Protecting Silk Flower Arrangements for Gravesites

contest winner icon

With Memorial Day soon approaching, I wanted to share this tip for silk flower arrangements. Spray with a couple coats of WD-40 to help repel water from rain and sprinklers, and to protect silk flowers' colors from fading due to sunlight. After spraying with WD-40, the silk flowers or greenery will stay beautiful and vibrant for a longer period of time while placed near your loved one's grave.

You could also use clear acrylic spray (found with spray paint or hobby section in store), it might last even longer.

Rustolium makes a clearcoat spray paint that they claim will protect against UV rays and discoloration. I plan to try this on my flowers.
