DIY Poinsettia Wreath Tutorial
Die-cut a 20cm diameter circle out of a cardboard box and out of red felt. Attach the felt circle to the cardboard using a glue gun.
Trim lengths of green felt appropriately 1.5cm wide then wrap around a 25cm polystyrene wreath, fixing in place with a glue gun.
Attach the wreath on top of the red felt circle.
Print out and draw around the template provided, then cut out the main body of a poinsettia flower and five petals in red felt.
Add a little glue to the end of each petal then pinch together to form a 3d petal.
Glue the petals in place around the main body of the poinsettia. Die-cut a 2cm circle in red felt, glue in the centre then add an adhesive pearl and silver gems.
Using the template provided, draw around then cut out three leaves in green felt.
Glue and pinch one end of each leaf then attach to the back of the flower.
Make five more poinsettia flowers in the same way, two in red felt and three in white felt.
Place the hurricane jar inside the polystyrene wreath then attach the flowers evenly around it using a glue gun. Place the church candle inside the hurricane jar.
When your project is complete, get set to enjoy a cozy candlelit night in… time for a hot chocolate and a festive film, perhaps?
