How To Decorate With Real and Artificial Flowers

Step 1

Start With an Artificial Flower Arrangement


When choosing faux flowers, it’s important to invest in quality so they can last for years. Consider arrangements that feature neutral shades so you can easily mix and match them with other colors.

Step 2


Select Fresh Flowers As Accent


For a seamless look, choose real blooms that complement your floral arrangement. Pick seasonal flowers and showcase their vivid colors or go for a minimalist palette, then emphasize symmetry with different flower bud shapes.

Step 3


Clean the Fresh Flower Stems


With a sharp knife or pruning shears, cut stems at varying heights to create depth in your design. Remove leaves along the stems to make them easier to insert into the arrangement.

Step 4


Add the Real Flowers to Your Artificial Flower Arrangement


Insert the stems at an angle to create structure. Turn the vessel as you go to check if you’ve achieved your desired silhouette.

Step 5


Remove Wilting Flower


Many fresh flowers can last up to 7 to 12 days, depending on how they’re used and where they’re placed. Prune out wilting parts or stems to preserve the beauty of your floral arrangement.

7 Tips For Making Faux flowers Look Real

If you can, study real flowers.

Or at least find real flower images of the faux flowers you are thinking of buying online and give them a good look!

Since I was looking to buy poppies I wanted to study how the real ones look!

5 ways to decorate with artificial flowers

Do you tend to kill houseplants? Have a mischievous pet that gets into flower pots? Love fresh blooms but your nose doesn’t? Artificial flowers are the answer. Today’s artificial flowers look remarkably realistic — and they require no maintenance except for a bit of dusting!
But you’re not limited to simply placing artificial flowers in vases. Because they don’t require water, the sky’s the limit for what you can do with them.

Check out these five things you can do with artificial flowers the next time you’re eager to have some low-maintenance, allergen-free blooms around the house.



Decorate with artificial flowers by creating a DIY diffuser with a glass bottle, scented oils and artificial flowers



Toss out that old potpourri and craft a unique, gorgeous floral display that naturally makes your home smell lovely. You can make your own oil diffuser with a beautiful glass bottle (e.g., an old perfume container or decorative bottle), with silk flowers to help diffuse the scent. Follow these steps:

Add 20-25 drops of your favorite essential oils to 1/4 cup of low-scent oil (such as baby oil or almond oil).

Pour the mixture into the bottom of your chosen vessel.

Use floral wire to attach silk flowers and leaves to four to six diffuser rods.

Add the diffuser rods to your vase so the bottoms are submerged in your oil mixture.

Another option is to place your oil bottle inside a larger glass container. Fill the empty space around the inner container with a colorful mixture of small artificial flowers. We recommend a mix of complementary colors, with a few faux leaves for contrast.

Wondering which essential oils to choose? Lavender, orange, ylang ylang, and cinnamon oils are all highly potent options for this project. Your DIY diffuser will look beautiful and release a subtle fragrance that’s not overpowering or toxic.



Turn a Boring Wall Into a Flower Wall with artificial flowers



If you have a blank wall that needs some freshening up, why not add some floral delights? This idea is perfect for wall portions that are too small to hang pictures or shelves on or for walls where hanging artwork may be unsafe (e.g., the wall by your bed).

There are several ways to create a flower wall display:

Trim one or two dozen silk flower bouquets to emphasize a few blooms each. Cut their stems to just a few inches long, then secure to the wall with tacks or cup hooks. Arrange them in rows, a circle, a heart shape, or whatever you desire.

Cover the wall with artificial groundcover, such as silk ferns or faux moss. You can tack it into place or attach it to an old bulletin board. Trim the stems of artificial flowers but leave the surrounding leaves. Then use small binder clips or floral wire to attach them among the greenery.

Snip off the blooms and use floral wire to attach them to ribbons. Tack the ribbons onto the wall in rows or a lattice-style framework.

Stencil a design onto your wall (e.g., a heart, star, world map, or even a word), then tack individual blooms into the stencil until you’ve completely filled it up.

Let your imagination run wild! With artificial flowers, no wall in your home will be boring.



Decorate your clothes or accessories with artificial flowers



Add a splash of color to your clothes and accessories with artificial flowers. This is quite easy to do and makes your wardrobe unique. Here are some ideas to try:

Stitch a few blooms onto your waist belt or sash.

Adorn the hem of a skirt or dress with tiny fake flowers. (Note: If you are using silk flowers, be aware that you may not be able to machine-wash the garment with the flowers on it. Dry cleaning is okay.)

Attach several blooms to the collar or breast pockets of your favorite jacket or vest.

Use floral wire or hot glue to attach flowers to a hair clip or headband for instant festival-style hair flair.

Pin a bunch of artificial flowers to your backpack, purse or satchel for a whimsical way to carry your belongings.
