Affordable Hostess Gift Anyone Can Make | All You Need is a Poinsettia Plant, Wrapping Paper, and Ribbon | creativecaincabin.comI picked up paper that looks like burlap with a snowflake pattern on it, and purchased ribbon in the fabric department rather than the Christmas department. 

Affordable Hostess Gift Anyone Can Make | All You Need is a Poinsettia Plant, Wrapping Paper, and Ribbon | creativecaincabin.comI’ve never liked the look of foil wrap around potted plants anyway, and they seldom come in the colors I like. So I decided to grab a roll of heavy weight gift wrap and cover the ugly pots. Make sure and leave the foil on just cut it down so it doesn’t overlap the top of the pot, you need it to prevent water from seeping through the bottom. I cut a 18X18″ square and gave the pots a new look.

It’s a very affordable way to give something small to that unexpected guest, your mailman, stylist or anyone else who pops into your place at Christmas time.

    Dawn, I think poinsettias are welcomed by anyone at this time of year, especially ones wrapped as pretty as yours! You’re so smart to be prepared for unexpected guests. Right now I’m not so I need to get on the ball!

      Jane, they are such an easy thing to have around for that unexpected drop in guest. I hope I have enough this year.

      Nancy, well all my guests will be going home with one. I’m not good with indoor plants so they need to go before I kill them all.
