Happy Early Holidays!!!! Now say are ya kidding me??? Nope not at all!!! I’m sharing my NEWEST holiday decor pattern for Christmas Poinsettia Coaster. Above all you all know Christmas is right around the corner and if you knew how long I have been working on this pattern you probably would just say WHYYYYYYY!!! Well let me tell you it was kind of hard…now I know why there are not that many patterns out on the web for poinsettias. Leave it to me…I’m kind of a perfectionist and I’m still not sure if that is a good thing or a curse. I love things to look realistic. Therefore I am pretty pleased with have this pattern has turned out. I hope you like these Christmas Poinsettia Coasters.
These coasters would be a perfect addition to any homes Christmas decor and can be created in any color you would like. For Instance I can see a set made out of blues, creams/golds or even the goldish/orangish color you see in stores these days on real poinsettias. The options are endless for the creative soul in all of us!
