Welcome to Day 11 of Pennywise Presents. Today we have the classy Kate from Centsational Girl here to show us how to make a poinsettia gift topper. It also doubles as a clip, brooch or barrette. Click “read more” to get the full tutorial…
Season’s greetings IC readers ! It’s me, Kate a.k.a. Centsational Girl, guest posting in Beckie’s ‘Pennywise Presents’ series!
The challenge? A simple holiday craft or gift under $10 dollars. The mission: create three fabulous felt gift toppers for under $10 dollars. Last year, I made some fun poinsettia pillows, and this year I crafted smaller versions just for Beckie’s readers!
Step One: Cut out 8 large petals, 4 to 8 small petals, square base, and 2 leaves. You can use this helpful template for sizing.
You could also use them on a lapel, as a wine bottle decoration, on a stocking, or pinned to a pillow for festive flair. Hop on over to my blog if you’d like to see two more examples of my felt poinsettias! Enjoy! Thanks so much Beckie for having me here today!
