A Quilled Poinsettia Ornament

I decided on a whim to buy a styrofoam form while checking out our new Hobby Lobby store that just opened. I had wanted to make a quilled ornament ball for a while, but didn’t want to make just a regular ball. Here was the perfect solution! 

I started out by making my poinsettia first and pinning it onto the foam shape. Then I started with the gold edging around the side.


Once I had the edging and poinsettia in place, I could fill in with the white beehive technique.


Once I finished the first side, then I started the opposite side.


It took somewhere between 5-6 hrs to complete, but I must say well worth the time and experimentation to make!

Hope you enjoy!
