DIY: Gift wrapping with orchids

Giving is more fun than receiving. Isn't that right? To make giving extra special, we have come up with a cool DIY idea using beautiful paper and the prettiest orchid flowers. For this DIY project, we have used Vanda, Cambria, Cymbidium Cascade and Oncidium. Have a look to find out how you make such beautiful gifts yourself or check the video for instructions.

Items needed:

  • Different orchids
  • Pruning shears
  • Water tubes for flower stems
  • Wrapping paper
  • Ribbon, twine and / or gold wire
  • Adhesive tape or glue
  • Scissors

 

Step 1: Wrap the gifts in nice wrapping paper and cut a couple of flower stems from the orchid of your choice.
Step 2: Wrap the gifts and wrap a festive ribbon around the gift, secure with a dab of glue.
Step 3: Lay the orchid on the gift and fold the ribbon over it. Secure it on the back with glue.
Step 4: Insert the orchid’s stem into a flower test tube with water to make it last longer.
Step 5: Wrap gold wire around the gift and insert the stem.
Step 6: Repeat this with as many gifts as you like! Use different orchid species for variety.
