In my post last week, I said I would show you how to make a white crepe paper poinsettia wreath. So here it is, as promised! While red poinsettia plants are always a popular choice for Christmastime, I think white poinsettias are just as classic. Today I’m showing you how to make these gorgeous white poinsettias out of crepe paper and attach them to a twig wreath.
This rustic holiday wreath would look beautiful on your front door now throughout winter. You could also place it above your mantel or hang it on a wall.
I’m Dreaming of a White Poinsettia
This wreath features creamy white poinsettias, tinged with light pink and a light, bright green. You can achieve this color combo with my extra-fine crepe paper in linen and two colors from my PanPastel set. If you haven’t used PanPastel pigments to color your flowers before, you may want to watch this video for guidance.
Along with my white crepe paper, I chose two different greens for the leaves underneath. I used the same green PanPastel here as well to color my leaves. The photo tutorial at the end of this post will give you a better idea of what this looks like.
The photo tutorial will also show you step-by-step how to create your own white crepe paper poinsettia wreath. Or you can watch this video tutorial to see how I put it together. The video will give you some other ideas, too, for how to decorate with poinsettias for the holidays.
To simplify this DIY idea a bit, you could always skip coloring your poinsettias. Whatever you decide to do, I’d love to see your version!
