Step 3

Assemble the poinsettia flower! With a bit of glue, adhere the bigger petals in a star shape, making sure they touch at the bottom. Then, place the smaller petals on top of the bigger ones, alternating, so the ends stick out. Continue with the third layer of petals until you’ve placed all of them. Finally, glue the yellow pistil on top and the green leaves on the back of everything.

What I’d do differently

If you want to give poinsettia crafts as handmade gifts, all you have to do is put a homemade Christmas card on it and give it to all family members. You can also decorate your mason jar crafts with them to give these great gifts an even more festive feel.

You can glue a piece of string on the back and use them as homemade ornaments too, or simply make these holiday crafts during winter break with your little ones. Christmas time will become even more special now!
