by Northern Life

An urban DIY décor idea.


  • polystyrene dome
  • Copper wire netting
  • 3-4 red speckled or white poinsettias (or in your favourite colour, 10 cm diameter pot)
  • Candle (to be melted down)
  • A pair of pliers
  • Paint brush
  • Compost


  1. First using the paint brush, apply the melted wax of the candle on the polystyrene dome.
  2. Next, cut the copper wire netting into shape around the dome using the pair of pliers. The wire can be used amply.
  3. Bend the copper wire into shape until it fits the shape of the dome. Give the copper wire netting a wintery look by creatively brushing some wax across it.
  4. Fill the newly wired dome with some compost and place the poinsettias in it.
