Materials Needed:

  • colored felt by the yard
  • chalk or marker
  • tape measure
  • fabric scissors
  • needle
  • spool of thread
  • hot glue
  • buttons
  • thick craft paper
  • rhinestones or crystals

Draw a Leaf Stencil and Cut Out

Place craft paper on a flat, level surface. Use marker or chalk to trace a leaf pattern directly onto the craft paper. Tip: If you're not confident free-handing a leaf silhouette, grab a dry leaf from the yard, lay it flat onto the craft paper and trace around the edges. Using the traced silhouette as your guide, cut out the leaf stencil from the craft paper with scissors.

Trace Leaf Stencil Onto Felt and Cut Out

Once leaf stencil has been cut and removed from sheet of thick craft paper, place it directly onto the felt. Trace along the outside edges of the stencil with chalk or marker. Cut the traced leaf silhouette from the felt with fabric scissors.

Repeat Tracing and Cutting

Repeat steps 1 and 2 until all leaf silhouettes have been cut from felt. Tip: For proper symmetry and scale, it's best to give each poinsettia 5 or 6 leaves.
