DIY Poinsettia Christmas Tree Instructions
- Spray paint on your golden candle holder (optional) and let dry for 12 to 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 some hot glue on the bottom of the stem and push the poinsettia into the foam cone. Keep in mind that if your stems are long enough and sharp enough, you may not need glue. My poinsettias needed glue so they wouldn’t fall off.
- Repeat this process until the tree is completely covered in poinsettias and the moss cone is no longer visible.
- Tie your bow around the top of the tree. You can use hot glue to fix it if you want.
- Glue the foam cone to the base of the candle holder, making sure it is centered.
