Poinsettias are the ultimate Christmas flower, and now that we have our Winter Garden Collection of heavy crepe paper, we couldn’t wait to show off our new design for crepe paper poinsettias. This is our first crepe paper poinsettia, so we had to make it a good one! Poinsettias generally come in white and red, which fits perfectly with our holiday color palette. We used 6 out of the 10 colors to bring these crepe poinsettias to life, but you can really use any of the colors in the 10 pack. We especially love heavy crepe paper for poinsettias because the deep veins give it the gorgeous thick texture that you see in real poinsettias.
- Craft Scissors
- Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4 (optional)
- Low-Temp Hot Glue Gun
- Needle-Nose Pliers/Wire Cutters
- Lia Griffith Heavy Crepe Paper – Snowflake, Egg Nog, Cherry, Ruby, Merlot, Juniper
- 18-Gauge Green Paper Covered Wire
- Floral Tape — Fern & Moss
In our photos you can see the colors Snowflake, Egg Nog, Cherry (formerly named Peppermint), Ruby (formerly named Holly Berry), Merlot (formerly named Bordeaux), and Juniper (formerly named Pistachio). You can use other shades of green, such as Basil (formerly named Spearmint) and Evergreen (formerly named Pine) to create some variation in the leaves of your crepe paper poinsettias. Be sure to browse all of our papers in our shop.
We would consider this an intermediate level project, but we absolutely encourage you to try it out even if you are a beginner. Unlike other crepe paper flowers, you won’t have to stretch the paper at all for this project.
UPDATE: We no longer carry the Floristic 10-Pack as shown in the video below. You can use our single rolls of crepe paper listed above!
Once you finish your poinsettias, you can use them for all kinds of holiday styling. Create a gorgeous wreath to hang on your front door, or use them to elevate your gift wrapping this year. Look forward to plenty more poinsettia tutorials for making a stunning holiday. Browse all of our projects using our crepe paper!

Love these Poinsettias! Can you provide the measurements for the finished flower and that of an individual leaf? I’m thinking I might like to make a garland for the holidays.
The largest petal/leaf is 4.5 inches long. A finished flower is about 8-10 inches wide depending on how they are constructed.
I love this flower also.i William try IT this weekend.
so so jumping for joy i cut my first crape paper with my cricut maker……i made a poinsettia….
How exciting!! We love our Maker too, can’t wait to see what you make with yours next!

is the svg for the poinsettia coming out soon?
It’s available now 🙂
These papers look sooo beautiful .Are they available in India ?
Thank you! Unfortunately we are only able to sell in the US and UK but hope to one day expand worldwide!
Hi Lia! Is the hot glue necessary for these beautiful crepe paper flowers? If not, do you have any recommendations as to what kind of glue/adhesive would work as well? I’m just a klutz when using hot glue guns ? Thank you in advance!
You could certainly try something else but hot glue is seriously the best. Get yourself a low temp version, it has saved my fingers 🙂
Are any of your paper packs/craft packs available in the UK?
Not yet 🙁 We are doing everything we can to have the paper available outside the US!
