Christmas is in the air! I mean, it’s in the air before Halloween even happens right?! I am all about enjoying each holiday as they come but I can’t help but get excited for Christmas every year! It’s my favorite holiday. The food, the lights, the music, the “magic” you get to experience as children and then as parents watching your children. This felt poinsettia is the perfect Christmas craft. You can place a small ribbon on the back of it for ornaments or attach it to a christmas gift as a special “gift tag”. You could glue them on a piece of elastic and use it as your napkin ring. The possibilities are endless with these little guys. They are one of my favorite christmas crafts and has been one of my most popular posts since I created it a few years ago! I decided to give it a little update with some more detailed pictures and even a little video 🙂
SUPPLIES FOR FELT POINSETTIA:
- Red or White Felt
- Ribbon, if making them as ornaments
- Mini Pearl Beads or Pearl Stickers ( my local Dollar General had 3D bead stickers)
- Hot glue gun
First you will want to cut out 10 petals from your red felt. I do not have a template. I just freehand cut them out. You can make them as big or as large as you want depending on what you want the finished size of your felt poinsettia to me. You will want to hot glue 5 pieces in a similar design as you see above.
Take your next 5 petals and carefully place a small amount of hot glue in the petal and press until dry. You want it to fold a bit. Then place your petal down in between the petals that are already down. You may want to trim the tip of your petals to be more straight before glueing them down.
Trim any petals that seem too long and then add your pearl beads or stickers with the hot glue.
You can choose to add greenery at this step if you want. I just cut out larger petals and hot glued them to the back of the felt poinsettia.
