I got poinsettias for $0.98 a piece at Lowe's on Black Friday weekend, but I think they only cost around $2.00 there now. I took off the "fancy", shiny, gold paper around the pot and covered them with material I had on hand, burlap. Also, tied red ribbon around them I also had, and changed the look of them pretty drastically.
Then, with the help of my much-more artistic husband, he drew some gift tags for me in the shape of watering cans.
I cut wooden skewers in half and then simply taped the tag to the stick.
Then I wrote:
THANKS FOR HELPING ME TO GROW THIS YEAR;ESPECIALLY IN THE LORD!
Stuck the gift tag in the pot and voila!
