We’ve been having so much fun thinking of new ways to create our favorite holiday flowers. Last week we used double-sided crepe paper to craft a Christmas cactus. And then we played around with color variations for our gorgeous crepe paper Hellebores. Today, our maker Angela was inspired to make a creamy combination of pink, peach, and yellow to add a light and feminine touch to these traditional Christmas flowers. Read on to see how you can make your own pink crepe paper poinsettia plants for the holidays!

Pretty in Pink

Aren’t these pink crepe paper poinsettia plants so pretty? You can achieve this pretty color fade with PanPastel pigments. Considering things like coloring your petals, building the stamen out of Sculpey clay, and petal placement, I would say this poinsettia is a great project for an intermediate or advanced crafter. 
 
If you need some guidance for blending your PanPastel pigment, you can watch this video for helpful tips on how to color your flowers. And if you have any questions while crafting these pink poinsettias, just ask. We’re here to help!

  1. Gather your tools and materials. Then download our poinsettias SVG file or PDF template.
  2. Using scissors or your cutting machine, cut crepe paper according to the template notes.
  3. To create the stamen, form your green clay into six pea-sized balls.
  4. Cut your white 26-gauge floral wire into six 4.5″ pieces. Stick the wire halfway through the ball. Bake according to instructions on Sculpey packaging.
