Over the years, I’ve spent several holidays in Hawaii. One of our favorite times to visit Hawaii is during Christmas because of the Hawaiian Christmas carols, awesome Hawaii Christmas events, and fun Hawaiian Christmas decorations.

Plus, it’s hard to beat Santa wearing an Aloha shirt!

This year, we won’t be in the islands, but we’re going to bring a piece of Hawaii back home with Hawaiian Christmas decorations.

I’m a huge fan of poinsettia flowers. I love the deep red color and it’s the perfect tropical flower that is also Christmas-y.

This DIY poinsettia wreath tutorial doesn’t require many supplies and it’s lightweight enough to hang just about anywhere.

Determine the size of the wreath and cut out a round wreath base from a cardstock paper. 

Step 2:Hawaiian Christmas Decorations: How to Make a Poinsettia Wreath, a step by step tutorial featured by top Hawaii blog, Hawaii Travel with Kids.

I’m using brown burlap fabric to wrap and cover the cardstock base. You can use a burlap lace or cut burlap fabric into a strip. Apply glue at the starting of the burlap wrapping and then start to wrap the base with the burlap. 

Step 3:Hawaiian Christmas Decorations: How to Make a Poinsettia Wreath, a step by step tutorial featured by top Hawaii blog, Hawaii Travel with Kids.

Cover the whole cardstock base with burlap. Keep the open end of the burlap lace on the back side of the wreath and apply glue on the open end of the burlap to secure the wrapping. 

Step 4:Hawaiian Christmas Decorations: How to Make a Poinsettia Wreath, a step by step tutorial featured by top Hawaii blog, Hawaii Travel with Kids.

Trace the flower template patterns on the selected cardstock papers and cut them out nicely. 

For each flower you’ll need 3 patterns for the center (2 cross and 1 round shape), 6 large petals for the outer layer, 3 large petals for the middle layer and 3 small petals for the inner layer. 

Step 5: Hawaiian Christmas Decorations: How to Make a Poinsettia Wreath, a step by step tutorial featured by top Hawaii blog, Hawaii Travel with Kids.

Grab the 3 large petals and the 3 small petals and cut 1cm slit from their tip.

Overlap both sides of the slit and stick them using craft glue.

Create crease along the middle of the other 6 large petals. Cut out a round base from cardstock paper for the flower.
