Simply Christmas–easy felt Poinsettias

I was looking for a little something different to adorn some holiday gift boxes. . .

It needed to fit with my vintage paper theme. .  .

So I made some super easy white Poinsettias.

They took no time at all to make and so the collection grew. . . and grew. . .

And I started adding them to other decor like candles and gift cards,

Gift boxes and white vignettes.

Easy Felt Poinsettias

Supplies:

off-white wool felt, scissors, All Purpose Glue or a hot glue gun, pegs and buttons for the flower centres.

Instructions:

1. Enlarge the template to the size you require.

2. Cut 1 x large flower and 5 x petals from wool felt.

3. Apply a small dot of glue to the base of each petal and fold the petal end over and hold together with a peg.

4. When all 5 petals are dry, apply a large dot of glue to the centre of the flower cut-out and position all 5 petals in place (as shown in photo below).

Glue or sew a button to the centre of the flower, where the petals meet.

For a fancy flower I used rhinestone and pearl buttons. . .

And cream buttons for a less formal look.

For a project that takes just a few minutes to make, I think these felt Poinsettias  add a lot of pizazz to a gift box or your Christmas decorating.

I’m sharing this easy Christmas project with these friends this week:
