December 5, 2008, Newsletter Issue #270: Special poinsettias for home/gravesite

Tip of the Week

This is a special ´touch´ for poinsettias that I place at my husband´s gravesite and in vases around the house. Purchase at craft store one (or more) large, silk poinsettia ´bouquet(s)´, bottle each of glitter-gold and glitter-green Tulip fabric paint. Paint the ´veins´ and edges of poinsettia bracts (the red leaf), and the ´inside´ (the actual flower) with gold, and half of the other leaves with green. Let dry at least 24 hours. A really beautiful effect.
