How to Care for Dried Flowers
General Care Tips
I love to use colour in my pieces. These colours will fade over time but this is the charm of dried flowers - their appearance is constantly evolving. With proper care, your dried flowers will last many months, and even years.
Keeping them away from direct sunlight will help to slow the fading. They should also be protected from wind, humidity and moisture.
If your dried flowers need to be dusted off, you can use a hairdryer on a cool setting and gently 'dry' them to blow off any dust. If you notice any seed pods dropping, you can use a light spray of hairspray over the flowers.
Unpacking your dried flowers
My dried floral pieces are shipped in brown cardboard boxes and carefully packaged to protect them in transit. As they are made from natural materials, they can be delicate and should be handled with care to avoid breaking stems, especially when removing them from their box.
It's normal for some of the natural materials to shed in transit and my pieces include extra foliage to allow for this. But please get in touch if there has been any noticeable damage during the shipping process.
Caring for your dried flower frame
I recommend hanging your frame in a space away from direct sunlight and humidity. This will help preserve the colours and prevent condensation.
If you notice shedding or condensation inside the frame, you can remove the back off the shadow box, carefully lift out the dried flower art and wipe away the shedding or condensation. Please take care not to turn the frame upside down as the glass is not glued onto the frame and may fall out.
Caring for your dried flower wreath
My dried flower wreaths are designed for indoor use. I recommend you hang or display them indoors away from direct sunlight, heat sources, and humidity.
I recommend using a large hook to hang your wreath. Alternatively, you can simply hang it from a nail or screw on a wall.
When not being displayed, I recommend laying your wreath flat in its box and storing it in a cool, dry location away from heat and humidity.
