Faux Flower Tips
There’s many benefits to using faux flowers in your home compared to real flowers; you can eliminate bugs and smells, and faux flowers are much easier to maintain. In the off season for most greenery, like in the winter, faux flowers can add a sense of color to your home and liven it up. With so many choices, faux flowers can be a bit overwhelming if you’re just starting out. It’s easy for faux flowers to look bad, so here’s a few tips that will help you decorate your home with faux flowers!
Diversify! Don’t use the same faux flowers year after year; it’ll get boring to both you and any long-term friends you have. Faux flowers can be cheap, and you can reuse them in different places in your house. However, the biggest mistake a lot of people make is keeping them in the same room for way too long. Make sure to get some new ones!
Don’t make your faux flowers match the room too well. Flowers are meant to accent rooms, but they typically do this by providing soft, natural colors, not by matching the room exactly. Try to get faux flowers that accent your main colors or by using a different shade of your main color. Too much matching can look tacky, so be sure to mix it up.
Real flowers don’t ever fall perfectly, so don’t arrange your faux flowers perfectly. Let the leaves fall and don’t worry about symmetry. Nature is beautiful because of its imperfections, so your faux flowers should be the same.
If you haven’t had any experiences using real flowers, make sure to do research on what flower arrangements typically look like. In order for you to make a realistic looking arrangement, you have to know what a real one looks like!
This also applies to the individual flowers as well. There are different standards for faux flowers, so make sure ones that you get don’t look like faux flowers.
Don’t be afraid to cut your faux flowers. They may come in a perfect looking bundle that fits together perfectly, but remember that flowers never look perfect. You can cut the leaves as well to make the best looking faux flower arrangement that you can!
