Martha Stewart Living, Volume 145 December 2005

Tools and Materials
Plastic liner from crafts or floral-supply stores
Pot of forced paperwhites

Basket How-To
Purchase a pot of paperwhites that fits inside a round basket. Trim plastic liner (available at crafts store) to fit basket, place it inside, and add the pot. With sheet moss, fill in gaps between pot and basket, and cover top of soil. Tuck sprigs of princess pine around base of basket to create a decorative ring. Blooms will thrive in a cool room with indirect light.

    You can use any evergreen you've got in your yard for the base. I have juniper, and it looks just as good. Why not tuck in a little birdie or butterfly in your tableau? One last idea... give on of these to your favorite diabetic in lieu of a birthday cake, and put long taper candles in it so they can make their wish. Look ma, no sugar!
