How to make these sweet DIY bouquet holders
Free Printable DIY Bouquet Holder Supplies:
- Free PDF Pattern
- Card Stock
Step One: Download the FREE, PDF paper bouquet holder template.
Set your printer settings to no margins, so that your bouquet wrapper doesn’t print with a white wrapper around the edge of the design. If your printer doesn’t have that setting, it should only print with about an eighth of an inch border, which can easily be trimmed with scissors or a paper cutter.
Step Two: Remove the cellophane wrapping from your store-bought bouquet, or gather your freshly picked blossoms, and wrap the bouquet with the DIY bouquet holders, securing with tape.
I found forming the cone BEFORE you wrapped it around the flowers was A LOT easier than forming the cone around the flowers first. So I suggest making the cone, securing the edge with tape, and then placing the blooms inside the cone last.
My favorite bouquet trick
Optional If you aren’t gifting your DIY bouquet holders and flowers right away, wrap the bottom of the bouquet in wet paper towels, and putting the end of the stems with the dampened towels, into a zip lock bag. This will preserve your flowers until you are able to gift them.
