paper poinsettia wreath

Welcome your guests with a modern touch of red and green! Create a fresh and minimal holiday wreath out of paper and faux evergreen using the Cricut® Maker™.
Step 1

First, click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™ and resize as desired. Lay cardstock flat on a light grip mat, follow the prompts to cut out each poinsettia. Repeat until you have the desired amount of poinsettias cut.

Step 2

Put each poinsettia together by layering the poinsettia petals on top of each other from largest to smallest. Create the jingle bell middles, by cutting a large piece of Gold floral wire and threading two bells to the middle of the wire. Fold the floral wire in half and twist the bells into place. Cut a new piece of wire and repeat this process again with three bells. Gather the two bunches of bells and twist them together, then thread the ends of the wire into the holes of the cut poinsettias so the bells sit in the middle.

Step 3

Glue the layers of the poinsettias together to hold them into place by adding a little dab of tacky glue to the middle of each layer and let dry.

Step 4

Once fully dry, create a more dimensional look by lightly pressing the edges of each petal together with your fingers. Continue around the whole flower until it looks full and dimensional.

Step 5

Weather proof the flowers by adding a light coat of Mod Podge® Ultra sealer. Lay down a piece of wax (or parchment) paper down to protect your surface and space out the poinsettias on top. Shake the bottle well before using and spray in a consistent motion until each poinsettia is lightly coated. Let the poinsettias dry for a few hours or until they are dry to the touch.

Step 6

Fluff out the wreath base by pulling apart each branch. Fill out the wreath even more by cutting apart the evergreen sprig and evenly distribute throughout the wreath. Bury each cut sprig into the wreath and secure it in place by twisting a branch around it from the wreath.

Step 7

Evenly space the poinsettias around the wreath before securing. Once happy with the placement, flip over the wreath and secure each poinsettia into place by wrapping the floral wire around the wreath base. Manipulate the evergreen branches around it to hide any wire.
TIP: Keep flipping over the wreath to check that the placement of the poinsettias are correct. Don’t pull the wire too tightly or the poinsettias will get buried too deep into the wreath.
