POINSETTIA WREATH TUTORIAL

Christmas craft project - make a red poinsttia wreath or table decoration as a gift or fundraising project

For this wreath we have used a 10" padded wreath ring. You can build up a base using a wire wreath frame and straw but a padded wreath base saves a lot of time and effort and let you get down to the creative bit of wreath making straight away.

The flowers chosen for this wreath are red 'silk' poinsettia (actually a polyester cloth) picks.

Making a poinsettia Christmas wreath - push the flowers into the wreath base

Gently push the wire stem of the poinsettia pick through the wreath base until the plastic neck of the flower just touches the wreath base.

Take care to push the pick rather than pull on the wire or it will separate from the flower head. For this wreath we used 24 poinsettias but it is a bit too dense so you could easily manage with just 20 flowers or less if you added in foliage or holly.

Cut off the wire stems from the poisettia picks

Turn over the wreath and cut off the wire stems leaving 1.5" / 4cm of wire protruding (the wire cutters shown in the picture were just £3 from Aldi)

Poinsettia wreath - fixing the flower stems

Bend the wire stem over at 90 degrees (snipe nosed pliers can help) and then fold the remaining wire back into the wreath base much like a staple.

Using one of the cut off wire stems form a loop at one end then pust through the base to make an eye from which the wreath can be hung on the wall or a ribbon attached.
