Project Resources


Step 1

Print and cut out our downloadable petal templates.

Step 2

Trace the petals on the matte side of the flashing six times each and cut these shapes out. You should have six large flashing petals and six small ones.

Step 3

Gently fold the flashing petals in half with the shiny side up, then tightly crease half the length of the fold as shown in the video.

Step 4

Punch a hole in the unfolded ends of the petals, about a half-inch from the tip.

Step 5

Thread the six large petals onto the thicker half of a threaded post, then do the same with the small petals. Gently tighten.

Step 6

Fan out the petals to get an arrangement you like, then tighten all the way to hold them in place.

Good to Know

For a little extra bling, hot-glue an ornament to the center of the poinsettia.

Step 7

All that's left is to display your latest creation. We tied fishing line around the threaded posts and hung our poinsettias on a stair railing, but feel free to display them anywhere.
