What is a nice Christmas decoration for a gravesite?

Special poinsettias for home/gravesite

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.
