Poinsettia Global Ornament

Today I was thinking Christmas, and I had these half globes in my stash drawer, and decided I needed to use them to create something fun.  I came up with a Poinsettia filled Christmas Ornament, what do you think?

I decided to use the Nature’s Roots Framelits Dies to create my poinsettia flower and leaves.  

 

I cut the poinsettia from Real Red Cardstock, and the leaves from Mossy Meadow Cardstock.  Behind the poinsettia I used the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.  I also sponged both the Real Red, and Mossy Meadow Cardstock with the coordinating Real Red and Mossy Meadows Classic Inks and a Sponge Dauber.

I didn’t have a die in my stash large enough to fit around the ornament globe, so I took some Thick Whisper White Cardstock and placed the globe on it and traced it, then used my Paper Snips to cut the circle.  I then added the Wood Textures DSP to the cut Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  

I punched a 1″ piece of Real Red Cardstock and used this as my “base” to adhere the stems and Mossy Meadow Leaves together with some Hot Glue, and using  Silicone Mat.

I then punched a 1/2″ Circle Punch piece of Real Red Cardstock and adhered the Basic Pearls and adhered it to the center of the poinsettia.  Next, I added some Foam Adhesive Strips to the bottom of the poinsettia and adhered to the base I created for the back of the globe.  Using my hot glue gun, I adhered the globe to the top of the poinsettia. 

I added some Mossy Meadow Cotton twine (for the side of the globe) from the Festive Farmhouse Twine in the 2018 Holiday Catalog and Real Red 3/8″ Mixed Satin Ribbon for the top bow and hanger.

I couldn’t get a super good photo of the poinsettia, but it really look gorgeous in person.  This would be a fantastic gift for a ornament exchange party or as a give to someone who will cherish your handmade gift, like me  🙂

  4. So beautiful. Can’t wait to try this and use them as sort of a “gift” tag keepsake for some of those special people in my life. Thank you for showing us a beautiful way to use Nature’s Roots.
    BTW, your site is beautiful !!

  5. Gloria, this is magnificent. I was just asking a friend if she could think of a great poinsettia die from a US-based supplier, as I want to try to make one, or several, out of foamiran to place on napkin rings or Christmas crackers. What fabulous inspiration you have provided. I never, ever would have considered using this set to make a poinsettia. This set is already on my “to order” list so hopefully I can order it in October, or November at the latest. I think your ornament is truly beautiful, and while I am not a red and green Christmas person, I can see this poinsettia in a myriad of colors, even ivory with pink blushes around the edges, or even gold for my friend whose Christmas theme is mostly gold. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this, and your creativity. You have saved me hours of searching for a perfect poinsettia die and provided me with inspiration for gifts for people here in my apartment complex. Bless your heart! (I have added my blog below but it has been very inactive since all my orthopedic surgeries started).
