Welcome to the Holly Jolly Blog Hop! I can’t believe that it’s that time of year again! If you came here from Fantabulously Pink then you are in the right place. If not, start at the beginning so you won’t miss out on any of today’s great projects!
I decided to make a simple yet beautiful Christmas centerpiece – a Poinsettia Gift! I only used one Cricut cartridge for this, one of my favorites – Flowers Shoppe!
I started with three items purchased from the $ store – a 4x4 piece of Styrofoam and two different candle holders. I glued the flat candle holder onto the candle stick with E-6000 adhesive and wrapped the Styrofoam in some Christmas wrapping paper (just in case the base showed through the flowers)
For each poinsettia, I cut out two of the <Mum2> flowers at 2”, one more at 1.5” (page 21), and one <Sunflwr1> at 1.5” (page 17). I used the Hide Contour feature in Cricut CraftRoom to hide the holes in the flower centers. I inked the edges of the three flowers with Fired Brick and then cut the two largest flowers between two of the petals.
Using a mat and a petal roller, I shaped all three flowers – first from the back around the outside and then on the front just in the centers.
I then overlapped and glued the petals on the two larger flowers.
Then all three layers were glued in place, staggering the petals.
I rolled the spikey swirl and glued together. When they were dry, I lightly brushed them with Walnut Stain ink and glued them to the center of each poinsettia.
And here is my finished Christmas poinsettia!
I wrapped holiday ribbon around the Styrofoam and then hot glued all of the poinsettias to it. I plan on making two more of these in different sizes to place on the center of my table next month.
I hope that you enjoyed my holiday project and my quick tutorial. Next on the Hop is Betsy at BetsyBoo!
