Poinsettia Wreath

Make your own realistic poinsettia-style flowers to add onto wreaths and other festive decorations.

Skill Level

Beginner

Time to Make

45 minutes + drying time for glue

How to Make

  1. Paste 10 pink or purple skeleton leaves onto red paper. Paste 6 dark green leaves onto light green paper. Leave to dry.
  2. Cut out the leaves so they are 5-6cm in length, a bit smaller than the whole skeleton leaf.
  3. Glue 5 red leaves onto a 3cm card circle in a flower shape. Glue 5 more leaves over the top to add a second layer.
  4. Glue the green leaves underneath the flower, so they are visible between the red flower petals. Stick sparkly gems in the middle.
  5. Fix the flowers onto a rattan wreath using strong glue or sticky foam pads.
  6. Push pine branches and red berries into the wreath.
  7. Lightly brush the wreath, branches and berried with white or silver paint for a frosty effect. Use a big brush to do this and keep the paint fairly dry.
  8. Tie a ribbon around the wreath to hang it up.

Top Tip

Carefully use a brush to cover the ends of the pine branches with black paint so the wire isn’t visible.
