Are you done with Christmas crafting? I am almost done and I am so happy to have designed and made some Christmas theme coasters this year…. I called them Poinsettia Coasters as they have the colors of the poinsettia flowers!!!!

A week ago, I felt like I need something for my table this Christmas but I was totally out of idea of what to make. I blindly walked into a craft shop and bought red, green and white yarns but seriously I didn’t know what I am going to do with them. I felt like I need to buy them because they are “Christmas” colors. I was not worried as I knew that the angels will bring some ideas to me since I have been a good girl all these years!!! Inspiration struck, why not crochet some drink coasters for my table? I altered my original yo-yo puff pattern to make it smaller (about 1″ each) and hence denser. Similar to the wide brim hat I made for my daughter, joined 6 red yo-yo puffs to a center green puff to form a hexagon shape for the red poinsettia. Reverse the colors for a green poinsettia. I have used red and green, what about white color? Guess it or have a quick peek by scrolling down to the end of the post to see what I have done with white yarns :)

Finished size: approx. 3″ dia.

Crochet PoinsettiaFor red poinsettia coasters, prepare 6 red yo-yo puffs and 1 green yo-yo puff by following the above crochet pattern.
Arrange them in a flower shape like the photo on the left.

Use a tapestry needle to sew the chain edge of the 2nd round to the wrong side of the first round slightly away from the center opening.
This is how it looks after the tagging. The opening is smaller and both the top and bottom centers are aligned.
How to join yo yo puffWith wrong side facing each other, join the puffs together by stitching 2 sts of them.
Crochet Poinsettia Drink CoastersRepeat stitching to all the puffs to form a flower shape. Hide and trim yarn ends.

As a variation in colors, turn the poinsettia coaster into snow flakes Christmas tree ornament. So easy! And, if you wonder about the small amigurumi Christmas tree next to it, get the pattern here.

  6. i would just like to know what kind of yarn is DK used for the Poinsettia coasters?

    • I used baby yarn with a matching size crochet hook of 2.5mm. You can use any yarn weight with the recommended crochet hook size on the label, the weight only matters the size of the coaster.
