How to Make the Poinsettia Garland

  1. Cut out flower petal and leaf shapes from red and green crepe paper, respectively. (You'll need 6-8 red petals and 3-4 green leaves for each poinsettia.)
  2. Hot-glue red wires to red petals and green wires to green leaves.
  3. Gently fold the petals and leaves for dimension.
  4. Hot-glue one stamen to the end of a new piece of green wire.
  5. Use florists tape to attach the petals and leaves to the wire stem around the stamen. Trim extra wire.
  6. Weave flowers through cording.
