Review:

Open this idea-packed volume completely at random and you'll come up with a great project every time. Besides great holiday-related crafts--lots of marvelous Christmas decorations, some fun Halloween items, lovely Valentine's Day keepsakes, Easter goodies--there are loads of wonderful objects for year-round use (frames, vases, lampshades, napkin rings, candleholders, table settings, and so much more). Everything is very easy to make, from simple step-by-step projects that require a modicum of time and materials to quickly made pieces that need only a very few supplies and even less time, to instant crafts that you can throw together out of almost nothing in almost no time. (Try this glittering centerpiece, for instance: fill lots of mismatched glasses and goblets with water, add sprinkles of confetti, and float a candle in each.) Even if you've never crafted before, you can handle nearly any project in the book, but each one is so appealing that experienced crafters with fairly sophisticated tastes will also find much to enjoy here. --Amy Handy

From Booklist:

The Better Homes and Gardens folks have perfected the art of making something from nothing--or at least from the materials at hand around the house. Here, creativity blooms 365 days a year in easy craft projects to accessorize the home or present as a gift to a loved one. Divided into seasons (somewhat arbitrarily, except for holiday-geared items), each section features different levels of crafts, from the make-it-in-minutes kind to more involved projects. Heavy on photographs and light on words, some of the more memorable items include shades-of-the-1950s beaded fruit, decorator-style copper and brass napkin rings, and the simple addition of dollar bills to the front of otherwise empty picture frames. Although few skills are required, the rewards are great. Barbara Jacobs
