Below are some creative ideas that many are using silk flowers for. Take a look at the images below to spark some ideas for your next project, wedding or special event.
Decorate your hats with silk flowers.
Take an otherwise boring summer hat and decorate it with a silk flower head or two. You can even go all the way around with the flowers to really give it some pop. Sunflowers and daisies seem to be the most popular during the summer but you can choose whichever flower catches your eye.
Silk flower wreaths for your wall or door.
By taking some twigs and tying them together you can weave the flower stems to them to create a beautiful wall or door piece.
Silk flower headbands for birthdays or weddings.
Similar to making a wreath you can do the same with a headband. Just measure the twigs around the persons head to give it the right fit and intertwine some flower stems to decorate. Once again your imagination is your only limit.
This is great for matching dresses on those special occasions such as weddings, proms, or a quinceanera. Just attach some silk flowers in a small bouquet to some ribbon and tie them on the wrist. It's as simple as that.
Making silk flower arrangements and Art.
Like the pictures above show how you can be as creative as you like with this use. Create your own special arrangement or purchase one for your home or office. Some creations are considered works of art and can be displayed in creative ways. It's as simple as inserting flower stems and greenery into a vase just like you would real flowers or being extremely creative like the silk flower dress for a storefront window display.
Silk rose petals as wedding isle runners.
Many indoor venues no longer allow real rose petals as they will stain carpets. This is where realistic looking silk rose petals come into play. Like the picture above they are most popular in an outdoor setting and can be use as a full runner or in conjunction with a traditional runner. Some even go as far as making intricate designs with different color rose petals for the most dramatic effect.
I'm sure there are many more uses you can think of for silk flowers and we would love to here from you. Feel free to leave a comment with some of your ideas or projects you've done with artificial flowers.
