  • Jean Myles Jean Myles on Mar 15, 2017
    my fav way to use silk flowers is to always have a nice arrangement on my coffee table.

  • Shoshana Shoshana on Mar 16, 2017
    I like framing them. I hang them on a wall in a picture frame for decor that really 'pops'.

    • Afloral Afloral on Mar 16, 2017
      LOVE that idea! We would love to see your latest wall hanging.

    I love putting silk flower wreaths on my doors to go with the seasons. I usually try to make my own but this wreath is beautiful and I would proudly display it on my front door. :)

    try a silk flower on presents.

    We chose white shutters to cover our winows to minimize dust, and it needed a statement piece in our living room.

  • Elf6298166 Elf6298166 on Mar 17, 2017
    I love to use silk flowers on my front and back doors. Also, since I have no windows in my bathroom, I use silk flowers to give it a back to nature environment.

  • Shirley Heikkinen Shirley Heikkinen on Mar 17, 2017
    Thank you, a good friend and I went to our favorite craft store, chose the vase and just started choosing fall flowers and put them in the vase until it was very full. We brought them home, put them where they would remain and went to work on my "Statement piece". The hummingbird of hand blown glass was made especially for this project.

    I love using silk flowers for many different crafts, but I especially love them in an arrangement in our guest bedroom. Since it doesn't get regular use I tend to forget about going in there to water real flowers so fake ones are perfect ;)

    • Afloral Afloral on Mar 17, 2017
      That is a great way to use silk flowers in your home, and I'm sure your guests love the thoughtful arrangements!

  • Frida Ferguson Frida Ferguson on Mar 17, 2017
    I love the versatility of silk flowers. I use them for wreaths, in a vase on my dinning table, small arrangements for the bathrooms using old glass jars. You cannot go wrong with silk flowers, and this beautiful wreath will be the highlight of our front porch. I cannot wait to hang this delicate wreath on our front door . Thank you .

    I arranged ragged silk roses in a vase and placed in on top of our amour . It's beautiful, it makes me smile

  • Brenda Brenda on Mar 17, 2017
    I use silk flowers indoors in various vases. Outdoors, I have many large and small containers where I plant my annuals every year. I mix silk flowers in with some of them and some I just use the silk. No one can tell the difference and I'm assured of beautiful, full, and colourful arrangements from spring to fall.

    • Afloral Afloral on Mar 20, 2017
      That is such a great idea! We offer a variety of UV protected stems for just that reason. It really fills out a flower bed or outdoor planter.

  • Ann Ross Ann Ross on Mar 18, 2017
    I have used them to make floral "crowns", and also as decor on Easter bonnets for my granddaughters. Also around the home, sometimes displayed in vases, or around a door frame for special occasions. Have also made pretty corsages with them.

  • Lynn Przytulski Lynn Przytulski on Mar 18, 2017
    I use silk flowers in every room of my home. From the front door to the bathroom to our bedroom! Silk flowers make it easier to transition my home from one season to the next! They are a staple in my craft room

  • Patty Patty on Mar 18, 2017
    I would use them in a basket or a wreath. I need one for my door,as I'm not very crafty.

  • Vimarhonor Vimarhonor on Mar 19, 2017
    Door wreaths to brighten dark colored door shaded under entry enclosure.

  • Di Di on Mar 19, 2017
    Long six foot floral strands really dress up the black wrought iron headboard. I also put a few silk flowers in my many potted plants (air filtering) to break up the monotony of green. I have a large 3ft urn in the foyer (bi level stairs) & it really lends an air of elegance w/large white magnolias w/ long stems. Wreaths on front door, bathrooms. Anywhere you need a pop of color in a room!

  • Joyce Solano Gustafson Joyce Solano Gustafson on Mar 19, 2017
    I use silk flowers for everything to add color and personality to dark rooms. I dress up my desk at work with bright colorful silk flowers, I use them in my room and throughout my house. I create beautiful flower crowns for my photography business and make wreaths for our visits to the cemetery. I find unusual vases at the thrift store and create beautiful centerpieces. I love silk flowers and will continue to collect and create. They make me smile!

  • Kathy Ruth Kathy Ruth on Mar 19, 2017
    My favorite use for silk flowers is to make seasonal wreaths for my 3 outside doors and also for walls, on occasion.
    I like to change things up!

    I like to use one perfect silk peony in an antique bottle as part of a shelf vignette. Makes me smile every time I enter the room!

  • Jewel Jewel on Mar 19, 2017
    I have a tall urn which I keep branches in. These are decorated for holidays. For summer I use silk flowers on the limbs to look as tho they are growing. Easy to change and keep summer in a corner of my living room.

  • Yvonne Yvonne on Mar 20, 2017
    I use the silk flowers everywhere! I have a beautiful arrangement on my table and in wreaths. I love peonies, hydrangeas,, English roses and lilacs, ferns. Gorgeous wreath! I would love to have it!

    My daughter had an outdoor wedding and we used mostly silk flowers and greenery to decorate the archway and bridge.

  • Wanda Wanda on Mar 20, 2017
    I use silk flowers both on wreaths for my own use, and also for gifts. They add a bright spot of color on top of my kitchen cupboard from the wedding arrangement that I also made myself!

  • Kristen Miller Kristen Miller on Mar 20, 2017
    Hello, my favorite use for silk flowers in my home is simple flower arrangements and am dying to try it with acrylic water, which I did not know the name of until reading this thread, thank you! Also, I like to put them in my horse's mane or put in bridle and on my hat to match, they are great because they never wilt!

  • Melissa Parish Melissa Parish on Mar 20, 2017
    I use silk flowers for all sorts of projects, but especially wreaths!

  • Max19093639 Max19093639 on Mar 20, 2017
    I have a beautiful flower pot that hangs on the wall. I like to put real flowers in it but occasionally I change it out with silk flowers. I also use them on birthday packages and in door wreaths.

  • Patricia phillips Patricia phillips on Mar 20, 2017
    I have created custom made 'everlasting' floral arrangements and wreaths for clients for over 25 years, changing up and refreshing them when asked. Love purples so your wreath is lovely. What I have found, however, is most of my clients like less of the grapevine showing and don't mind the additional cost. I have done double sided wreaths for those who want to enjoy in a front window, inside as well as outside.

  • Patricia phillips Patricia phillips on Mar 21, 2017
    Thanks! So did my client.

  • Jean Jean on Mar 21, 2017
    I have a circular 1/2 basket that hangs flat against my brick wall on my porch. I fill it with "sale" silks, hang it on the wall and wait. Invariably, she comes. She builds her nest and has the perfect camouflaged with built in shelter from the elements for her and her babies comfort. At first I worried about her reaction to us coming and going, but it's like she knows we're no threat. The best part is watching the babies come out and learn to fly. Going from the nest to my plant stand and back. Then in 3-4 days they're gone. In the fall, I empty the basket, clean it and store it for the next spring. She's getting a new basket this year as the old one is getting a bit tattered. Here's a picture of the babies perched on my plant stand about 4 feet from the nesting basket.

      That is the sweetest story! Thank you for sharing it with us
