MELBOURNE, Australia, Feb. 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Dried flowers may not be a new thing in the world of home decor, but they're certainly experiencing a resurgence in popularity as a choice for flower delivery Melbourne wide. Found at most florists, makers markets, and craft stores, dried flowers bring a simple, bohemian vibe to living spaces. Bunches of dried flowers are even available alongside their fresh counterparts by Amazing Graze Flowers, which provides flower delivery in Melbourne.

Drying flowers is also the perfect way to hold onto a cherished bouquet or just extend the life of a beautiful bunch. It's a stylish alternative to traditional home styling. These florals are sure to be the centrepiece (and talking piece) of any home.

Want to join in on the craze by drying a bouquet at home? Melbourne florist Amazing Graze Flowers warns that not all flowers dry well, and certain varieties will fare better than others. The florist's top picks to choose from are roses, hydrangeas, banksia, and foliage such as pampas grass and palm leaf. Amazing Graze Flowers recommends using new blooms or those that are on the verge of opening up for the best results.

To DIY a dried bouquet, here's what to do:

  1. Remove all extra leaves from the flower's base
  2. Trim the stems to the desired length
  3. Bunch flowers together, pairing like blooms or whole bouquets
  4. Attach them upside down to a hanger using string, fishing line or dental floss
  5. Choose a dark, airy space to hang them, such as a closet that's not too humid
  6. Leave them for 2-3 weeks to dry out completely
