Green florist foil can change the look of a poinsettia plant!
Wrapping a pot with Florist’s foil is really very quick. This is a special decorative foil fused with plastic. This makes the foil waterproof and adds strength.
It can be completed in basically six steps. First step, measure the amount of foil needed. I do this is placing the pot in the center of the foil, holding the foil up to cover the pot and bottom of the plant. I usually place the end of the foil halfway between the top of the pot and the top of the plant. Foil on larger pots just need to cover the pot and bottom of the plant. Second step, cut and turn the edges of the foil. This gives control and clean edges to the foil.
I wrap a pot by pleating the foil. To me, this gives a finished look to the plant. I begin at the front of the pot. I also pull the pot slightly toward the front of the foil, so the back pleats are taller than the front pleats. Take the foil to the center of the pot and fold over the edge of the pot. Place the pointed edge of the foil to the right side of the pot. Make a pleat by folding the foil. Complete the pleats all the way around pot.
Finally, finish wrapping the plant by adding a stream of ribbon around the pot and tie a knot in the ribbon at the top of the pot. Trim the streamers close to the knot. Add a premade bow to a 6” wood pick. Wrap with floral wrap tape. Place the wood pick in the soil of the plant, between the knot and the rim of the pot. Fluff the bow and the pleats.
