Christmas Wreathe {Poinsettia} Tutorial

Easy Christmas wreathe of felt and yarn.
And lots of hot glue with the option to sew instead!

This wreathe was fun and easy to make.
Each flower was made in a different way.
The two large flowers were created with hot glue and the smaller was sewn together.
Have fun with this project and see which way is best for you!

It was hard to stop and take pictures while making this Christmas Poinsettia Wreathe, so I collaged together what pictures I managed to take.

Basically, my oldest son and I free-handed the petal shapes.
Our largest petals are ~4 inches long, the medium ~3 inches long, and the small ~2 inches.
I've seen some tutorials that suggest cutting rectangles at these lengths then rounding edges to petal shapes.
We just winged it! These kind of projects are sometimes more fun this way. Other times, not so much.
We lucked out. My son and I finished this in one hour.

Wrap the wreathe once with yarn, tie knot, then secure with dot of glue. Spend 30 minutes wrapping the wreathe with yarn, finish the same way you started, securing knot with glue. This area will be covered with your grouping of poinsettia's.

For the "hot glued" poinsettia's, we pinched/glued each petal at the base, alternating petal sizes and glueing them together. Once the circle of petals was full enough and completed, we then snagged 3 wired berries from the embellishment and forced the wires through the center. This covered all the hot glue, made the poinsettia much more pretty and gave us something to help secure the flower to the wreathe form.

For the small flower sewn together...we layed alternating sized petals in a row, then simply ran one knotted thread through each petal and pulled it tight, securing with a knot! This method was uber easy!

Super easy wreathe to make with the classic colors of Christmas.
Hope you try making this poinsettia wreathe for your home or as a great holiday gift!

We played with the idea of hanging it inside, over our curtains, we tried hanging it outside, since our front porch is covered. But in the end, we choose to be "normal" and just hang it on the front door!

Share with me what Christmas decorations you've made for your home!
Are you ever inspired to create your own design? 
Ever "wing" it and ignore the directions?
