Overlap the blunt ends of large petals to form four-petal flowers; secure with glue. Overlap the blunt ends of small petals to form four-petal flowers; glue.
Twist a 12" length of wire around the middle of each flower, leaving 6" tails underneath.
Glue small petals onto large ones to form poinsettias. Glue cedar balls to the centers of the poinsettias. Secure the poinsettias onto the wreath with the wires. Tuck holly leaves around the poinsettias. If you'd like, give the wreath a light dusting with white or silver spray paint.
