I got the idea for these from a drink I had in a bar with a palm tree skewer in it and thought "wow these would be great for my chocolate fountain at out annual cookie exchange"
So I put together about 100 of these while watching "Julie and Julia" on DVD the other evening.
This is my first tutorial so please bear with me.
Supplies

Low temp glue gun and sticks
Barbecue skewers
pipe cleaners with "puffs" on them in red and white
yellow pom poms
regular green pipecleaners
scissors or wire cutters

1st cut puff pipe cleaner into sections so that you have the leaves of the poinsettia

Apply glue to blunt end (top) of skewer and place 5 "leaves" around the top.

squeeze leaves onto skewer and wrap with 1/2 inch piece of green pipe cleaner on the bottom of bloom.

Fold and bend down leaves to form flower.

Apply small dot of glue in the middle and top with yellow pom pom.

 You can use multiple tiny poms if you wish but I couldn't find any small enough to my liking so I went with these.

Place on your table or in your tree as picks and dazzle your guests like you know you can.

C and C encouraged. Roll Eyes
Thanks for looking
Jill

This is a really cute idea.  I have no idea what I would ever use them for, but they do look good all together like that.

Thanks!  We used them as fondue skewers for our chocolate fountain.  The kids had a good time skewering strawberries and marshmallows and the adults used them as swizzle sticks in their cocktails.  What we have left over are going on our tree.
