Simple Gift Wrap with Beautiful Felt Flowers

Since making our own beautiful felt flowers, we’ve been finding creative ways to display them. So far, we’ve added them to a girl’s headband, made this upcycled photo frame display as well as this home sweet home welcome sign. I just can’t get enough of these delicate florals!

With the holidays just around the corner, we thought it would be the perfect time to use our pretty felt flowers as part of the gift wrap. Using simple and inexpensive kraft paper and burlap for the packaging, the colorful felt flowers really pop on top!

How to Adorn Gifts with Felt Flowers

Assembling the Felt Flowers

To make your own felt flowers, refer to the patterns and template guides in our Etsy shop. We used felt sheets from Benzie Designs, they have so many gorgeous colors to choose from!

Wrapping the Gifts

Wrap gift boxes in brown kraft paper same as you would with any gift wrap. Cut a piece of burlap and wrap it around the package. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just need enough to wrap around the box.

Wrap and tie a long piece of twine around the burlap to hold in place.

Using a hot glue gun with clear glue sticks, appply a small dab of glue to the back side of the felt flower. Press the flower onto the wrapped gift and hold in place until the glue sets.

Do the same for other gifts, adding additionally felt flowers for larger sized packages.

Additionally, you can also attach a broach pin to the back side of each felt flower for the receiver to use as an accessory afterwards!
