  1. 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.

  2. Colorful Egg Tree

    Hide

    With bright marbleized eggs suspended on yellow ribbons and a ring of golden pot marigolds around the base, it sets the stage for a lively egg hunt or leisurely spring brunch.

  3. Can-Do Cans

    Hide

    Use our red, white, and blue designs to cover empty tin cans, then fill them with flowers (we chose sweet pea and veronica), utensils, breadsticks, and more.

  4. Outdoor Fall Arrangement

    Hide

    Plants that are past their prime can be stunning. Their imperfections -- the dramatic shapes, colors, and textures not found in just-bloomed plants -- are part of the appeal. 

    To create this arrangement, we tapped our gardens for rose hips and seed heads from coneflowers and asters. See what catches your eye in your yard.

  5. 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.
