Poinsettia DIY Christmas Tree Instructions
- Spray paint your candle holder gold (optional) and let it dry for 12-24 hours.
- Paint your foam cone red and let it dry. It takes about 15 minutes to dry.
- Remove the poinsettia stems from the bushes.
- Dab a little hot glue on bottom of the stem and push the poinsettia into the foam cone. Keep in mind, if your stems are long enough and sharp enough you may not need the glue. My poinsettias needed the glue to keep from falling out.
- Repeat this process until the tree is completely covered in poinsettias and the foam cone is no longer visible.
- Tie your bow around the top of the tree. You could use hot glue to secure it to place if you wish.
- Glue the foam cone to the base of the candle holder, making sure it is centered properly.
