Take your fairy lights and firstly check they work, then create a circle roughy 25cms in diameter. Wrap the last bit of wire around the top to hold it in place.

Take your dark red felt and cut out 6 poinsettia flowers roughly 7cms in diameter. You can find lots of templates on Pinterest to help you with the shape. Cut 3 poinsettias in the lighter red. Cut 6 green leaves.

Layer 3 flowers together, sticking them down with the ultimate glue in-between layers, then glue two leaves to the back of each flower. Leave to dry.
