The Gerbera daisy was discovered in Africa in the 1880s. The popular 3- to 5-inch blossom has been used for weddings, centrepieces and everyday floral decorations. The multipetaled flowers have been copied in an array of materials. Artificial Gerbera daisies are attractive when used for decorating, crafts and floral art projects.
Types of Gerbera Daisies
Gerbera daises grow naturally in vibrant pink, yellow, orange, white and red colours. The artificial flower heads are dyed in a wide array of vibrant colours that reflect nature. Flower heads are made in sizes 2, 3, 4 and 6 inches across. The flowers are made to look like the traditional Gerbera with double rows of petals, double Gerbera and the fluffy-looking spider Gerbera.
Artificial flowers are manufactured from paper, fibre, silk cloth and plastic for craft, decorating and floral work. Gerbera daisies are attached to hats, hair bands, ponytail holders and barrettes. Baskets, stuffed animals, floral wreaths and other crafted items are enhanced with Gerbera daisy heads. The daisies also work well on archways, garlands, wedding decorations, centrepieces and floral pieces.
Manufacturers produce and sell Gerbera daisy petals. In the place of a ball-like centre, there is a hole. These are ideals for craft, wedding and scrapbooking projects. Artificial gems and pearls are adhered to the centre area of the flower. Decorative brads are inserted into the hole and fastened in place to secure the petals together and affix them to a project.
