Trace the size of circle you want. My deviled egg plate was the perfect size!
Cut out your circle.
Pull the leaves and flowers off the stems.
Clip the stems off the leaves. There were no wires so normal scissors worked on mine.
Because these leaves are so large you will need to put a broad strip of glue at the base to hold them down.
Begin gluing on the green leaves around the edge of your felt piece overlapping as shown. If you find that some are lifting up just add a little glue to tack them down more.
You can choose to do as many green and red rows as you like depending on the number of leaves you have of each. I did two rows of green then started on the red.
Offset the leaves as you go along, continuing to overlap them. Make these elegant poinsettia Christmas placemats using a large piece of felt, some artificial poinsettias and hot glue. They also make a great centerpiece! Once I got to the center it took five small leaves to finish it off.
The back looks nice and clean.
