Poinsettias are the ultimate Christmas flower, and now that we have our line of holiday floristic crepe, we couldn’t wait to show off our new design for crepe paper poinsettias. This is our first crepe 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 our 10 new floristic colors to bring these crepe poinsettias to life, but you can really use any of the colors in the 10 pack. We especially love the floristic for crepe paper poinsettias because the deep veins give it the gorgeous thick texture that you see in real poinsettias.
Preparing Your Crepe Paper Poinsettia Materials:
In our photos you can see the colors Snowflake, Egg Nog, Peppermint, Holly Berry, Bordeaux and Pistachio. You can use the other two shades of green (Spearmint and Pine) to create some variation in the leaves of your crepe paper poinsettias, and who can resist a silver or gold poinsettia for metallic holiday decor. Find our floristic 10 pack and browse all of our papers in our shop. Each poinsettia petal is made up of two pieces glued together and attached to 20 gauge floral wire.
Crafting Your Crepe Paper Poinsettias:
Our crepe paper poinsettias are the first Christmas project that we are adding to our Craft School video collection. You can find the full materials list and video tutorial here! 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.
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, or find the projects you can specifically make with our floristic crepe. To celebrate the addition of this gorgeous new material to our crepe collection, we are holding a giveaway to win a pack of our holiday floristic pack! Enter to win before Sunday, November 20, 2016, and then we’ll pick two winners to receive our heavy crepe in a holiday color palette. Enjoy! ~ Lia and the Team
