How to Make a Christmas Poinsettia Wreath

Welcome the Christmas season with a poinsettia wreath. Make this easy DIY wreath with a faux poinsettia's, greenery, ribbon and a grapevine wreath.

What is it about poinsettia's that speaks Christmas? Is it the vibrant red? The seasonal availability? I'm not sure, but they are one of my favorites. So it was an easy decision to make a poinsettia wreath.

How to Make a Christmas Poinsettia Wreath

Can I tell you a little secret? This year will be the first year in many that I've had a Christmas wreath on my front door?  I used to have an old hand-me-down wreath.  I didn't really like it, so I got rid of it. Each year since then Christmas would come and go before I had a chance to make one.  I never seemed to see any that I wanted to buy. So, I'm excited to put this on my front door this year.

When it came time to determine what type of wreath to make, two things played a factor.

1 - I wanted it to be easy
2 - I already had the poinsettia's from last year. {I bought them for a project I didn't have time to complete}
