Budget Botanical Gift Wrap Idea

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is gift wrapping. I love finding unique ways to use materials and really going all out with my choices in gift wrap, bows, ribbon, etc. The past few years, I haven't been very inspired, but this year inspiration struck. With a quick trip to the dollar store, I had everything I needed for these botanical foliage gift wrap ideas.

This post is a collaboration with 6 other bloggers who are using items from the dollar store to create holiday gifts and decor. Visit their projects at the end of this post.

For my Dollar Store Supply focused project, I'm going to show you how I used gift wrap, floral picks, ribbon and cotton twine from my local Dollar Store to create botanical inspired wrapped gifts. These look really pretty tucked under the tree with the lights glowing on them. And everyone who received one of these embellished gifts loved the presentation!

Budget Botanical Gift Wrap Idea


  • Gold poinsettia floral pick
  • Fern cluster floral pick
  • Berries cluster floral pick
  • Tropical foliage floral pick
  • White gift wrap
  • Lace ribbon
  • Gift boxes
  • Hot glue
  • Tape


I created a video tutorial to show how I created three different designs. Hopefully, you'll feel inspired to play around with ideas and come up with more, too.


I made them so it's easy for me to be pretty jazzed about them. But, I really like how they turned out! The poinsettia is the only part that is holiday themed so it can be adapted for a variety of different gift giving situations, too.

I know finding things in one dollar store at another can be difficult sometimes. The floral section seems to be pretty consistent, but if you are having trouble finding these exact items I have a few alternative material ideas-
  • Jute twine from hardware section
  • Burlap from floral section
  • White ribbon from gift wrap and floral section
  • Glitter ribbon from the holiday section
  • Green paper covered floral wire
  • Craft paper from the mailing section
  • Other colors in the plain gift wrap
  • White gift boxes from the holiday section
