Felt Poinsettia Wreath Craft

Poinsettias are really popular flowers during the holidays. The colors of red and green just seem to say Christmas all over. For this craft, thick stiff felt was used to create these flowers and that way they hold their shape without becoming flimsy. A total of 7 flowers were made to cover the wreath shape. This wreath can either be used as a centerpiece for a table or as a wreath for a door (indoors only). In the images below, there are more examples how you can make or use the wreath.



Felt Poinsettia Wreath Craft

For this project the following supplies were used:

- 20 cm styrofoam wreath shape (with a flat underside)
- thick and soft green yarn (This ball happened to be left over from a knitting project ... you can use whatever you like. You will
  not be seeing much of the yarn once the wreath is finished.)
- tacky glue
- a sheet each of thick red and green felt
- 42 x 4mm wooden yellow beads for the poinsettia centers
- hot glue gun
- a small hurricane glass that will fit in the center of the wreath
- a candle
- decorative small red rocks to place the candle on

Poinsettia Leaf Template
Poinsettia and leaf template - print out so that the length of the leaf measures approximately 6.5 centimeters. This is the size used for the 20 cm wreath in this project.

3. Then tightly wrap the yarn around the shape. Because the outer side of the wreath is wider than the inner side, you will occasionally need to wrap the yarn again over the previous wrapped yarn at the inner wreath center. This means it will be doubled at the center of the wreath and single layer at the outer wreath. If you don’t do this, the inner side of the wreath will be finished long before the outer edge is finished.

4. Now the wreath is finished. Cut the end off on the backside and glue it in place..

5. Now it is time to prepare the flowers. There are 7 flowers and for each one you need 5 red petals and at least 1 green petal, but feel free to make more. So you need to cut 35 red petals and at least 7 green petals. (Below in the larger images, there is an example of a wreath that only has 3 flowers. You may also like that look instead of filling it completely with all 7 flowers.)

6. Once all of the petals are cut, pinch one end and hot glue it together. You may need to use clothes pins to hold the pinched end in place until the glue hardens.

7. Then glue 5 red petals together. You may need to snip off the long end of the pinched area if necessary so that the petals will fit in place. The petals do not need to be perfectly side-by-side, but can overlap a little. Then hot glue one green leaf on the backside between any 2 red petals. Then hot glue the 7 yellow beads to the center of the flower.

8. When finished, a flower then looks similar to this one.

9. Then arrange all 7 flowers around the wreath. If you would like to hang the wreath, wrap a piece of the yarn around the wreath and create a loop for hanging. Now glue the flowers in place.

If the wreath is finished and looks like it has a space here or there that needs filling, you can cut more green leaves if you like to fill the spaces.
