We’ve partnered again with our favorite silk flower company, AFloral, to create this fun gift wrap DIY! With the holidays not far away, we thought it would be fun to show you some pretty wrapping ideas for your gifts (and honestly, I think this wrapping would work for anytime of the year, right?!). Create a fun silk flower arrangement topper for your bestie’s present, or a woodland inspired piece for your mister. Lots of possibilities with AFloral and so easy to create! And those pretty gift tags above? Those are thanks to Goodheart Design and Alex was sweet enough to share a template with those so you can download for your gifting too!!

For the first glam-inspired wrapping we did, we paired the white anemone, feathers + gold berries with white kraft paper and twine. Simply wrap your box up with the white paper, and begin with the twine by wrapping around the box for some texture…

Next, you can attach your supplies by using twine to secure down onto the wrapped twine. This will reinforce it onto the packaging. If you need extra support for the white anemone, use a glue gun to secure down! And last, use a pretty tag like our calligraphy adornment from Goodheart Design.

For a classic holiday gift wrap look – we paired some greens, reds and golds together with a brown kraft paper…

Start by layering your yarn around the box to create a web design, and adjust as necessary. Then you can attach your flowers + accents using the yarn as support.

Lastly, we picked a pretty pink + gold combo. We found some pretty gold wrap to tie around our box, and adorned with a big red peony + pink ranunculus. Love the addition of the dip-dyed tag!
