Here’s a very fun way to make your own poinsettia present topper that looks fancy but is actually very quick and easy. I used a 12×12 piece of scrapbook paper, but you can use any thick paper like a grocery store paper bag or brown craft paper. These turn out super cute and you can even make a bunch and use for a wreath, Christmas tree ornaments, or table décor.
Piece of scrapbook paper or thick paper
hot glue gun and glue stick
embellishment (buttons, beads, sequins, faux berries)
Remember in school how you would fold a piece of paper in half and cut out hearts? Use the same strategy here except cut out a long leaf shape. By folding the paper in half, you are giving the leaves that cool 3D effect.
Fold paper and cut out 5 smaller leaves and 5 larger leaves. Don’t measure. My bigger leaves were around 3 inches and my smaller leaves about 2 inches. Keep folding sections of paper and cutting leaves. Also cut a circle to glue your leaves to.
Glue the 5 larger leaves to the circle first by using a small dot of glue at one end.
Glue the smaller leaves on top.
Add an embellishment in the middle. I happened to have these faux berries.
Tape or glue to your present.
Seriously so simple and cute, right? You can experiment with different sized flowers and add petals if it looks uneven. Happy holiday crafting!
