We have made many versions of a poinsettia in the last 8 years, and the pink and white versions have always been my favorite. For this month’s Member Make workshop, we are taking things a step further and adding texture and color detail to create these watercolor crepe paper poinsettias.
To get ready for the workshop, check out our tools and materials list below. Then join our YouTube Live on November 19th at 11:00 am PT , or you can watch the video recording later.
Eat, pink, and be merry
These watercolor crepe paper poinsettias make such pretty holiday decor. If you’d like, you can also use them as gift toppers or give them away as gifts.
Although this flower is a step up from our previous poinsettias, it’s a great project for a beginner paper flower crafter. And it’s also fun for those of you who are advanced as we play with the effects of water on the crepe paper.
If you haven’t joined one of our live workshops before, make sure to read the steps below. Otherwise you can skip on down to the tools and materials list.
