DIY {felt} Poinsettia Pin


These Poinsettia Pins are as fun to wear as they are to make.

I have to admit, I’ve been slacking in the kitchen a bit this holiday season.  But I  did put on my elf hat and have come up with another simple craft.  Recently I shared the waterless snow globes, and this week I’m excited to share these adorable Felt Poinsettia Pins I made!

They are very easy to make and don’t take much time.  I made pins to wear on a sweater, but they would also be cute pinned on to a stocking or pillow,  used as a gift topper, fridge magnet, or even a tree ornament.

You can make them any size using felt yardage, or simply using the felt sheets you can get at the craft stores, like I did.

*Please note that ALL of my measurement are approximate, there’s no need to be very specific, and you can make them any size you wish.

How to make a Felt Poinsettia Pin

What you need


(have linked most of these items to Amazon, but they can all be purchased at any craft store like Michaels or Hobby Lobby

  • Red or Cream Felt
  • Scissors
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • 1 inch bar pins
  • Acrylic Gems (or any object you’d like to put in the center)
  • tape measure or ruler (not shown)
  • lid or glass to trace 2-1/2 ” to 3″ circles (not shown)



1.  Fold sheet of felt in half lengthwise, and cut two strips 2′ wide, two strips 1.5″ wide and one strip 1″ wide.

2.  Keeping the felt strips folded in half (so you are cutting 2 at a time), you will cut rectangles for the leaves.  I just eyeballed  this; I cut the

  • 2″ strips into twelve 1′ wide rectangles (so they are now 2″x 1″)= 12 large
  • the 1.5″ strip into twelve 3/4″ wide rectangles (1½” x ¾” )= 12 medium,
  • the 1″ strips into six ½” rectangles (1″ x ½”) = 6 small

I then basically cut the corners off each rectangle, to make a leaf shape.

3.  I used a lid that’s was almost 3″ in diameter to trace and then cut a circle.

4.  You now should have; 1- 3″ circle, 12 – 2″ large leaves, 12 – 1½” medium leaves and 6 – 1″ small leaves


5.  Using the hot glue gun,  glue 6 large leaves on to the circle. (be careful not to burn yourself with the hot glue)

6.  Hot glue the remaining 6 large leaves on top of the first 6 leaves, spacing between the original six.

7.  Repeat the process with the medium and small leaves, until you reach the center and use up all of your leaves (depending on what size I cut my leaves sometimes I was able to use 6 small leaves, and sometimes I only got 5 small leaves to fit)

8.  Flip your pin over and glue the one inch bar pin to the center of the circle.

Glue your gem or embellishment to the center and your done!!

So cute on my shirt!!

      I’m a little confused, there is no template to download and I don’t know what you mean about going through
      All of the directions are in the post.
