the holiday is over...
apron swap...

poinsettia napkin holder...

These are very fun to make.  You can use felt like I did or fleece.  The middle insert is just a tassel that you can buy at any fabric store.  You just tuck it in the middle.  I really don't suggest tacking or gluing it in, as you would want to take the napkin holder apart to store them for the next year, but you don't have to, you could just keep them together.

The measurements are the red flower is:

11 1/2 " long, and 3 1/4" wide at the widest part of the flower petals, and 3" wide at the middle.

The measurements for the green leaves are:

6 3/4" long and 4 1/4" wide at the widest part of the leaves, and 2 1/4" in the middle.

Cut 2 green leaves and 1 red flower with a hole in the middle of each green leaf and 1 hole in the red flower.  Make the hole size just big enough to be able to put the felt through.

I hope this all makes sense to you.

Step 1

 

The measurements are the red flower is:

11 1/2 " long, and 3 1/4" wide at the widest part of the flower petals, and 3" wide at the middle.

The measurements for the green leaves are:

6 3/4" long and 4 1/4" wide at the widest part of the leaves, and 2 1/4" in the middle.

Cut 2 green leaves and 1 red flower with a hole in the middle of each green leaf and 1 hole in the red flower. Make the hole size just big enough to be able to put the felt through.

I hope this all makes sense to you.

Step 2

 

Take the red "flower" end and slip it through the hole to make a tube and two flower petals.

Take the green leaves and slip both of the red "flower" ends through the center hole in the green leaves.

Take the other green leave and do the same as you did the first one.

Step 5

 

Stagger the green leaves so that you can see all the leaves, fluff out the red flower petals.

You can add a tassel to the middle for an added look.  I just stuck it in and did not glue it so that I could take it apart and store it for future use.
