Wooden Flower Arrangement

Choosing Filler Flowers for Your Wooden Flower Arrangement

Have you heard of Luv Sola Flowers? They’re wooden flowers for crafters, florists, interior designers, and more. With them, you can arrange flowers that last a lifetime in your home. The best thing? You don’t have to be a professional to complete a wooden flower arrangement you’ll be happy to display.

Even better, with the right filler flowers, your friends and family will think your arrangement was purchased in a high-end store. It’s up to you if you tell them you’re the artist.

What is a Wooden Flower?

Wooden flowers provide you with durability and longevity, meaning your wooden flower arrangement can stand the test of time. Yes, you still need to be careful with them, but they’re stronger than normal flowers and need far less maintenance.

Luv Sola Flowers are made from the Shola plant. When you purchase wooden flowers, you will choose if you want the skin of the shola plant on or off. Raw flowers do not have any skin and come to you completely natural. They are ivory in color. Skin flowers have the skin of the shola plant still on, creating a unique dimensional flower that can’t be found anywhere else. Both options blend well together, so much so that you can order an assortment bundle that includes both styles.

As mentioned, these wooden flowers do not require any maintenance, but you do need to keep them in a cool place in your home and away from direct sunlight. Other than that, all you need to do once you’ve created your wooden flower arrangement is enjoy it!

You will notice a variety of wooden flower types on the Luv Sola Flowers website. Selections come in packages of one dozen unless you opt for an assortment pack. Once you’ve decided on the wooden flowers you want, it’s time to amp up your arrangement with filler flowers.

What are Filler Flowers?

Small flower sprays are considered filler flowers. To fill in the spaces between the main flowers that make up a floral composition, florist designers utilize filler flowers. 

A floral arrangement gains additional complexity from the textures of filler flowers. When using filler flowers to complete an arrangement, it’s important not to use too many. This can make the layout appear crowded and disorganized.

Smaller leaves from filler foliages work well as accents to add harmony and uniformity. In order to lighten or soften an arrangement, feathery plants like Setaria can be used. Contrast is created by the rough textures of filler flowers like Protea Repens.

Filler flowers available at Luv Sola Flowers are dried and preserved fillers with incredible detail, quality, and color. They provide both height and color to your arrangements, sometimes even stealing the show. The addition of filler flowers rounds out your wooden flower arrangements filling in any gaps.

Luv Sola Flowers offers a large selection of filler flowers, good for whatever style you need in your home. The following is a list to consider depending on your theme.

Boho & Rustic Style Filler Flowers

Floral Buttons - pink and fuzzy circular ball-shaped flowers with a straw stem.

Billy Balls - similar to the floral buttons, only in a warm golden color.

Phalaris - gorgeous and rust-colored with a fabulous texture. Phalaris is a dried grass with great height for your boho or rustic arrangements. 

Preserved Caspia - this gorgeous wispy spray provides height and a feathery look for your more whimsical boho creations.

Sleek and Modern Filler Flowers

Preserved Spiral Eucalyptus  - tall and moody, the deep color of this plant works well to ground your arrangements. It has an amazing fragrance and wonderful texture.

Protea Repens - angular and sharp features make this option unique in any arrangement it’s found. You can find this option in yellow, red, or orange.

Luv Sola Flowers offers several other options for filler flowers, as well as additional green filler flowers. You’re sure to find the best assortment to complete your arrangement. When ordering filler flowers, be sure to pay attention to the details. Some filler flowers come in bundles, while others are a single stem. Height is something to pay attention to as well.

Can You Customize Your Wooden Flowers?

Filler flowers provide vibrant color for your wooden flower arrangements. You might wonder if you can add color when using raw wooden flowers as well. Part of the popularity of wooden flowers, besides the fact that they last for years, is the ability to customize them however you see fit.

You can use regular interior house paint, fabric paint, or acrylic paint to dye your flowers if you do not want to leave them in their natural ivory state. You can also add fragrance to your wooden flowers by adding a drop or two of essential oil on the back of the leaves. You do not need to use much, but you will need to reapply the scent every once in a while. There are certain scents that might help lift moods or provide relaxation that you may consider.

When you get your wooden flowers, you may need to fluff them gently to get them into prime shape. This is simply due to the shipping process. You can lightly spray them with water and gently reshape the petals with your fingers. The wooden flower will need to dry completely before dyeing it or using it in your arrangements.

If you choose to add stems, you will need hot glue. The process only takes a few seconds, and the flowers will be ready to use. You can watch this Luv Sola Flowers video if you have questions about adding stems.
