Whether you have dried flowers grouped together in a wreath or arrangement, or single dried flowers for use in craft projects, you need to make sure they last as long as possible. However, a few simple steps can extend their life.
1.Avoid direct sunlight
Place dried flowers indoors where they will be protected from the elements. Keep them out of direct sunlight and areas of bright light as this will fade the colors and make the flowers brittle.
2. Avoid humidity
Dried flowers can degrade when exposed to humidity, so keep your dried blooms somewhere dry, with low humidity to ensure a long shelf life.
3. Fluff it up gently
Your dried bouquet will be delivered well enclosed to protect the flowers from any damage. We recommend keeping the bouquet tied, but fluffing the flower stems a bit. Be careful - dried flowers are fragile!
4. No watering
Unlike their fresh flowers, dried blooms or dried bouquets do not like water. It makes their stems weak and mouldy. Keep them warm and dry at all times. Simply put in the vase and let the flower stems shine.
5. Cut the stems as needed
If you're feeling creative or really want to vary in height, cut your flower stems to different lengths.
6. Cleaning dusty dried flowers
If your dried flowers have become dusty, you can gently blow the dust off with a hair dryer on a cold setting.
