A unique way to gift wrap, the DIY Fresh Glower Gift Box is perfect for someone who loves flowers. And who doesn’t?!?
It’s like they always say, a gift is only as good as the box it comes in.
Okay, maybe that’s not completely true.
But a pretty box will always help!
These DIY Fresh Flower Gift boxes knock out three birds with one stone: flowers, handmade gift, and chocolates.
It’s definitely a creative gift wrapping idea from your usual generic gift wrap.
Side note: This is the first project we shot in the new studio.
It took a few minutes to get used to from having graduated from our living room coffee table.
But we’re loving it!

How to Make a DIY Fresh Flower Gift Box
This project is really as simple as gluing your favorite flowers to the top of a gift box.
1 — All you have to do is trim the stems down to just below the bulb and glue in place.
2 — For those of you that have a hard time seeing fresh flowers go without water, you can make them last by using floral tubes to create a mini bouquet.
This way you can also just glue the vase to the box instead of gluing the flowers straight on the box.
3 — To create the ombre look, we used spray paint in Ballet Slipper to quickly spray a few coats at the bottom, lifting up to the top of the box.
Then, allow the paint it dry.
