How do you make a DIY Seed Bouquet Gift?
Step 1: Gather your supplies.
You will need:
- Small Flower Pot (these are SO cute!)
- Seed Packets ( I used six packets, but you could easily use 8 or 10 if you wanted as well)
- Floral Foam
- Bamboo Skewers
- Green Paper Straws
- Green Shredded Paper
- Hot Glue Gun
- Ribbon for a bow
Step 2: Cut and place your floral foam.
The first thing you will need to do is to cut the floral foam to fit in your flower pot. Make it square and shorter than your pot and really wedge it in there firmly – this will keep you from having to glue it in (I use this method with my Yarn Bouquet as well).
Step 3: Add the bamboo skewers.
Next, you will need to add in the bamboo skewers. Leave the back ones taller than the front ones so it displays better.
Pro Tip: Play around with different angles and spaces to find the perfect fit!
Step 4: Add in the shredded paper.
Step 5: Attach the seed packets to the straws.
I used a mix of perennial and annual seeds to create some variety, but you could pick whatever you wanted! You can find seed packets for as cheap as $0.20 each at places like Dollar General!
I used green paper straws to mimic flower stems, but you could use whatever colors you liked.
Step 6: Slide the straws onto the skewers to finish your DIY Seed Bouquet.
That’s it! That’s all it takes to make a DIY Seed Bouquet gift! Who will you give yours to?
