Several years ago, a friend with a new job in management was wondering what to give his female employees as a gift. Because he had just started the job and didn't know them well enough, I suggested something simple that might have widespread interest.
I ended up making the gifts. As I thought about how this week many of you may be faced with unexpected guests during the holidays, I thought it would be nice to put up a simple project that you could make and have on-hand should you find yourselves in need of an extra gift.
What you'll need:
- Mason jar
- Votive candle holder that fits in neck of jar
- Votive candle
Fill jar with potpourri. Glue ribbon around neck of jar and add any embellishments you wish. Place candle holder in jar and add candle. Wrap up in paper different than your family and friend gifts so you recognize these as the extras you are keeping around for unexpected guests.
