Stitch Leaves Together
Using needle and spool of thread, attach each of the cut-out felt leaves together in a circular formation. As several felt poinsettia leaves are stitched together, ensure a snug fit by pulling the thread tight and checking the bottom tip of each leaf for proper, consistent bunching.
To cover up the stitch marks on each leaf while also adding an extra layer of visual interest, place a button in the center of the poinsettia, keeping it held in place with hot glue.
Add Crystals or Rhinestones
Give your poinsettia a finished, sparkly look by adding a small crystal or rhinestone directly to the center of the button with hot glue.
