Poinsettias

I’m not gonna lie. Poinsettias are ridiculous. They’re pretty and all, but they’re hard to take care of (especially since they’re a plant from Mexico that hate the cold) and when the stems break the emit a sticky glue-like sap. It’s gross haha. My mom worked at a greenery that placed and maintained poinsettias for the holiday season, and I would help for a few days. That’s probably why I’m tired of them lol.

But, like I said, they are pretty! There are so many different varieties of them too. Did you know that a lot of people that are allergic to latex are also allergic to poinsettias? The plant contains a compound that is very similar to rubber latex. So these crochet poinsettia patterns are an allergy-free way to enjoy them for the holidays!

This mason jar cover is painted to give it a little extra detail. I bet the light pattern it throws off is really pretty!

These poinsettias begin with a plastic ring, like from a milk jug, and end with a cute little tealight and simmering gold beads. These little things would be great decor for a festive table!

It's a Wrap! by Drops Design

I never thought to use crochet flowers in place of bows to decorate presents until I saw this post. Now it's got my brain thinking about using a chain of yarn as ribbon, and different types of flowers for bows...

If you made this doily with cotton yarn instead of thread you would have a good sized, sturdy pot trivet that would look beautiful on your table!
