Christmas Crafts: Felt Poinsettia
I thought I’d share a bit of advent crafts with you (elving is taking place secretly in the evenings, so most the photos are featuring some very cozy lighting).
Now, I had to look up the name of that plant. In German, it’s called Weihnachtsstern, Christmas Star, just right for the season!
My mother uses a smaller version of decorations like these on her Christmas tree; she made hers some thirty years ago at a crafts evening at my sister’s kindergarten!
They are super quick and easy to make, and look very sweet.
