Put your own spin on the traditional gift of flowers – using craft supplies! Here, we’ll show you three ways to decorate a bouquet using craft supplies so it’s clear you went the extra mile, no matter the occasion. Birthdays, anniversaries, Mother’s Day, dinner parties, graduation, the list goes on. Pro tip: Order the supplies in advance so that all you have to do day-of is pick up a flower bouquet and assemble.

1. Wrap your favorite trim around the bouquet

Dress up your bouquet by wrapping beautiful, unique trim around the stems. Tip: If you’re working with roses, watch out for thorns while you wrap!
 

2. Arrange in a hand-etched vase

Use glass etching cream and our “Beginner’s Guide to Glass Etching” tutorial to customize a vase with a pattern or message. Tip: This approach works especially well for larger arrangements that you’re presenting in a vase.
 

3. Give them in a hand-stamped wrap

Stamp your own flower wrap using a hand-carved stamp and kraft paper. Tip: Use a stamp that’s relevant to the occasion, like a graduation cap for a new grad, or hearts for Valentine’s Day.
 

4. Dress up in polka-dot tissue paper

Adding circle stickers to ordinary tissue paper will give a fun, modern accent to any flower arrangement.
