The large size of this sign, compared to the simplicity of it’s golden coloring, make it a stand out accent for holiday decorating. This one was designed for indoor use, but you could easily adapt it for outdoor use by spraying with DecoArt® Americana® Spray Sealant, and creating a fabric flower, or using a pre-made faux flower instead of the paper version.

Create paper poinsettia embellishment by cutting 5 large petals from one red patterned paper, 5 medium from a complementary paper, and 3 small from the original paper. (Print and trace a pattern if desired, but I just randomly cut mine.) Cut 3 large petals from green partnered paper to serve as leaves. Mountain fold each in half lengthwise. Unfold, and then carefully valley fold, beginning at each petal point, twice on each side.
Place a small scrap of paper for center, then begin using Zip Dry Adhesive to glue base petals in a circle. Repeat with middle petals, and top layer. Glue green petals beneath large red petals for leaves.
Paint assorted sized buttons with gold Dazzling Metallics® paint. Let dry, then mount to center of flower.
