DIY Floral Gift Wrap {Crocheted Gift Wrap Idea}

flower gift wrap

When you go to a party, isn’t it nice to have a beautifully wrapped package to take with you? I know it’s so easy to grab a gift bag at Target, but sometimes you just need to make a little more of a statement. I recently had a baby shower to attend, and I didn’t quite know how to wrap my present. I didn’t have a lot of time, but I wanted it to look beautiful. After whipping up these dainty daisy bookmarks recently, I had a great idea.While it did take me a little longer than sticking it in a bag and stuffing it with tissue paper, this beautiful gift wrapping idea is quick and fun. If you want to wrap your next spring gift the same way, here’s how you can do it.

Materials: 

  • wrapped present
  • small amounts of Red Heart Super Saver Yarn, or any worsted weight yarn
  • H crochet hook
  • simple daisy crochet pattern
  • buttons & thread for embellishing
  • hot glue gun
  • optional: lined alligator clips

Beautiful Gift Wrapping Idea

Directions: 

First, make three daisies from this pattern using an H crochet hook. Embellish them with buttons of your choice; I decided to put mine on lined alligator clips so that they could be used for hair clips later on.

Now, you’re going to need to take a piece of yarn and wrap it around your package. This will allow you to see how long your chain needs to be. Make sure the yarn is long enough to tie in a bow. Cut the yarn and set aside for later.

We’re going to make the leaf chain now.

Leaf Chain Pattern:

ch 9.

Round 1: sc in the second st, hdc in the next, dc in the next 4 stitches, hdc in the next, sc in the next. ch 2.

Round 2: You aren’t going to turn the work like you normally would; instead, you’re going to be working into the other side of the leaf. sc in the first stitch, hdc in the next, dc in the next 4 stitches, hdc in the next, sc in the next, sl st in the first sc. Don’t cut your yarn.

Now, you’re going to chain until your chain is as long as the piece of yarn you set aside. After you’ve reached that length, you’re going to make another leaf so you will have one on each side of your chain. You will work this second leaf the exact same way as you did the first. Just note that when you work the second leaf, your ch 2 will be brought over the existing chain and then you will work the second side of the leaf.

Now, wrap the yarn around your present. Tie the leaf chain in a bow. After that’s done, clip your flowers to the loops of your bow and chain that is going around your present. You now have a beautiful and fun present to give to a friend.
