Easy Guide to Taking Care of Dried Flowers

While we love some traditional fresh-cut flowers, they don’t last forever. A great alternative is to get dried flowers. Made by either naturally drying out flowers or handcrafted with all-natural materials, these blooms can last forever in the right conditions. Everlasting dried bouquets are a great way to add character to any room.

They Don’t Need Water

Unlike fresh flowers, dried flowers need no water, at all! Water just causes mold and makes the stems weak. Just keep your dried flowers cozy and dry. 

Keep Away from the Sun

Dried flowers naturally change over time due to the preservation process. Keeping them out of extreme environments by storing them indoors and away from direct sunlight helps keep the colors intact and helps maintain the preservation.

Don’t Let them Collect Dust

Dried blooms are prone to collect dust, which you can remove by using a good old-fashioned feather duster. It’s an easy way to get rid of the dust on sturdier arrangements. Alternatively, you can use a hairdryer at low speed and with no heat to gently blow the dust off without damaging them. 

Let Them Chill on Their Own

Don’t move your dried arrangements too much! Let them hang out in an uninterrupted spot so that the additional movement doesn’t cause them to disperse fragments faster. Definitely keep them away from little hands and furry paws to avoid getting knocked over, crushed, or caught on furry coats.

Make Sure They Stay Dry

It’s important to have good airflow around the vase because a humid and stagnant room can cause moisture around the arrangements. This will cause them to damp and moldy. Also, make sure to check the vases to see if they have captured moisture.
