I went to a Christmas party on Friday night. And, I wanted something festive to wear. I wore a green sweater (because of course my clothing must color-coordinate with the Christmas theme!) and decided to make myself a festive poinsettia headpiece. (Note: I'm obviously not wearing a green sweater in the below picture. You think I had time to make a headband AND photograph it right before the party?)
I pretty much made it up as I went, comparing it occasionally to the poinsettia plant my sweet friend gave me for my birthday. I wanted the middle to be authentic (because that's how I roll) and have the tiny yellow flowers that real poinsettias have amongst their red and green leaves. But, I didn't have any yellow beads. So, dear readers, you know what I used? I used a pair of pliers to cut the heads off of some of my sewing pins and then I hot glued them to the flower. Yep. I'm a little nuts. But, hey, they look cute, right? Mission accomplished.
