Tips for storing seasonal wreaths and artificial flowers

Artificial flowers are often favoured for the fact that they last longer than any kind of cut fresh flower. In many cases, they can even outlast potted plants provided that they are treated and stored properly.

In the case of artificial wreaths, the first thing you will need to do is unpack with care. It's important to take your time so that you don't cause any damage to the wreath. Most artificial wreaths are designed to be displayed outside. That said, if you do hang the wreath on the outside of your front door, for example, you should make sure that the door is protected by some kind of awning or overhang. If you are aware of a terrible storm on the way, you should bring your wreath inside just to be safe. If you don't, you run the risk of anything from slight to extensive damage.

From time to time, your wreath will gather dust and maybe even pollen. There are a few ways of dusting your wreath but, if you are strapped for time, you can use a hairdryer on the lowest and coolest settings. Cool, gentle airflow will help remove the surface dust. If you notice any stubborn dust, you should clean those parts very carefully with a soft cloth.

Your wreath should be arranged on a wire hanger. This means that, even if your wreath becomes bent out of shape, you can always reshape it. It's good to dust and shape your wreath before storing it until the next time you wish to place it on display.

When storing your wreath, or any type of artificial flower or silk bouquet, you need to ensure that the conditions are just right. This means that you need to store them in an airtight container. This will keep the dust and humidity out. On that note, you need to ensure that your flowers or wreath are completely dry. Store the sealed container in a dark, dry place. Light exposure will cause them to fade and they will become dull and unnatural looking.
