How to Make Lighted Poinsettia Garland – Step by Step Tutorial

We are moving on to week two with our DIY Christmas Decor Ideas!
Last week I showed you how to deck out your paper flowers or any old ornament or object in gold spray paint to give it new life. If you missed it check it out here, Golden Christmas Inspirations.
 
This week I’m sharing a lighted paper poinsettia garland. These are great for mantels or Christmas trees! 
 
Supplies you will need:
    • White Christmas lights
    • Red & gold paper (65 lb weighted) 
    • Templates 
    • If you want the whole poinsettia template then click here. You can use the SVG with a cutting machine or use the outline PDF to cut by hand.) 
 
The version I’m showing here are the same templates as the free ones except I shot this tutorial without the intention of using it with the lights so the only difference is the hole is the center. 
 
There is also a full video tutorial for building the original poinsettia below. 
If you are making the garland just glue around the hole and follow the same steps. 

Step 1

You will need 3 large petal cuts and 2 small as shown.

Step 2

Use your rolling tool to create veins on all the petals.

Step 3

Then flip them over and roll the center to make the petals stand up. 

Step 4

Layer the first 3 pieces on top each other alternating petals. 

Step 5

Add to the two smaller petal cuts. 

Step 6

If you are not doing the lighted garland then you can add some pearls as center accents.

If you are doing the lite garland then simply push the flower over the light threw the circle.

    1. So pretty and pet owners do not have to worry about their animals eating fallen poinsettia petals or leaves.
      Seeing your pearls as the pistils gave me the idea to use the small white or yellow round lights for the poinsettia center rather than using regular Christmas lights.
