Make some beautiful paper poinsettias for Christmas!
This printable template can be used in multiple ways. Create a string of poinsettia lights with them or place individual flowers strategically over lights already on your tree. You could also use a yellow dot sticker in the centre instead of a light to create a single paper flower, or string a number of flowers together to make a festive garland.
To make them you will need red and green construction paper. If you are stringing them onto lights like I have be sure to use LED lights because they emit no heat. You will find that most Christmas lights are LED, but please double check to be sure (anything else will be a fire hazard).
