Poinsettia Wreath (toilet paper rolls)

I made this Poinsettia wreath out of empty toilet paper rolls. and you can see my tutorial on how I made it at a new blog  I am newly involved in co-hosting with my wonderful DIL Rach. It is Created Crafty at
My grandaughters helped by painting some of the red TP petals.  The oldest is so funny & can't keep her eyes open for the camera, so I tried to get them to squeeze eyes shut, hoping to snap them when they popped open, but my timing didn't work...4 px later I settled for the squeezed eyes..ha ha.
