Quick & Easy Way – How to Store Silk Flowers

2 Materials

Are you looking for a quick, easy & inexpensive way to store your silk flower stems? An over the door shoe bag is one solution!

If you are a crafter, you probably have a lot of bits & bobs to store including a lot of silk flower stems. I know I do! I also have limited space in our home.

When I was a florist, I had a large workroom with plenty of storage. When I first started working on the downsizing process, I thought all my designing days were behind me so I didn’t really keep any of the things I might need to store silk stems in. Now that I am crafting and designing again, I really needed to come up with a creative solution on how to store my silk flowers!

Before I came up with a way to organize my silk flowers, my living room often looked like this when I was switching from one season to another!

How to Store Silk Flowers

Once I decided to start the blog and start designing/crafting again, I quickly realized that I needed a way to store my silk stems so I could readily access them. I searched on Pinterest and found a picture of how someone had used an over the door shoe bag for storage!

I ran out to the local store and found just what I needed.

I quickly started to fill it up!

I love how it hangs on the back of the office door so it can be out of sight when I am not working with the flowers. Since I am more of a visual person, I like how I can see what I have at a glance.

How To Store Longer Silk Flower Stems

For longer stems , I use a combination of metal containers, wooden carriers and sap buckets.

The buckets can be displayed inside an old box.

Doesn’t this look prettier than storing them in a plastic tote?

Suggested materials:
  • Over the door shoe bag   (department store)
  • Tin buckets   (had on hand)
