Designing an arrangement using dried flowers is a great way to get started. Select a vase, decorative jug, or alternative vessel of your choice, and choose the colour palette you’d like to work with. Once you’ve bought your dried flowers, experiment with different combinations until you’re happy with your design. Varying the lengths of your stems will provide depth and an aesthetically pleasing shape. Watch how to make an eco-friendly dried flower arrangement.

Wreaths are a great decorative item and beautiful examples can be made using dried flowers. There are many wreath bases to choose from in different shapes, sizes, and materials, so you can choose the one that best suits you. Select flowers based on the season you’re creating your wreath for e.g. autumn, Easter, or Christmas. Dried flower wreaths look fabulous hung on doors and walls, and they make a lovely gift too.

Fashion a dried flower crownDesign a dried flower crown

Dried flower crowns are perfect for weddings, festivals, and other celebrations. Flowers can be chosen to suit your theme, outfit, or the season you’re celebrating in. If you’d like a hair accessory that’s a little more subtle than a flower crown, you can also use dried flowers to decorate hair combs, clips, and alice bands. Alternatively, you can make a tiny bunch and simply add it to your hair using grips.
