Dried flower arrangements can last for several years if the flowers are well preserved. Dry flowers from your garden or from the florist by hanging them upside down in a cool environment or by using a special silica product in the microwave. After the flowers are dried, spray them with a floral glaze or hairspray to help them maintain their colour and shape.

Dried Fruit and Flowers

Make an arrangement with a combination of dried flowers and dried fruit for a seasonal display. Sliced apples are one type of fruit that adds a festive touch to a flower arrangement. Insert floral wire or toothpicks into the dried fruit so you can include it to the arrangement. Use any type of dried flower that you like, from roses to carnations to foxglove as part of the display. Some flowers are dried upside down with the stems attached, but the dried blossoms may be too heavy for the thin, dried stems. To attach stems to the flower blossoms, insert floral wire into the base of the flower, and then wrap it with floral tape.

Dried Flower Basket

Select a decorative basket to hold an informal dried flower arrangement. Fill the basket with floral foam and insert the stems of the dried flowers into the foam. Dried flowers with medium length stems work best for a basket flower arrangement. Create a mixture of dried wildflowers in the basket, spilling some blossoms over the sides, or insert a combination of large blossom flowers such as hydrangeas or hibiscus with smaller blossoms such as daisies and daffodils. Fill the basket with a single type of flower blossom, such as roses or tulips, to make a display to coordinate with a specific event or room decor

Dried Sunflowers

Create a tall arrangement of dried sunflowers as a centrepiece for a foyer table. Place three to seven dried sunflowers in a vase to create the display. Fill in with dried grasses or add shorter dried sunflowers to enhance the arrangement. Two tall vases filled with dried sunflowers can flank a fireplace in a room decorated in country or French country style. Make an arrangement for the kitchen table centrepiece using a single dried sunflower, cut to a height that works for the room.
