For Christmas last year, I decided to make poinsettia gift decorations using french beaded techniques.  I'd never tried it before and perhaps I should have started with something smaller, but I was really happy with the way they came out.   They're a lot heavier than I expected!

I chose white, silver, light gold, and light green beads.





The stems were wrapped with white floral tape so they could be used as a decoration throughout the year.
