|I made 3 sets of ties|
To finish the center back seam, I used a simple rolled edge hem....and made ties from the same fabric to tie it together at the back of the tree.
The poinsettias are made from red felt....frankly, this was just eyeballing and cutting three different size petals and hot gluing them to a felt circle. For the two larger petals I used a total of 10; first I glued down 5 petals, then went back around adding the other 5 in the voids created in the first row of petals. The smallest petals I only used a total of 5. To create the center, I placed a dollop of fabric glue and sprinkled gold glitter on top.
I made a total of 5 poinsettas; 2 large, 2 medium and 1 small. Once I had placed them on the skirt (about 8 different ways before I made my decision), I hand sewed them into place.
