Easy DIY Tulips Gift Wrapping Idea Tutorial

To make this tutorial I used a couple of twigs and a few tulips out of some bunches that I actually bought for another post on how to display tulips in glass vases.

I also used a simple brown kraft paper but any patterned or plain gift wrapping paper would also work too. Just make sure that the paper you use is of good quality so that it is thick enough and not too thin or flimsy.

In addition to the wrapping paper, you will need some clear cellophane. I used plain cellophane but clear with patterns such as dots and swirls etc would also look nice.

Tissue paper can also be added if you want to add more volume or another layer of colour. I did not do this and this is totally optional depending on how you would like your bouquet to look.

Materials Needed For Tulips Gift Bouquet

  • Brown Kraft Paper (or other good quality wrapping paper)
  • Cellophane
  • Sticky Tape
  • Scissors
  • Double Sided Sticky Tape (you can also use just normal tape rolled double)
  • Tulips (or other flowers)
  • Spring Blossom Twigs

Tip: How to Stop The Flower Bouquet Drying Out

I found another good tip on a Dutch website after I wrote this post. To keep the flowers from drying out add a moist piece of tissue at the bottom of the bouquet and wrap it with clingfilm. This is the site where I saw it: acupoflife.nl It is in Dutch but you can see pictures of how to do it along with a couple of other ideas on how to wrap simple flower bouquets.
