Want Flowers That Never Die? Consider Felt

The ultimate in long-lasting, low-maintenance floral displays: a set of three felt blooms.

Felt seems an unlikely material for household ornaments and plant-related items. We recently featured some super-cute petit plant holders, or pods, by the same people behind these.

This table-top decoration puts a post-modern, two-dimensional spin on artificial flowers (move over, silk hydrangeas). Felt flowers are deceptively delicate-looking, but surprisingly tough – ever tried tearing the thick, soft fabric?

They are made of 50% recycled materials, and come in green, fuchsia pink and grey, and three designs: rounds (circular with slot), buds (3-D looking oval) and retro (ovaloid). Perspective is provided by three different sizes – in height and flower circumference. The flowers don’t droop and they age beautifully – in fact they’re fairly indestructible.

They probably look great combined, too – the shades have been chosen to work together. A lasting addition to your decorative possibilities, at an investment of $12 for three.
