How to Make Artificial Flower Arrangements for Spring

Creating gorgeous spring artificial flower arrangements is easier than you may think. This how-to guide will walk you through the necessary supplies, discuss which type of spring flowers will work best and explain how to arrange artificial blooms. Once you have a plan, Silks Are Forever can provide you with the silk flowers you need to create your masterpiece.

Supplies Needed to Arrange Artificial Spring Flowers

Before starting to arrange artificial spring flowers, you'll need to assemble the following materials:

  • Vessel: A vase, mason jar, flower pot or basket are just a few examples of the type of vessel you can use.

  • Tape: Floral tape works best, but you can use transparent tape in a pinch.

  • Floral Stems: Choose your favorite varieties of spring artificial flowers.

  • Greenery: Leaves and evergreen branches add dimension to your arrangement.

  • Berry Stems: Enhance the texture and color with berry stems.

  • Decorative Elements: A plastic butterfly, bee or dragonfly can provide a nice touch.

Finding Your Favorite Artificial Spring Flowers

You probably have a most-loved springtime blossom that you want to include in your spring artificial flower arrangements. For variety, it's best to include different types of blossoms. The following are some popular spring flowers to use. Feel free to add roses, too – they begin blooming in late spring.

  • Daffodils

  • Tulips

  • Pansies

  • Primroses

  • Irises

  • Hyacinths

  • Crocuses

  • Snowdrops

Another option for creating your arrangement is by color. If your favorite spring colors are purples and pinks, you can opt for artificial blooms in those hues.

Pro tip: To add realism to spring silk flower arrangements, include flowers at various stages of blooming. For example, displaying both a rosebud and a fully-opened rose makes your bouquet look more natural.

7 Steps to Creating Artificial Spring Floral Arrangements

Once you have all the materials handy, you're ready to create artificial spring floral arrangements. Just follow these 7 easy steps.

Step 1: Create a Grid

To keep your spring artificial flowers from drooping, make a grid across the top of your vase (or other vessel) using thin strips of floral or transparent tape. Place three tape strips each way. If you have a large vessel, add more strips. Just make sure the ends of the tape don't go too far over the edge – you don't want them to show when you've finished your arrangement.

Step 2: Add the Greenery

It's best to work from the outside edge inward toward the center. Put the greenery in first.

Step 3: Position the Largest Blossoms

Add the biggest artificial spring flowers on the outer grids. It's customary to use an odd number like three because the human mind prefers odd numbers.

Step 4: Arrange the Smaller Flowers

Work in the smaller blooms around the larger ones. You can shift the larger flowers around for the best effect.

Step 5: Embellishments

Complete your arrangement by mixing in more greenery, berry stems and any decorative elements you'd like to use.

Step 6: Finishing Touches

Artificial spring flower arrangements may need to be fluffed once they're in position. You can also twist the wires in the leaves to give them a more natural look. Then shift and reposition any flowers that look awkward.

Step 7: Admire Your Handiwork

There's plenty of time to enjoy artificial flower arrangements for spring because they won't wilt or fade. Artificial spring flowers add a little sunshine to otherwise dreary days. If you decide to change things up, you can add or remove florals to give your arrangement a new look.
