Make a simple centerpiece
Greet your holiday hostess with a homemade gift that is strikingly simple. With a quick trip to a crafts supply store, you can make a centerpiece that shows off a miniature poinsettia (often available by special order from your local florist or online). Paint a peat pot and let it dry. Create a gift-box design on a piece of scrapbook paper and glue it to the front of the peat pot. Remove excess soil from the poinsettia, put the plant into a plastic sandwich bag and place it in the peat pot. Cover the top of the exposed soil with shaved soap or purchased coconut for a fresh-snowfall effect. Place the pot under a large, bell-shape jar decked with ribbon.
