How to make a bouquet in a box: step by step instructions


A great alternative to any original bouquet is a flower arrangement in a hatbox. In this form, the plants will look presentable, and the whole composition can be presented as a VIP gift. You can create a bouquet in a box with your own hands, following step-by-step steps. This is not difficult, but you need to know what needs to be done and what materials will be used for this.

How to assemble a bouquet in a box: the preparatory stage

Before you make a bouquet in a box, you need to prepare all the necessary materials. Beforehand, you also need to think about what you want to include in the bouquet. The best fit for a hatbox are flowers that can fit snugly against each other, forming a beautiful hemispherical shape. An excellent option are:

  • roses;
  • peonies;
  • tulips;
  • cloves;
  • gerberas;
  • lilies;
  • orchids.

A flower arrangement with a hat box can include not only plants, but also other accessories:

  • decor;
  • sweets;
  • postcard.

Think carefully about what shape you want your box to be. The round hat box looks great. However, you should not stop there, because you can choose a hatbox in a square or rectangular shape, as well as in the shape of a heart or a star.

Depending on what you want to end up with, you need to choose a hat box based on the following:

  1. If the composition will consist only of flowers, then it is better to choose a round-shaped box.
  2. If you want to fill the composition with additional elements, you can choose a box with separators.
  3. A ready-made hat box can be purchased at a floristic salon and additionally decorated with ribbons, rhinestones, beads or other decor. However, you can also make your own by using a shoe box and lining it with suitable paper.
  4. Flowers in a hat box should be well fixed, and the box itself should be made of thick cardboard. After pressing on the cardboard, there should be no creases on it.

How to make a bouquet in a box: putting together a composition

When you have prepared everything, now it remains to understand how to assemble a bouquet in a box so that an attractive flower arrangement comes out of it. If you make a hat box yourself, then you need to glue the cardboard with selected paper and decorate it with decorative elements.

In order to collect flowers in a hat box, you also need:

  • cut stems;
  • remove excess leaves;
  • make sure there are no gaps between the flowers.

Do-it-yourself flowers in a box must be laid very carefully. This is a crucial stage, which determines how attractive and original the composition will be. Folding the same type and monophonic plants is not difficult. If the composition will consist of different colors or shades, then in this case, the process of laying flowers should be approached creatively. They can be laid out in a chaotic manner or laid out in a certain pattern. If you are doing this for the first time, then it is better to try to place them in a chaotic manner.

Bouquets in a box of fresh flowers are beautiful and attractive when they fit tightly together and at the same time their buds do not lose their shape. Therefore, roses and tulips are most suitable for this task. Flowers in a box can be arranged according to the shade that is chosen for the flower arrangement.

How to collect a bouquet in a hat box using a sponge

The answer to the question of how to make a box with fresh flowers is very simple. If a sponge is used in a hat box, then the following steps must be performed:

  • cut the stems, aligning them to the same length;
  • remove damaged and excess leaves;
  • alternately insert the flowers into the sponge at an angle of 20-30 degrees;
  • flowers are stacked tightly to each other so that there are no gaps between them.

It is important to remember that you need to insert flowers into the sponge in such a way that they do not rest against the bottom of the box. If this happens, the stems will be deprived of moisture and the flowers will begin to wither quickly.
