Embroidered Poinsettia - Poinsettia Wall Art
This poinsettia embroidery pattern is a great way to create your own poinsettia wall art. The poinsettia kit comes with a simple instruction booklet which teaches you how to stitch on paper, the simple stitches used for the embroidered basket and where to start in making this modern embroidery. It's a bit like doing dot-to-dot but with wool rather than a pencil, with the precise placement of the dots on the printed paper making it easy to achieve a beautiful finish. It is suitable for a complete novice as everything is fully explained for a beginner embroiderer.
The embroidered poinsettia is A3 in size and is printed on museum quality paper which has a watercolour like texture. The pressed poinsetta flowers and leaves are high definition, digitally printed images of the pressed flowers, that look very real. The paper is soft and durable making stitching the paper extremely therapeutic. As it’s worked all in one colour it also allows for a lovely rhythm of stitching without lots of stopping and starting.
Each kit is wrapped in tissue paper and presented in a hard backed envelope, branded with the product image, making it ready for gifting.

Framing Your Embroidery
For slightly three dimensional work like this embroidered poinsettia, I love to frame with a double mount to give a sophisticated finish. Please note the kit does not include the mount!
