Here are some tips for looking after your dried flowers
Please place your dried flowers indoors, where they are protected from the elements (like harsh sun and heavy rain). Keep your dried flowers out of direct sunlight and areas of bright light, as this will cause the colors to fade and can make the flowers very brittle
If you like to dry flowers yourself, then Invest in a flower-drying rack - they look really cool
Clean your dried flowers by using a hair dryer set on low speed. Use the "no heat" setting to avoid damage to the flowers.
Clean your dried flowers with a feather duster. This method works best on the sturdier floral arrangements like dried flower wall pieces
If you have a dried christmas wreath, for example, then store it in the box in which they came. If you don't have the original box, store the wreath in any box that gives you enough room to gently secure it with lots of tissue paper
Seal dried flower storage boxes well. Do not store dried flowers in plastic.
