When I saw the huge red and green felt stockings at the Dollar Tree, I just knew I had to make another poinsettia wreath. This wreath was made with one stocking and a wreath form which I cut from a leftover box. So yes, it cost $1! Felt can be expensive, and this is a fantastic way to get a lot of it, in Christmas colors, for next to nothing. This particular felt makes a gorgeous flower. I bought three of the stockings and am busy making more of these gorgeous wreaths for Christmas gifts.
Dollar Tree Stocking
Sizzix and Poinsettia Die
2 circular items to trace onto cardboard to cut out a donut for your wreath form
Pen or marker for tracing onto cardboard
Trace plate or whatever circular items you have onto cardboard and cut out wreath form like I showed you previously:
Wrap your cardboard donut with tape to reinforce and protect.
Cut your poinsettia petals and leaves with your die or template. Assemble flower and use straight pin to stick onto wreath form. For detailed flower assembly, see my paper poinsettia wreath post. The process for felt is the same, but you don’t fold and shape the leaves like you do with paper.
You will likely have excess straight pin sticking through the back of your wreath. Carefully trim flush with wreath form using wire cutters. Wear eye protection for this part!
