How to Make a Gerbera Daisy Bouquet


Gerbera daisies, so named for the botanist (Gerber) who discovered the flower, provide beauty to the environments in which they are planted. Their stems are sturdy, long and vibrant-green making them excellent choices for floral bouquets. Making a bouquet with gerbera daisies proves to be a simplistic process that can be completed in under an hour.

Step 1

Layer the three sheets of tissue paper on top of one another. Choose colors to correspond with the colors of flowers you have chosen.

Step 2

Rotate the tissue paper approximately 45 degrees to the right, while it is laying flat in front of you.

Step 3

Place a bundle of gerbera daisies in the center of the tissue paper. Make sure that the blooms of the daisies hang over the top of the paper by about 3 inches.

Step 4

Wrap the tissue paper around the bundle of daisies by rolling it from one side to the other. The bottom part of the tissue paper will end in a cone-like point with the bottoms of the flower stems protruding from it.

Step 5

Wrap the silk ribbon around the middle of the bouquet to hold it in place. Tie the ribbon into a bow.

Step 6

Choose three or four accent flowers to place strategically throughout the bouquet. Accent flowers add variation and texture to a bouquet. Attractive accent flowers that correspond with gerbera daisies include larkspur, baby's breath and vibrantly colored tulips.
