For designer holiday flair, substitute easy-to-make topiary centerpieces for traditional poinsettias or evergreens.
1. In a well-ventilated work area, attach small sections of peat moss to a plastic-foam ball with spray adhesive. Let dry.
2. Using a crafts knife, cut a hole in the center of the peat moss, large enough to insert a candle.
3. Set the topiary in a terra-cotta pot. Place the candle in the opening. Tie a ribbon bow and glue it to the rim of the terra-cotta pot.
Note: Never leave a burning candle unattended.
