Ways to Reuse Leftover Flowers

Browse the latest bouquets in our collection below

A glorious bouquet of flowers in the house or your workplace never fails to lighten the mood.

Not only does it naturally freshen up the air, a new bunch of blooms are proven to lift people’s spirits, brighten the surroundings as a beautiful décor and instantly enhance the room. They are also a delight to look after, and flower care offers a sense of purpose to some, allowing them to focus as well as gaining a peace of mind.

But what could be done when the inevitable day comes where the flowers begin to wilt? Would you chuck out the dead petals and dried-out leaves? Here at Gift Flowers Hong Kong, we believe in upcycling your leftover flowers.

The Benefits of Upcycling

We absolutely love the idea of upcycling, that is, reusing things that are generally not considered useful. Not only could we help save money by making use of our own resources, our actions help eliminate rubbish in our landfill sites, and less unpleasant chemicals are released into the air and the ground. This in turn can greatly help the environment.

If you are someone who loves exploring your creative side, upcycling gives you the perfect opportunity to expand your horizons. Whether you’re working with unwanted fresh flowers or wilted, dry flowers, the possibilities for artistic creation is endless. Who knows? Maybe your seemingly simple art project may turn into something popular, something of high-demand or even a business idea.

As for upcycling our leftover, withered flowers, if we are to dig deeper, we can find a wide variety of uses in them.

Things to Make with Our Leftover Flowers

There are many things you can create with your leftover flowers. Here are three fantastic ideas for you to try out.

  1. Make a Potpourri: Dried flowers still retain their scent and helps you to de-stress, making them fantastically therapeutic items. Simply collect all your dried flower parts, place them in a cute basket or a glass jar, and put your creation anywhere around your home where you think needs a little freshening.
  2. Pressed Flower Bookmarks: A big fan of books? Then you will need a few pretty bookmarks to keep you organised. Press your desired flowers between two sheets of absorbent paper and press with a book. Repeat, if necessary, to ensure all the moisture is out. No two bookmark are the same with this method, so the result is unique and personalised.
  3. Scented Dried Flower Candles: Create these gorgeous scented candles in a matter of minutes! Melt some candles in a tray and use the wax to stick the wilted flowers onto existing candles. Seal over the flowers with more wax to keep it nice and secure.

Not only are these projects a lot of fun to make, they are also a great help to the environment and are wonderful gifts to give others. If you don’t have much time to create flower gifts, don’t fret. Our premium flower shop in Hong Kong offers an extensive range of Hong Kong flowers and fabulous flower gifts, suitable for all occasions.
