Organizing Silk Flowers

February 27, 2009

A single maroon fabric flower against a white backgroundHow do I keep craft items organized? I have extra silk flowers from other projects that are just laying around and nowhere to put them. I tried keeping them in empty coffee cans but I keep adding more to the cans.

I purchased a large plastic box from Walmart with a lid. When I'm through with an arrangement of silk flowers I shake the dust off them and store them in the box until the next time. This keeps them clean and I also save on buying new flowers for each season of the year. I have saved a variety of flowers for several years so I just pick what I need and make a new arrangement for current use.

The best thing I ever found to store plastic silk flowers in are hanging clear vinyl purse holders. They'd have to be on the side not above a table. They are 6' long and 12" wide w/ 12 to 16 clear pouches back to back on the holder which is best hung on a rod. Each pouch is open on two sides and you alternate sides when entering the flowers (petals first - like colors together). A lot of flowers will fit without harm. Flowers stay dust free and are easily viewed. In my area (NH) these holders are easily found at yard sales for as little as 50 cents.


I store sprays of smaller flowers in large vases w/a heavy rock on the bottom and cover w/ a clear trash bag. I'm amazed at the number of creative people involved with the internet. The artistic side of my brain is top notch but the technical side is just taking baby steps. I sold silk florals at juried fairs in the Boston area for many years but as a senior I've switched to jewelry. The product, displays and supplies are so much easier to lug around. Good Luck and have fun making your arrangements.
