  1. Heart-Shaped Tea Bags

    Hide

    Warm someone up by adding a handwritten note to a tea bag. Cut two hearts out of red construction paper using a heart-shaped crafter's hole punch (available at crafts stores). Use a metallic pen to write a short message on one of the hearts. Next, remove a tea-bag tag and, at the end of the string, affix two hearts, back-to-back, using double-sided tape or a stapler. Package bags to give as a present, or steep one in hot water and serve.

  2. Smashing Pumpkin Halloween Invitation

    Hide

    Send Halloween party invitations adorned with a familiar grin. 

    Print the pumpkin template and cut out. Trace template onto orange card stock; cut out. Form eyes, nose, and mouth from rickrack, and affix with craft glue. Glue a length of green rickrack to the back for the stem. Then glue pumpkin to the front of a plain card, and inscribe a spooky -- or sweet -- message for your guests.

  3. Good Thing

    Fall Garland

    Hide

    Create a seasonal garland to drape around the doorway using multicolored decorative dried corn. 

    Space cobs 6 to 8 inches apart on a length of raffia (available at crafts stores), tying it around each piece where the husk meets the kernels. 

    The cobs will hang vertically; if you'd like them to be horizontal (as shown in the center of garland), tie the tip of each cob to the husk of the next using floral wire.
