5 Creative Ways To Repurpose An Old Flower Bouquet


There is always something refreshing about receiving a bouquet of bright, fresh flowers that can instantly lift your mood. But sadly, flowers don’t last long. Eventually, they start to wilt and die. So the next time you receive fresh blooms from someone, don’t just let them sit in a corner and wilt, only later to be disposed off in the trashcan.  

Instead, try these 5 creative ways to repurpose them and give them new life:

    • Frame Them

Framing your dry flowers can be a great way to add a personal touch to your wall. This is especially significant if the flowers hold some special meaning to you, such as anniversary flowers or birthday flowers. Framing them will preserve them for a long time and keep reminding you of the person and the occasion.

    • Let Them Be

Some flowers look beautiful even when they are dry. They give a very chic, vintage vibe, making them perfect for use as home decor. Adjust the stems of the bouquet, stick them in a vase, and display it on a shelf or your coffee table to a pop of color to your space.

    • Make Potpourri

Dried flowers make for some amazing aromatherapy. Follow any online potpourri recipe to give your flowers a new, fragrant twist. Display them on a basket or a glass jar anywhere in your home.

    • Use Them to Decorate Candles

If you have a penchant for candle making, then you can use dried flowers to decorate your candles. Melt small candles and use that wax to paint the pressed flower petals on bigger candles. Place some wax on the candle, press the petal onto it using a tweezer and then paint over it with a few more layers of wax.

    • Use Them For Manicures

Why settle for nails with painted flowers when you can have real flowers on them? All you have to do is dip small bits of the petals into nail resin, place them on your nails and paint over them with two or three layers of top coat.
