Flowers are such a great gift for many occasions. Who doesn’t love getting flowers? Here is an easy way to dress up or personalize a simple store bought flower bouquet into your own DIY flower bundle.

To start grab whatever bunches of flowers you love. I always get mine at either Trader Joe’s or Costco. They are always the nicest for a good price. But there are plenty of great options out there. Other supplies you will need- craft paper (plain or print), scissors, tape, twine (raffia or ribbon too whatever you prefer) and if you plan on having the kids decorate it markers or crayons.

If it’s just a fun craft for the kids one trick I use is just to reuse a paper grocery bag. Cut along one side and cut off the bottom section, handles and flatten it out. Have the kids color and draw on the plain side and then flip over to wrap the flowers.

Time to assemble

Line the inside with tissue paper. Trim up the flowers as needed and then arrange the flowers on top. I went with just tulips for one but I often buy a couple mixed bouquets and mix them and rearrange to my liking.

Here I rearranged a mixed bouquet and just used some simple wrapping paper instead of craft paper.
