Want to add a holiday touch to your outfit or gift?  Here's a quick and pretty poinsettia you can whip up quickly...no sewing required!  Each part (leaves, stem, center) is worked up in just one round and glued.  This poinsettia makes a festive pin, but you can also add it to a headband, tote bag, or a beautiful gift topper!

Instructions for petals and leaves:


(Make 3 Red and 3 Green)

Chain 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 1: In the center of the ring, work 6 dc, 4 sc, 1 tr, 4 sc. Join with a slip stitch to close leaf and fasten off.

Join with a slip stitch to close leaf and fasten off.  Weave in all ends.

Instructions for poinsettia center:

(Make 3 Yellow)

Ch 3 and work 6 sc in ch furthest from hook. Join to close with a sl st.  Weave in any ends.


Finishing & Assembly:

Cut the felt into a 2 inch circle.  Using a hot glue gun, place the leaves down first (I positioned mine in a triangle shape) along the edge of the felt.  Next, add a layer of 6 red petals, overlapping them slightly in a circular fan shape.  Do not over glue, as it will flatten the flower.  Try to just glue the bottom edges of petals/leaves to the felt and stick them on.  Finish by adding 3 yellow dots to the center of the flower, overlapping them as shown in the photos.  If you wish to make yours into a pin, glue pin backing to back of flower.  Let dry/cool completely before using.
