The first, strategic and fundamental step for the success of one's creative experiments consists in paying particular attention to the moment in which the flowers and leaves are cut from the plants or stems of origin. This operation, if carried out clumsily, can make the flower unusable for the purposes of composition. Therefore, before starting to create, you need to read up to have a general smattering of flowers and plants that are best suited to be used in creative compositions. With a few little tricks, you can manage to trap in a moment of eternity the superfine and natural beauty of the most beautiful flowers, the most colorful goblets, the most romantic and pleasing scents and essences. As mentioned, not all flowers are therefore suitable for drying, so for the first artistic experiments, to be on the safe side, it is good to focus on roses, lavender stems, mimosa sprigs, wheat ears, heather stems and sunflowers. Flowers with more delicate petals, such as tulips, could instead be candidates for certain death by trying to eternalize their delicate charm. Furthermore, consider that often decorative elements such as pine cones and dry leaves can facilitate the composition and reduce the risk of a final result ... withered! The flowers should be collected during the hottest hours of the day, paying close attention
The flowers will be collected during the hottest hours of the day, taking great care in cutting them and handling them, and making sure they arrive intact at the time of drying. Never collect flowers and leaves after a downpour: the moisture they have absorbed will invariably compromise drying and resistance. The flowers to be harvested must therefore always be as free of humidity as possible, and already in the initial phase of selecting the stems to be harvested it is advisable to carefully evaluate this aspect. To proceed to a proper drying activity, it must be considered that each flower can have its own peculiarities: if in fact the flowers with rigid and sturdy stem, like roses, need to be hung upside down, with the glass turned downwards, in a dark place, well ventilated and possibly free of humidity, for the most delicate and fragile flowers, such as lavender and herringbone flowers, it is preferable to proceed to a drying to be carried out in a horizontal position. Do not forget also the classic and romantic version of drying by pressing between the pages of voluminous tomes: the compressed and dried flowers with this mode lend themselves well to the realization of floral wall compositions and of decoupage effect trays and tiles. Strategic advice: after the complete drying of the flowers and leaves, spray a generous layer of hairspray, to further stiffen the petals, make them dust-free and preserve their shape without fear of subsequent sagging. The lacquer also acts as a fixing and protective color, but slightly covers the natural scent of flowers. There are on the market, in shops for florists and artisans, types of lacquer specifically for the protection and coating of dried flowers from composition. Now comes the most beautiful moment, the one in which it is possible to let go of the creative inspiration to give free rein to the imagination and create many wonderful floral compositions, original and lively. Let yourself be inspired by the seasons, creating Christmas wreaths for the winter or centerpieces with chestnuts, vine leaves in the most varied shades of color, dahlias and small plastic fruits for the autumn. Follow the natural flow of time embellishing your summer home with compositions of sunflowers and other bright flowers, and fill the house with beautiful and brilliant red roses in the most romantic spring time.
Make compositions of dried flowers: Creativity in freedom
From pout pourri bags to closet, to be achieved by combining the tones of the fabric to the shades of the petals, to the centerpieces for large and small celebrations, the secret is all in creativity!
And now let's try an example: take a woven reed support in the shape of a garland (but you can also make that base) and try to weave a braid ribbon in shades of wisteria or blue. Take some holly leaves, some pine cones that you have previously sprayed with silver with a spray dye, a roll of fake silver and one blue pearls, a can of "spray snow", a spray can of glitter, and three dried white roses and previously sprayed with fixing lacquer.
After weaving the trimmings ribbon, alternately pass the two pearl ribbons, weaving them together with the garland. Fix the three roses in one place with a hot pistol, with the glasses turned towards three different directions but close together. Surround them with holly leaves arranged in the same direction as the roses. Finally, place two pine cones at the antipodes of the trio of roses, always fixing them with hot glue. Finally, gently spray a wave of glitter glitter on roses and all over the garland, and a puff of snow on the holly leaves and pine cones, for a realistic Christmas effect. Et voilа, your garland is served!
