Modernize your Christmas tree by making this Mini Poinsettia Hoop Wreath Ornament! It’s easy to customize the colors and looks gorgeous!
Hoop wreaths are so fun. I love the slight asymmetry of them and there are so many options! This year I participated in a handmade ornament exchange, and I knew right away that I had to make a mini poinsettia hoop wreath ornament.
The blogger that received this ornament is Jordan from Jordan’s Easy Entertaining, and she said that she is decorating with peacock colors this year! I love this, because I tend to use mostly metallics, black and white or red in my Christmas decor. It was so fun to play with these bright colors. I think I’m going to need to switch up my holiday colors!

Different sided hoops can easily be found in the macramé section of the craft store, or just get them on Amazon. While you are at the craft store, grab a variety of fun floral picks and some wire to attach them to the hoop. Lastly, grab some Sculpey III clay and glitter to make the little poinsettias. This Sculpey Bead Starter Kit came in really handy for making the poinsettias!
I made larger versions of these poinsettias a few years ago. For detailed instructions, see this post:
Tip: If you are combining two colors of clay, make sure they are the same variety of clay. Sculpey III has a different cooking time than the Sculpey Premo! Always read the instructions carefully.
German glass glitter looks especially sparkly in the middle of the clay poinsettias!
- 4 inch macramé hoop
- gold floral wire
- christmas floral picks
- Sculpey III clay
- Sculpey bead making kit ( or a rolling pin and craft knife)
- aluminum foil
- baking sheet
- Roll out the clay and cut out leaf shapes using a sharp knife or the tool in the Sculpey Bead Making Kit. Press the leafs together in a round shape, using 5 or 6 clay leaves. Lay a bit of wire across the first layer. Add smaller leaves on top of the wire, creating layers. Use scrunched up aluminum foil to prop leaves up. Repeat with smaller leaves until poinsettia is finished. Bake according to clay package directions.
- Once poinsettias are baked and cool, add a dot of glue to the middle and glitter on the glue. Shake of the excess and let dry.
- Lay hoop down and cut floral picks to fit. Use wire to attach picks securely to the hoop. Add poinsettias to the hoop using the wire.
