DIY Projects with Artificial Flowers: Create Easy Faux Floral Arrangements for Your Home
Everyone loves flowers. What we don’t love, however, is how quickly they fade and die. We’ll let you in on a little secret: today’s artificial flowers can make fantastic displays that last forever and require zero maintenance. Artificial flowers from Miles Kimball are virtually indistinguishable from their live counterparts. Best of all, they provide vibrant, year-long color that will never go out of style.
With all the artificial flower choices at Miles Kimball, we think that you’ll be itching to try out a new DIY project that will allow you to incorporate them into your home. We’ve put together a few super-easy faux flower DIY ideas so you can enjoy these beautiful blooms.
“Plant” Artificial Flowers in Pots
One of the easiest ways you can use faux flowers is to “plant” them directly in your indoor or outdoor pots. Stick with one planter color scheme, such as terra cotta, or find vintage and antique pots to add character and color. Our artificial flowers can be used indoors or outdoors, so you’ll be able to grace all areas around your home.
Create a Welcoming Wreath
Store-bought artificial flower wreaths can be costly. Why shell out all that money when making your own at home is easy? All that’s needed is a plain grapevine wreath (available in big-box stores and craft stores), some hot glue and a pair of wire cutters. For a spring wreath, use azalea flowers. Welcome summer with some vibrant yellow begonias, and celebrate fall with some colorful faux mums. Holiday décor is easy with artificial flowers when you use this DIY artificial flower hack with our stunning faux poinsettia and pinecone bush. Simply arrange the flowers on the wreath for an easy DIY home décor project that is sure to get all kinds of compliments.
Create a DIY Artificial Flower Centerpiece
A wooden planter box from Miles Kimball will instantly add some beauty to a dining room or kitchen table. Our planter boxes can be personalized, which can make an extra-special gift for someone in your life. If you want to make it even better, add a faux flower arrangement. You can tailor your flowers by season, opting for summery blooms like petunias, springy hydrangeas and fall-inspired pansies. Add some battery-operated fairy lights for a tabletop centerpiece that will pop.
Repurpose Old Baskets
If you love to thrift, then you know that there is no shortage of beautiful, second-hand baskets. Repurpose them — or use some that you currently have — by adding artificial flowers or greenery to them. Place them anywhere that could use a little color, such as above your kitchen cabinets, on top of curio cabinets or on bookshelves. Trailing flowers and greens are especially beautiful when they’re placed in high areas. No one will be able to tell that they aren’t real.
Artificial Flower Hanging Baskets
If you prefer a fully assembled faux flower arrangement that you can instantly enjoy, consider one of our hanging baskets. These all-weather flower arrangements can be used indoors or outdoors. Hang them on shepherd’s hooks or along covered porch areas. These all-in-one, lifelike artificial hanging baskets are also ideal to add to ceiling hooks in your home. Since they require no watering, you won’t have to worry about dragging out that stepstool every week.
There’s no shortage of easy DIY projects for your artificial flowers. Your imagination is the limit, so order one of our faux flower products from Miles Kimball and let the creative juices flow.
