Deco Mesh Poinsettia Flower
Deco mesh flowers are easy to make and I just love how forgiving they are! When you cut the mesh the pieces they don’t have to be perfect, yet the flowers still turn out beautiful.
I decided I wanted to add lights to my deco mesh poinsettia because after all, it’s Christmas! So I bought a box of 20 warm white LED mini lights.
Instructions for Deco Mesh Flowers
Since I’ve already written a tutorial on this, I’m going to send you over to that post for the basic instructions. Here are a few pictures of my process on the poinsettia.
You will need:
- 6-inch (5 7/8) Styrofoam disc
- U-shaped floral pins
- 21-inch red decorative mesh
- 10-inch yellow decorative mesh
- 21-inch green decorative mesh
- Low-temp glue gun
- 20 warm white LED mini lights
- Ribbon or twine
Follow the instructions in this post for the “daisy or sunflower” to create the outer circle of the flower with red mesh.
I cut a few strips of red mesh and just looped them into the center by pinning one end into the disc, the making a loop and pinning, loop and pinning, etc.
After that, I cut squares from yellow to add to the center, the same fashion as doing the outside edges of the flower.
Then I turned it over and added four green squares and a ribbon hanger. Lastly, I used hot glue to attach the battery pack for the lights to the back and just strung them through the flower to the center.
