Poinsettia Wreath for Under $20!December 13, 2013 | FILED UNDER: Wreaths, Christmas
I’m typically not a fan of artificial flowers, however I make an exception for poinsettias. The flowers in this DIY poinsettia wreath are very hard to distinguish from the real thing, and dare I say even look better!

I had bought a plain evergreen wreath for our front door, but it wasn’t doing for me. It needed a big injection of color! I headed to the craft store for some poinsettias and a grapevine wreath. It turns out making your own poinsettia wreath is a lot less expensive than buying a pre-made one. You can make this wreath for under $20 in under 20 minutes!
Save the most money by taking advantage of the 50% off of floral that occur regularly at Hobby Lobby and Michaels.
Supplies for DIY Poinsettia Wreath
- Artificial poinsettia “bushes” (I used three bushes. You can get them on sale for around $5 each at Hobby Lobby)
- Grapevine wreath
- Wire cutters
- (Optional) Hot glue (I ended up not using it)
How to Make the Wreath
Step 1: Cut flowers from stems
Use wire cutters to cut each flower off the bush leaving a few inches of stem:
Step 2: Insert flowers into wreath
Insert the flower into the wreath. It should stick nicely into the grapevine wreath without glue. I didn’t end up using glue because I liked the option of being able to take out the flowers down the road and use the wreath form for something else.
Step 3: Continue until wreath is full
Keep working your way around the wreath adding as many flowers as you want.
This DIY poinsettia wreath honestly takes 15 minutes to make and you can make it for under $20. I was happily surprised with how nice it looks on our front door. The fake flowers on the wreath look better than the real potted poinsettias below it – I’ll be lucky if I keep them alive until Christmas!
If you don’t make this for this Christmas, I would recommend hitting up your local craft store during their after Christmas clearance and buying a few bushes to use for next year.
