Terra-cotta Flower Pots
Paint terra-cotta pots white on the outside and silver or gold on the inside. Get creative with polka dots and stripes in silver or gold on the outside of the pot. Once the pot is dry, lay it atop a piece of waxed paper and fill it with your delicious cookies. Then, tie the waxed paper with a silver piece of tinsel or gold ribbon.
