How To Wrap Flowers

Jun 04, 2019
1 Choose paper. You can use almost any type of paper to wrap flowers. If you want a simple classic look, choose plain brown craft paper. For a dressier look, choose wrapping paper or decorated wrapping sheets. For a unique look, think about using:[1]
  • Newspaper

  • Pages from old books (if you're wrapping small flowers)

  • Sheets of music

  • Colored tissue paper

  • 1

2 Place the flowers on the paper. Secure the middle of your flower stems with a rubber band. This will make them easier to wrap and keep them from coming loose in your paper. Set the flowers on your paper so that the rubber band lines up with the folded edge of the paper.[2]
  • A small portion of the stems will be wrapped. However, the flowers should cover a lot of the paper while plenty of stems are exposed.

3 Fold the paper in half. Lay your paper on a table so the printed or colored side is face down. Bring the side closest to you up and over so you can fold it about halfway. Fold the paper at an angle so some of the plain side is exposed.[3]
  • If you're not using colored paper, you should still fold the paper over at an angle. This will create decorative folds in the wrapped bouquet.

4 Wrap the paper around the flowers. Fold one side of the paper up and over the flowers so that it reaches the other side. You can then roll the bouquet so that all the paper is wrapped up, or you can fold the other side across the flowers.[4]
  • This method will make a bit of a cone-shape and can be good for wrapping a bouquet with varying sizes of flowers.

5 Secure the paper. Take a few pieces of clear double-sided tape and place them on the folds of paper that overlap. Press the taped pieces together so that the wrapped bouquet doesn't come apart when you move your hands away. If you don't have tape, you could use twine or string. You'll just need to wrap the string or twine tightly so the paper doesn't unwrap.[5]
  • You can finish your bouquet by wrapping a bow at the base of the paper, where it meets the stems.
