Whether your secret santa’ing, looking for filler gifts for the neighbours and fam or just in need of a Christmas lift these DIY Christmas bouquets are just the job. So simple to make and so gorgeous to gift! No matter your budget you’ll be able to find materials to make your own. Top tip: re use wrapping paper from past presents you’ve been gifted, dry bundles for country walks and take trimmings from under your Christmas tree for a thrifty, nifty DIY Christmas.
What You Will Need
As well as wrapping paper (I feel brown is the most effective), string and scissors, you will also need a selection of Christmas trimmings. Perfect for this are:
Fir tree trimmings
Go a little extra with your DIY Christmas bouquet by letting some of your bouquet sit in your favourite infuser oil, before bundling them up.
How To Make It
As with all my projects, it honestly couldn’t be simpler. The hardest part is capturing a solid 15, child free minutes to focus! But to aid you in your Christmas endeavours, I’ve also put a short ‘How To’ video together on our TikTok page.
Here are the 5, quick steps to making your own DIY Christmas Bouquet.
Step 1: Select the cutting you want to use; less is more as each cutting slowly adds up and you don’t want to be trying o man handle what you’ve made into the paper at the end.
Step 2: Bind all the cuttings together at the bottom of the stems with string – I’ve gone with brown to match with the paper. Coloured silk threads also look great.
Step 3: Cut a strip of paper, double the width of your bouquet and the same length the other.
Step 4: Fold in the top right and bottom left corners to turn your paper from a rectangle like shape into more of a wonky diamond.
Step 5: roll the bouquets in the brown paper and tie into place with some more brown string.
And you’re done!
