Best tips for faux flowers
- Look for faux flowers that are made from silk. These flowers tend to look more natural and closer to a real flower.
- There should be wire in the stems. This makes the faux flower and branches adjustable to bend into the right position. Just as a normal flower would do.
- To make your faux flowers look more realistic, display your faux flowers when they would normally be in season. For example peonies and tulips would be used in the spring.
- For displaying faux flowers in clear vases add water to make them seem real. Or use ceramic vases so the stems aren’t on show.
