Artificial flowers are the ideal substitute for fresh cut flowers in long-lasting floral arrangements or craft projects. Blossoms are artistically designed and fashioned as the craftsman studies the petals, centre and stem of a real flower. A wide array of dyes and floral paint sprays enable the use of many colours, including navy blue, for artificial flower design.

Manufactured Stems

Navy blue flowers are mass-produced and sold by silk flower manufacturers. Roses, forget-me-not sprays, gypsophila, gladiolus, irises, mums, carnations and daisies are available from silk floral wholesale sources and retailers worldwide. Identical full blooms, small blossoms and bud petals are cut, pressed and formed by machine and attached to a sturdy stem. Silk flower stems are formed with heavy plastic-coated wire. Navy blue fibre, silk and plastic flowers are also manufactured with tape-wrapped wire stems. A stem may support a single flower, spray of blossoms and buds or an entire flowering bush.

Colour

Navy blue flowers are manufactured from dyed cloth such as silk, cotton, polyester and mixed fibre. White or light blue artificial flowers are expertly sprayed with coats of florist paint to create a navy blue blossom. Spray is also used to colour the edges of blossom petals, giving the flower a navy blue highlight for an elegant look.

Uses

Artificial navy blue flowers fill in everlasting bouquets for home and business decor. Wedding bouquets, boutonnières and centrepieces with a mixture of colours are enhanced with navy blue flower combinations. Navy blue flowers are used in hair accessories, corsages, hat decorations, wreaths and wall hangings. The navy blue colour is a rich touch of beauty in a permanent funeral arrangement.

Handmade Flowers

A craftsman or artist designs and creates navy blue artificial flowers from clay, glass, porcelain, satin, burlap and cotton cloth. Navy blue paint and powdered dye are used to get the dark colour. Paper die-cuts and punched petals are glued together to create dimensional artificial flowers for decorative home projects.
