Yes, arrangements of fresh flowers are really pretty to look at and a great way to decorate your home in any season. However, these usually do not last very long and have to be redone again and again. The perfect alternative is the arrangement of dried flowers, because it lasts forever and is no less attractive – ideal if you want to decorate with long-lasting flowers to match spring. You can buy dried flowers for this purpose, or you can dry flowers yourself. We’ll show you how you can use dried flowers to make beautiful dry arrangements for spring.
Dried flower arrangements, but also wreaths, are often associated with autumn. In order to avoid this and so that the dry arrangements for spring really go with spring, not only the right types of flowers are important. You should also pay attention to the choice of color. In order to achieve a well-filled arrangement, you will also use other types of plants in addition to the flowers (e.g. grasses, wheat and others). It is best to choose them dyed in colors associated with spring or use them a little more sparingly. After three simple instructions for sample arrangements, you will find a few pictures with dried flowers as arrangements, which should serve as inspiration.
Dry arrangements for spring in strong colors
Our first idea impresses above all with the strong colors that are also typical of spring with all its diverse flowers. So if you want particularly colorful dry arrangements for spring, which are guaranteed to put you in a good mood, opt for this idea.
- Dried plants and flowers in bright colors (you can also dye them yourself with spray paints)
- Planter / planter or any other container
- Floral foam
Cut the floral foam so that it fits into the selected container and then place it in it. And then you can start plugging. How exactly you should arrange the individual parts depends above all on how or where the dry arrangements are to be displayed for spring: If it is later on a wall, the highest elements should be at the very back and the arrangement should be towards the front get smaller.
If, however, it will be the center point (for example as a table decoration in the middle of the table), then arrange rows of plants and dry flowers in a circle: In the middle are the highest, around and in a circle you then distribute the next highest and so on. In this way, you ensure that the arrangement can be viewed from all sides and that none of the plant parts used are hidden, but can come into their own.
For this example of colorful dry arrangements for spring, cut out the tall elements first. Stick them in the foam. If you are happy with the layout, move on to the next row. You can remove, exchange and / or replace elements at any time.
Decoration with dried flowers in a bell jar
Glass bells are simply made to display various decorations and arrangements. They are also protected from dust under the glass. Perfect right? Take in a few dried flowers, grasses and plants and make the following idea for dry arrangements for spring. Artificial moss is also used for the dried flower decoration in the bell jar.
- Bell jar
- Artificial moss
- any dried flowers and plants
- Floral foam
Cut a circle out of the cardboard that fits on the bottom of the bell jar. Then cut the floral foam in the same way. This should be a little smaller than the cardboard circle. Glue the floral foam to the cardboard and spread glue on the foam to cover it with the artificial moss afterwards. Finally, cut the dried flowers and plants to the desired size and stick them in the foam in any arrangement. Make sure the pieces aren’t too long to fit under the bell jar.
Ball-shaped drying arrangements for spring to hang up
Such balls are known as kissing balls and often decorate apartments, especially at Christmas time as a substitute for mistletoe or wreath, but are also very popular for weddings. However, we also find the idea perfect if you want to make dry arrangements for spring. You can make such an interesting spring drying arrangement using either a styrofoam ball, spherical floral foam, or chicken wire.
Styrofoam is a bit harder and more suitable for firmer branches. If, on the other hand, you would like to use thin flower stems or other delicate plant parts, it is better to use the classic floral foam or shape a ball out of chicken wire, through the mesh of which you then simply stick the dried flowers.
