Fluffing out the flocked wreath

1. Fluff the wreath

I picked up this super-inexpensive wreath from Walmart. First things first, fluff it open so it looks nice. Pull apart each and every branch, straighten them out, and make sure that there are no gaps or spaces between.

2. Fluff the poinsettias

Now it's time to take this wreath to the next level with these poinsettias. I love red poinsettias; I think they're very fitting for this time of year.

Open up each and every petal. These are individually wired, so it makes it a lot easier to fluff them out.

Cutting off the wire ends

3. Cut off the ends

We're going to take our wire snips and snip the poinsettias off.

We're also going to keep the leaves because these are too beautiful to throw away. So we'll snip off each leaf individually as well.

5. Dip the poinsettia ends in a glue skillet

Right here is our glue skillet and we're just going to dip our stems in. This is an ingenious method of securing your products. I prefer my glue skillet over a glue gun any day.

6. Attach the poinsettias to the wreath

All we're going to do is glue the poinsettias right to the wreath. I have a total of five, but you can work in as many or as little as you would like.

If you only want to work in three, you can place them equally. If you want it to work in six, you could do the same.

7. Glue the leaves around the edge

Now let's come back in with the leaves that came off of these stems and work them around the perimeter. I want these on the outside. That way you're able to see them the best, and also it creates a larger wreath.

Berry stems

8. Add berries (optional)

After adding those, I think this wreath is done. I did have some berry stems, but the red is a little bit off and I think we already have enough red. If we were to work in any more, I think it would take away from the shape of the poinsettias.

Here is the finished DIY poinsettia wreath. I was expecting to work in more products other than just the poinsettias and the leaves that came with them. I think those paired with that flocked wreath base make the perfect wreath.

It doesn't take a whole lot of products or a whole lot of money to create something pretty for the holidays. In today's case, we used one of those cheap Walmart frames and covered it with five beautiful poinsettias.
