Print and cut out our downloadable petal templates.
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.
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.
Punch a hole in the unfolded ends of the petals, about a half-inch from the tip.
Thread the six large petals onto the thicker half of a threaded post, then do the same with the small petals. Gently tighten.
Fan out the petals to get an arrangement you like, then tighten all the way to hold them in place.
For a little extra bling, hot-glue an ornament to the center of the poinsettia.
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.
