It’s that time of year again and I am so excited for the holidays. This year we have decided to make our Christmas presents. What started off as a daunting task has turned into a crafters heaven. I wanted to make every little detail of the presents so today I am going to show you how I made poinsettias to add to the outside of the packages when I wrap them. I used gold craft wire to create the poinsettias ( sorry, I didn’t take photos of that step) and filled the petals in with read and green nail polish. I had seen this technique on pintrest and I was not sure if it would work or not. Here are my results.
I twisted and spun the poinsettia as the drop rolled down the sides of the petal. I let it dry a minute in between adding drops of nail polish and repeating the process until the entire petal was covered.
Did you try this craft? Let me know how it worked for you in the comments below:
