How to organize silk flowers in a wreath workshop with this budget friendly DIY Artificial Flower Storage idea. Must have floral wall storage for any wreath maker!
We all know that crafters have a slight problem with over buying supplies. But once you cross over from crafter into business woman it’s time to get serious about using the supplies you have on hand.
I am constantly purchasing new silk flowers for my wreath making business. Flowers make me happy and I love designing with them.
You did know I have an Etsy Shop where I sell everyday and seasonal wreaths, holiday bows, and lantern toppers?

My mission for the New Year is decluttering and organizing my wreath workshop, starting with my over-abundance of supplies.
If you are a wreath maker then creating a DIY Artificial Flower Storage Wall will allow you to instantly see your floral supplies. Chances are if you can see them you will be inspired to create more!
Supplies Needed for Artificial Flower Storage
Small Trash Cans (from the Dollar Tree Store)
All of the supplies for this Artificial Flower Storage wall can be found at your local home improvement store. Facebook Marketplace is a great place for the wire shelving!
Directions for Installing Artificial Flower Storage
Step One: Plan your Silk Flower Storage Wall
Measure the wall space and decide where to place the wire shelving. Since my ceilings were sloped I used several different lengths of shelving to get maximum storage.
Step Two: Install DIY Flower Wall
Work with a partner to place and level the wire shelving. Use a pencil to mark where to drill the holes for the drywall anchors.
Drill a hole the same size as the drywall anchor supplied in the shelf clip packet. Install drywall anchors by tapping them into place.
Step Three: Add Trash Cans
Drill one or two holes in the top of the plastic trash cans close to the top edge. Use zipties to attach each trash can to the wire shelving.
Staggering the trash cans along the wire shelving will allow maximum artificial flower storage.
Artificial Flower Storage Tip: If you don’t like the where you installed the trash cans then simply remove them by cutting the zip-ties. Try again with a different layout until you have one that works for you!
Step Three: Organize Silk Flowers for Wreath Making
Gather all of your florals and sort them by color or season. Place them into the trash cans on the floral wall.
Being able to visually see all the wreath making supplies I have is AMAZING! I can’t wait to start designing new wreaths to add to my Etsy Shop.
