BARNYARD CANDLEHOLDERSTo show these plastic animals the light,
we applied a technique featured on
thesweetestoccasion.com. Secure the cup
using a no. 5 screw (its head will rest just a
top the cup's hole). Repeat to make multiple holders.
TREE BRANCH COASTERSTo make these rustic drink perches,
you'll need a tree limb that's roughly
three inches in diameter. Saw the branch
into slices about3/4-inch thick—or have a hardware
store do it for you—and lightly sand each wood disk.
CROCHETED TEA TOWELSReady-made edgings and borders, available
by the yard at fabric stores or adapted from
flea-market finds, make it easy to transform even the
simplest home textiles into vintage-style home accessories.
PAPER VASESNear a favorite reading chair,
present a page-turning vignette.
Paint a silhouette on a backdrop of
book pages. Then cut vase shapes
to give text three dimensions.

into an expanding file for letters,
receipts, and other important documents.
