Money is really tight this year, so I had to do some improvising for my gifts for my female friends and relatives.  These were made with $1.00 from a garage sale electric candles, and $0.25 from a garage sale glasses that I frosted.  A little hot glue, some evergreen garland, some red beaded christmas balls, and fake flowers from the hobby store.  This is the order I made them in.

Number one:  My first attempt.  Not great, but I was happy with it.  (Number 2 I don't have a picture of because I have already given it away.)

Number three:  I really liked this one.  (I had better, it's for my mother-in-law.)

Number four:  Moving on to the glasses, and had to buy new flowers.

Number five:  More of the same by this point.

Number six:  Last one.  I was kind of sad to be done, I really had a lot of fun doing these.

These took about an hour and a half each.  If you want step by step directions, I'll be happy to give them to you.  Super easy.  I'm also interested in feedback.  If you were given something like this, would you like it?

They look more expensive than what you paid to make them. I would use one if it were given to me. I really like the frosted glass ones.
