DIY – Artificial and dry flower arrangement


In modern interiors, very often are used artificial stylized flowers and plants as well as silk and dry flowers.

The new manufacturing technologies make artificial flowers look very realistic. The most visually striking aspects of an artificial flower arrangement are colors and shapes. There is, however, the appeal of a well-styled bouquet. The more technical details, like the number and height of stems, the number of leaves, the amount of space between stems, and the way the stems fall, or bend play key roles in creating the perfect aesthetic.

  1. Before you think about the more visual elements, make a checklist for sizing. Think about how tall and wide you want the arrangement to look (consider the height of the vase), how wide the overall bouquet should span, and how sparse or dense of a feel you’re going for; those factors are dictated by interior in which the arrangement is going to be.
  2. Selecting flowers, start by picking your primary flowers (white silk bromeliads). Then select supporting flowers complimenting the primary flowers (white Calla lilies). Now think about filler. Fillers are not necessarily flowers; they could include singular green leaves, twigs, and branches. To look even more realistic, add natural elements to an artificial flower arrangement.
  3. If you’re still struggling with making a vase appear fuller than it is even after trying the tricks above, it might be that your flowers are too stiff or straight. Try bending the stems slightly to fill in the gaps between the blossoms. (Remember that real plants don’t stand up perfectly straight, so whether you’re styling artificial greenery or flowers, ‘breaking in’ the stem with a little bending is crucial!).
  4. Now about a container. Any kind of container is good for the artificial floral arrangement aesthetic! Clear vases are perhaps the most fun since you can add stylish bottom fillers as marbles or cork stops. To camouflage the foam in our glass vase, we use dry moss and black turtle beans.


Every element you secure into the foam with a hot glue gun.


To create a strong focus of interest in the arrangement, cut off the stems of bromeliad flowers and insert them into foam on different heights following the FOCAL POINT order.

By the way, pineapples belong to the bromeliad family as well.


Next, add calla lilies, balancing the length and number of flowers on each side of the group of bromeliad flowers.

Covering the stems of calla lilies with lily grass will decrease the contrast between the solid bromeliad flowers and delicate calla lilies.


Turn the arrangement around and keep working on the other side.

Do not forget to place mushrooms following the FOCAL POINT order.


You can not disagree that those few eucalyptus seed pots add more character to the arrangement. Siply glue the pots with a hot glue gun to the mushrooms.
