Poinsettia Swag

Make a pretty, 15′ [4.57 m]-long swag of cut poinsettias to drape along a wall, fireplace mantel, or chair rail. It’s an easy way to decorate your home for the holidays.


Step 1: Cut blooms from poinsettias and leave 3″ to 4″  [7.62 cm to 10.16 cm] stems. (The colourful leaves are called bracts).

Step 2: Remove the lower leaves and thread through chain and into a floral pick (available from florists) filled with water.

Step 3: Accent with additional green leaves threaded through the chain.

Step 4: Hang the chain with adhesive mini hooks. Check the water daily. Blooms can last up to two weeks.
