Guys. I made this Felt Poinsettia Yarn Wreath two years ago. Two years. That’s how long it has taken me to get this post finished. What the heck? I think I need to start making my Christmas projects in June, because by the time holiday season rolls around, I’m so busy that I have a hard time finishing projects, let alone getting them photographed. Yikes!
Felt Poinsettia Christmas Wreath- easy to make with this step by step tutorial!

Last year I displayed this pretty wreath on my Ballard Design knock-off shelves. I’m not sure where it will reside this year. Maybe on my mirror in the entry way. Maybe on the mantle. Who knows. For these shots, it’s actually hanging on the garage door, because that’s where I could find the best light. Ha.
How to make a gorgeous Poinsettia Yarn Christmas Wreath
It’s one of my favorite Christmas wreaths to date, and it’s pretty simple to make. The only part that takes awhile is wrapping the yarn around the wreath form. So pop in a Christmas movie and get wrapping!

Pattern for felt poinsettias, and instructions for using them to make this yarn Christmas wreath.

Felt Poinsettia Yarn Wreath

-Styrofoam wreath form
Poinsettia pattern
Fabric scissors
-Red and green felt
Wonder Under Fusible Web
Tiny white beads
-Needle and thread
Hot Glue Gun and glue sticks

Print out the pattern for the poinsettia, and cut it out with sharp scissors. To make the base of the flower more sturdy, trace the poinsettia pattern onto the paper side of the wonder under. Cut around it, and iron it onto your felt. Use the poinsettia leaf pattern to cut out five felt leaves. (The leaves don’t need to be backed with Wonder Under.)

Sew or hot glue the ends of the flower petals together. I prefer to just use a needle and thread, because it makes it easier to attach the beads later. Then glue them on top of the solid flower piece, staggering the petals.
