15 Floral Curtains to Go With Your Bouquet of Dried Flowers

Saffron Marigold - Updated: December 4, 2022

Low maintenance and highly customizable, dried flowers are probably your new favorite decor item if you are short on time and can barely remember to water your potted plants. (We’ve been there.) With so many flower and grass varieties suited for drying, it’s no wonder many folks incorporate dried bouquets to their living room, bedroom, or dining room decor. Not to mention all the crafting possibilities!

Here are 15 floral curtains to match your bouquet of dried flowers—we recommend two bouquets for each curtain to help you find the perfect pairing.

Are floral curtains in style?

Yes, floral curtains are in fashion! And frankly, we don’t see florals ever falling out of style. The year 2022 steered us towards bold patterns with animal prints and floral motifs, after all. Other curtain trends point to Scandi and Japandi curtains, minimalist curtains, bold graphic curtains, and nature-inspired curtains for 2022 and 2023.

How long do dried flowers last?

The average lifespan of dried flowers is one year with the proper care. However, some varieties can last up to three years if they’re handled carefully: kept away from direct sun, humidity, and strong winds.

Where to buy dried flowers?

Many arts and crafts stores and florists have a large selection of dried bouquets. If there are no hobby stores or florists near you, you can always order online. Plenty of online vendors ship across the US such as Hobby Lobby, Afloral, and Michaels.

How do you dry flowers for beginners?

There are a handful of ways to dry flowers, and they’re straightforward even for beginners! Plus, there’s no shortage of ideas on what to do with dried flowers. From gluing them to personal letters and greeting cards to encasing them in resin to display on your work table, dried flowers are DIY heaven.

Air dry

This is by far one of the most popular (and easiest) ways to dry flowers. Trim the stems to about 6 inches and tie your bouquet together with a rubber band or string.

Hang your bouquet upside down in a dry area that gets a lot of air circulation. Try to keep them in a darker area away from direct sun. It should take 2 to 3 weeks for most bouquets. Dense flowers/petals or thick leaves may take longer to dry.

Best varieties for air drying:

  • Lavender
  • Roses
  • Baby’s breath
  • Strawflowers
  • Hydrangeas
  • Larkspur
  • Yarrow


This method is best if you want pressed flowers to display in a frame or encase in resin. Place your flower (stems and leaves optional) on a paper towel. Put the towel on top of an unglazed plate or terracotta saucer. Put a heavy, microwave-safe dish on top of the flower and place everything into the microwave.

Microwave in 30-second increments. Remove once the flower petals are crispy and dry. Let cool before using.

Best varieties for microwave drying:

Flowers with a single layer of petals or flowers with smaller petals such as daisies

Oven baking

Oven baking is a great time-saver if you want to dry flowers in large batches. First, trim the stem and leaves and lay the flower heads on a baking sheet, careful not to let them touch.

Bake the flowers for roughly two hours at 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Remove them from the oven once they begin to shrivel, and let them cool outside the oven. Note that oven drying is not the best for delicate flower varieties, and you may lose color using this method.

Best varieties for oven drying:

Flowers with a single layer of petals or flowers with smaller petals


This is a traditional way of drying flowers, and results in some adorable embellishments you can use for various crafts. Grab a book and line it with paper then carefully close the book and place another heavy book or item on top such as a paperweight.

Keep in a dry, warm room until the flowers have lost all moisture. The time depends on your flower type, and can take a few days to a few weeks.

Best varieties for pressing:

Flowers with flat and/or few petals such as pansies, daisies, violets, and single-petal roses.

Using a desiccant (drying agent)

This method requires silica gel or another drying agent such as sand, corn meal, or borax. First, pour your drying agent into an airtight container. Trim off stems and foliage from your flowers. Carefully place your flowers into the container and cover them until almost submerged.

Close the container and keep it in a dry place. Wait between 4 to 7 days, depending on how thick your flower specimen is. Take your flowers out of the container and shake off any leftover drying agent. Pointed brushes work well to get excess gel or sand out of petal grooves.

Best varieties for desiccant drying:

  • Chunky flowers, moisture-filled flowers, or flowers with many petal layers
  • Carnations
  • Chrysanthemums
  • Pom pom dahlias
  • Roses
  • Zinnias
  • Sunflowers
  • Bachelor buttons

Decorating with floral curtains

No, your floral curtains don’t have to match your rug or duvet cover, but coordinating your linens can help anchor your room full of other maximalist design choices. Read our blog on colorful and floral duvet covers for flower-inspired design ideas in the bedroom.
