Live poinsettia plants can be found everywhere this time of year. While it is perfect as nature intended... it really doesn't hurt to throw some glitter on it!
Step one: Procure the plant!
Step Two: Procure the glue! Design Master Glue for Glitter is what we recommend. This glue does not kill the plant if used correctly. We sell it and you can often find it at good craft supply stores.
Step Three: Spray a small section of one of the flowers. We held the can away about 8 inches or so.
Step Four: Right after spraying you can drop glitter onto the glue. We used fine flakes and the result was a bit too subtle. We then used our Regular Chunky Flakes and it looked great. We did a combination of Very Merry Red and Disco Iridescent (both craft glitters). The Disco looked like a light colorful snow. The Very Merry Red was brilliant when the light hit it.
Result! The glitter should not be sealed to keep it from flaking off. If you do, the plant will not be able to breathe and will die quickly. The glue does a pretty good job of holding onto the glitter. If you did not use too much glue this plant should live all the way through the holiday season. Enjoy!
