You don't need a visit from Jack Frost to re-create the appearance of ice-glazed glass. You can "frost" inexpensive cylindrical glass vases with glass-frosting spray to make these candleholders. Use a snowflake craft punch to cut shapes from a self-adhesive laminating sheet. Affix snowflakes to outside of each vase. Apply glass-frosting spray (available at home-supply stores) in an even layer all over outside of vase; let dry. Using tip of a craft knife, carefully peel off stickers.

Warm someone up by adding a handwritten note to a tea bag. Cut two hearts out of red construction paper using a heart-shaped crafter's hole punch (available at crafts stores). Use a metallic pen to write a short message on one of the hearts. Next, remove a tea-bag tag and, at the end of the string, affix two hearts, back-to-back, using double-sided tape or a stapler. Package bags to give as a present, or steep one in hot water and serve.

From the Sunflower State of Kansas, here's a way to welcome guests to the table with a great big hello. Trim sunflower stems short, so they fit into juice glasses. Cut paper into petal shapes and write guests' names on them. Then add the extra petal to the flowers with dots of tacky white glue.
