How To Make A Felt Poinsettia with Gift Tags

Dress up your holiday packages this year with pretty Poinsettias.  They make a beautiful addition to your holiday packages and you can make them in any color to match your wrapping paper.  They are so pretty to have around the house this time of year. Other things you can do with them is glue them onto a holiday wreath, pin them onto a stocking or pillow, make a poinsettia garland, use as a gift topper, a tree ornament, a magnet or even wear them.

They are made from felt, which is super easy to work with.  There is NO sewing!  The tutorial is very easy and it’s a craft even children can do.

    You have been on a crafting roll this holiday season! My daughter (age 8) and I will have to try our hand at making these. We just made felt bird ornaments through her 4H club last weekend. We love felt too!

      Thank you for visiting! I think they would look so nice glued onto a wreath, it’s on my ‘to do’ list.

      They are so easy to make and very festive, indeed! 🙂
