How to Make a Buffalo Check Poinsettia Wreath
Let’s get started with our no ribbon challenge! Grab your grapevine wreath and add a wreath hanger with your 18 gauge wire on the top of your wreath. Insert the wire and twist it tight, then make a loop to use as your hanger and secure it on the other side by twisting the wire on itself. Clip the wire using your wire cutters.
Take a pine stem and clip into two pieces with your wire cutters. Dip the end in your hot glue and add into the top of your wreath. Cover the glue with some Spanish moss if necessary. Do the same with another piece of pine and add to the bottom of your wreath. Add another pine stem with your hot glue on the left side of your wreath, and another pine underneath the last one, securing with your hot glue.
Next grab your cyress stem with berries and pinecones and use your wire cutters to separate it into 7 or 8 smaller pieces of greenery. Some will have berries and some will just be the cypress. Cut off any excess on the bottom also. Dip a small piece of cedar into your hot glue and add underneath the pine at the top of your wreath. Add another cypress piece above the left pine greenery. Find a cypress piece with some berries and hot glue into the bottom of your wreath. Add one more cypress with berries piece by hot gluing into the left side of your wreath.
Fill in with some more cypress by hot gluing some on the left of your wreath towards the middle, and another piece to the right of your top pine greenery. Add another cypress berry piece into the top of your wreath. Don’t forget to cover any hot glue spots with some Spanish moss.
Next let’s use our buffalo check poinsettias. Go ahead and fluff out the pedals and clip off a few inches off the bottom with your wire cutters. Add your first poinsettia into the top of your wreath with hot glue. Do the same and add a poinsettia into the bottom of your wreath. Use your hot glue to add the last poinsettia on the left of your wreath.
Grab a few more Vermont pine stems and let’s add them into our wreath. Use your hot glue to add some Vermont pine into the top, behind your poinsettia. Add another piece of Vermont pine in between the left and bottom poinsettia flowers. Hot glue another Vermont pine piece to the right of your top flower and one more above the middle poinsettia.
Take your eucalyptus stem and pull it apart into three pieces. Clip a few inches off the bottom with your wire cutters and dip the bottom in your hot glue. Place the eucalyptus stem in between the top and middle poinsettia. Add another eucalyptus stem underneath the middle poinsettia. Take one more and add it into your wreath to the top right of your bottom poinsettia.
Add some more Vermont pine by hot gluing a piece on top of the bottom poinsettia and one more just to the right as well. Grab one more pine piece and add it with your hot glue just above the middle poinsettia.
Take some of your left-over cypress stems and clip off some red berries. Add your berries to the right of your top poinsettia. Dip another berry stem and add it above your bottom poinsettia.
Grab your dusty miller stem and clip into a few different pieces with your wire cutters. Add some dusty miller with your hot glue just above the middle poinsettia. The dusty miller will help tie in the green from the eucalyptus. Add another piece of dusty miller to the right of your bottom poinsettia. Place another dusty miller to the right of your top poinsettia. Dip another piece of dusty miller into your hot glue and add it underneath your top poinsettia. Place your last piece of dusty miller just underneath your middle flower.
