Hello everyone, its Stacey and this week on the craft table I’ve been making some jingly poinsettias.
- Mini jingle bells – I bought mine from eBay
- Floral wire
- Floral tape
- Ruby Red Plain Card 240gsm
- Christmas Red Plain Card 240gsm
- Glue gun
You’ll need to begin by creating your red poinsettia leaves. You want a range of different sizes. I created about four different sizes and a bunch of different leaf shapes. Once you've made your leaves, it's time to make the centre of your plant.
You’ll need a handful of bells of the centre of each poinsettia.

Using the floral wire, you’ll need to secure each bell onto a single piece of wire.
Once all bells are assembled, secure the stems with floral tape.
Start glue gunning your leaves around the bells, smallest sized first.
As you build outwards start adding larger petals.
I attached five layers worth of leaves. If you want bigger, keep adding!
Hey presto you've got yourself a homemade paper poinsettia.
