Happy holidays, creative friends! Have you jumped head first into Christmas projects yet?? I have run out of places to display my Christmas craft projects, but I just keep creating! Ha! I am so excited to share a fun backdrop display for your next Christmas party, and it costs just a few dollars to make! With just two rolls of crepe paper sheets, you can make some lovely oversized poinsettia craft flowers. I promise they are super easy!
Giant poinsettia craft supplies:
- Darice Crepe Paper sheets in Red
- Darice Crepe Paper Sheets in Green
- Scissors & Pencil
- Darice Wood Beads
- Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Low-Tack Adhesive
- Gold Craft Paint
- 1/4″ Paintbrush
For one flower, cut about nine red petals. Repeat with the green crepe paper, cutting about six petals for the base of your flower. Don’t worry about your leaves being perfect. They look better when they vary a little bit!
Using your hot glue gun, layer your green leaves on top of each other. Your leaf base will use about six leaves.
Repeat with your red petals, making sure you stagger the width between each one. I used nine petals for each of my flowers. When you have glued them all together, flip your flower over and gently scrunch the middle gently. This will give your flower a little more depth and dimension.
Our fun little holiday soiree is next week, and I think I will keep these up until Christmas! They are a much better alternative since I am a person that kills plants and flowers as soon as I bring them home. Ha!
Happy holiday crafting, and have fun with that crepe paper!
