to be a predictor of the year ahead: Each sweet grape represents a good month, each sour grape a less-than-lucky one. 

    Adopt the tradition by threading grapes onto skewers, and serve each in a glass of Champagne just before the countdown.

  3. Heart-Covered Waxed Paper How-To

    Hide

    Fold a piece of tissue paper in half three times, forming eight layers. Using a heart-shaped craft punch, cut out hearts. Cover the surface of an ironing board with paper towels; place a sheet of waxed paper on top. Arrange hearts on waxed paper, and cover with another sheet of waxed paper. Cover with more paper towels. Run an iron, set to medium heat, lightly over the layers to set.

  4. April Fools' Trick: Shrunken Breakfast

    Hide

    Serve a meal in miniature: a sunny-side-up quail egg atop a piece of cocktail bread. 

    (Quail eggs are available at specialty-food stores, including some Whole Foods markets, and through LocalHarvest.)
