Poinsettia Foil Plant Pot Make Over

Nothing says “Christmas is Here!” like the arrival of those gorgeous Poinsettia plants. However that foil that they’re wrapped in takes away from their beauty and elegance, so this year I decided to give mine a little make over.

All you’ll need is:

  1. Roll of Burlap Ribbon
  2. Red ribbon with wire
  3. Glue Gun
  4. Scissors

*Before you begin, remove the foil from your pots and if using a fake poinsettia plant, remove the stems as well.

Step 1:

Cut 4 strips of burlap ribbon, 24″ long, 4 Strips of wired red ribbon,  6″ long and 1 Strip of wired red ribbon, 20″ long

Once your foam pot is covered in burlap, you’re going to cover each of the four seams with the 6″ red wired ribbon. Glue in place.
