Silk flowers are good to have around the house because they are hypoallergenic, that is they do not contain pollen, are disease-free, and are nontoxic. Another thing that makes them a good buy is that they do not wither away. Presented below are a few arrangements.
Free Standing Arrangement
Free Standing Arrangement
  • Fill a shallow container with foam extending about one inch over the top.
  • Use hot glue, floral clay, or floral tape to secure the foam.
  • Next, define the shape of the design with leaves and line flowers.
  • Place the leaves and focal flowers and turn the vase as you go round the sides to ensure that the sides are all even.
  • To complete the design, use filler flowers.
Horizontal Arrangement
Horizontal Arrangement
You will need to use a relatively shallow container for this.
  • Take some foam and anchor it with a lot of glue or anchor pins.
  • Position sprays of line flowers to make a design.
  • Insert the focal flowers in the middle so that they gently droop over the lid of the container on both the sides.
  • Now reach towards the line material and extend on either side of the middle. Remember to leave room for the filler flowers.
  • Once that is done, fill in and around the focal area with filler flowers and foliage.
Vertical Arrangement
Vertical Arrangement
  • Use hot glue to wedge or secure foam in a vase.
  • Then cut the stems of the tallest flowers or leaves to reach three or four times the height of the vase.
  • Now place the focal flowers vertically against the diameter of the vase.
  • With that done, fill in the empty areas with filler flowers.
Triangular Arrangement
Triangular Arrangement
  • First secure foam and then determine the vertical height and horizontal width with the smallest line flowers or leaves.
  • Take care to make the height higher than the width.
  • Place the largest focal flowers in the heart of the arrangement and slightly lower in order to give balance and weight.
  • Fill in the gaps with filler flowers and foliage taking care that the triangular shape is retained.
Crescent Arrangement
Crescent Arrangement
  • First secure foam in a container.
  • Next, determine the length of the crescent and insert curved line flowers or leaves to follow the crescent form.
  • Now angle the shape to balance in the container.
  • Insert the focal flowers a little low in the bowl in order to achieve stability, balance, and depth.
  • Use smaller flowers and foliage to fill the space around the focal flowers. Flowers that taper over will enhance the look.
Oval Arrangement
Oval Arrangement
  • First of all, secure foam and then determine the height with line flowers.
  • Once that is done, frame in the outer edges of the oval shape with light colored foliage and flowers.
  • In the focal area, place the brightest, strongest, and largest flowers.
  • Use filler flowers to fill in around the larger leaves and flowers.
Flowers, whichever and in whatever quantity, always add a good element to your rooms. However, if you arrange them well, the enhancement is done manifold. And with silk flowers, it only gets better!
