How to make a ‘Christmas Cloud’ decoration

Poinsettia Christmas Cloud

A lovely gift for little ones to give to grannies and grandads


  • 1 poinsettia (10 cm diameter pot) in pink or any colour of your choice
  • 1 plant pot (12 cm diameter)
  • 1 bag of single or multi-coloured cotton-wool balls
  • Various wooden star decorations
  • Silver wire
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors


  1. The cotton wool pot can be made very quickly. Just add dots of glue around the outside of the plant pot using the glue gun and one-by-one stick cotton-wool balls onto the glue spots leaving no space in between.
  2. Tie the wooden stars together using silver wire. Do this by winding the wire around each star and tying together behind each.
  3. The chain of wooden stars can then be decoratively arranged on the poinsettia and wrapped around the pot.
