With tapestry needle and yarn, sew large petals together in a star formation. Do the same with the small petals. Center small petal bunch on top of large one; tack in place to create poinsettia.
Weave in ends.
Hand-sew sequin to the center of poinsettia.
Cut a small circle of felt. Hand-sew to the back of the poinsettia.
Sew to a headband, add a pearl pin and use as a brooch, attach to a wrapped gift, or hot glue several to a wreath.
