Here's how to create a Poinsettia from Clothespins:
To begin the Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Clothespin Poinsettia Ornament, gather all supplies. Remove the metal spring from the wooden clothespins. Line up five clothespins in a V shape on your work surface, and five in a straight line. Attach the wooden clothespin pieces together, alternating a V shape with a straight line to form the poinsettia shape, with a glue gun and glue sticks. Use the photo as a template. TIP: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Paint the front and all sides of the clothespin poinsettia flower with Santa Red acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry and apply a second coat, if necessary. I love using Americana Acrylics from DecoArt because they have excellent one-coat coverage on most surfaces.
Place circle template onto Red Kunin Felt and trace the outline of the 2 ¼” circle with the MONO Twin permanent marker. Carefully cut out the circle from the felt, cutting inside the traced lines for a clean, finished project. Glue felt to the back of the poinsettia ornament with a glue gun and glue sticks. The MONO Twin is my favorite permanent marker because it has a larger bullet tip and a small extra fine tip.
Cut a leaf shape out of Olive Green and Kelly Green Kunin Felt with scissors. Place a ½” line of glue at the base of each leaf and fold them in half to create dimension. Attach a variety of gold tinsel pom poms into the center of each clothespin poinsettia with a glue gun and glue sticks.
To finish the Dollar Tree Clothespin Poinsettia Ornament, cut a 12” length of natural jute twine, tie it in a loop with a knot, and attach it to the top of the back with a glue gun and glue sticks. Secure the leaves to the back of the flower, at an angle.
Dollar Tree Christmas DIY Clothespin Poinsettia Ornament
The perfect place card for Christmas dinner, fun tag for a holiday present, or ornament to hang on the tree! They are the perfect size for a tiered tray decoration. Craft these up with the kiddos and don’t forget to sign and date the back which will create a keepsake that you will cherish from year to year! I love reminiscing each year as we decorate the Christmas tree with all the handmade ornaments we have created together!
I live in Florida and we never get snow for the Holidays. That is why I am super excited to create a flurry of DIY Glittery Clothespin Snowflakes to celebrate Christmas in July. I gathered supplies from the Dollar Tree and others I had in my craft stash, plus my trusty glue gun. A blizzard is definitely in my future, even though the temps are in the 90's this week!
Creating and sharing hand-drawn files with y’all to print and then color is truly a joyful exercise for me. Today I am sharing a pair of Free Hand-Drawn Christmas Coloring Pages to download, print, and color. Perfect for the kiddos to color, but also lovely to frame as holiday decor.
Sharing is Caring!
