Poinsettia Wreath

Here is another wreath I made just last week. It wasn't within my original plan but I ended up giving one of the ones I'd already presented away as a Christmas gift so I needed to make another one for that wreath's original planned receiver. I started off by wrapping it in some dark green yarn I'd found in my closet. Apparently I wanted to make a scarf out of it but completely forgot I'd bought it! It was such a nice color and perfect for Christmas!

I took some extra leaves from past projects and made them into a little flower - almost like a poinsettia. First I glued on the white and ended up not having enough left over so I very sneakily had to pull some off of this one that no one would notice. I only took two, I swear! Sorry other wreath! After my theft, I glued the gold leaves on top.

Then I added a little jingle bell in the center.

I finished by wrapping an old gold bead chain we had lying around. It didn't match the one we put on our Christmas tree so I put it to good use! Lastly, I added a sheer red ribbon for hanging to match the bell. Easy-peasy!

Stay tuned for two more wreath tutorials this week!

  1. I love how simple this is! You did a really nice job on all the wreaths but this one is my favorite. I really like the chunky beads. I'm a new follower via Mingle With Us Blog Hop.
