To say I’m disappointed in these flowers is an understatement. I order 250 flowers and as I’m sitting here sorting them, have already thrown away 32 due to rips, holes, and.. pen writing!!? I knew I would have to get rid of some but I didn’t realize it would be this many.
My order was missing 19 flowers and some of the flowers started falling apart like they didn’t secure them well enough when they made them.
When I first dyed my flowers I used way too much paint which caused the flowers to be hard as rock but thankfully I didn’t throw them out. I took all those flowers and dipped them in warm water mixed with a teaspoon of the softener and it helped get them all soft again!
The bride didn’t like the look of silk flowers, but didn’t want to deal with real flowers either, so the sola wood flowers were absolutely perfect!!

I think I am really going to like to like these flowers. However, they need more instructions. I actually thought the glue stick was a wax stick! Simply dye instructions as well as step by step stem attachment would be really helpful
I bought the dyed skinless flowers for my upcoming wedding this summer to make my own bridesmaid & bridal bouquets. For a bride on a budget, I couldnt have asked for better products! It was super easy to do, I did 7 bouquets by myself & I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! They are so detailed with slight imperfections that make them absolutely perfect!
I assumed a beginner's kit would include something along the lines of instructions, but....there were none at all. This was my first time using sola flowers, and I just expected a little more than the supplies, particularly since some elements weren't evident (i.e. whether the block of foam should be cut exactly to the top of the box or if there should be a little bit on top). I supplemented with spare flowers I'd bought for just this purpose and looked up videos on how to stem the flowers. While I appreciate the quality of the product and enjoy the end result, I do wish the kit had come with some sort of beginner-friendly instructions and tips.
I took a chance and ordered these for a bride and groom I'm working with and was so glad I did. They not only loved them for the project I was working on but now I ordered more to make all the centerpieces! They are beautiful.
My best friend really wanted succulents for her early summer wedding, but the price was overly prohibitive for the number of table decorations she needed. Enter Sola Wood Flowers! She ordered two of the succulent assortments of 50 each, and we set to dying them today. We used a Tulip brand tie dye pack and a 1:4 fabric softener to water ratio added to the dry dye powder. We dipped, dabbed and swirled them into really authentic looking succulents!
The results are impressive! She couldn't be happier, and we'll be ordering more for her bouquet! There were a few broken petals, but those flowers will be used as edges or filler. No love lost!
I received my flowers in the mail, the very next day I made them into 3 beautiful wall hangings, one for me and two for gifts. The flowers were every thing they said they would be, great quality, advertised sizes, fast delivery, and so much fun to make a professional looking project. Will certainly order again, I have so many projects in mind.
I had to have this to add to make a centerpiece for my dining room and they are beautiful, the only complaint I have is the biggest flowers were chipped. Nothing major but on the wine colored ones the chips stand out pretty bad.
I wanted white flowers that looked real in photos, and debated forever about trying these. I made a test bouquet with the assortment to show to my toughest critics. They gushed over how good it looked! I have a lot left over to start my bridesmaids' bouquets. You may have to fluff a few (they come with simple instructions), but for the most part, they're ready to go.
The Sola Softener is amazing. It really makes a difference in how the flowers are more “workable” and don’t feel so fragile that it’s worrisome to arrange them. Very pleased with this purchase - it’s a must for making arrangements with Sola flowers!
They arrived on time with quick simple instructions for care and reshaping. The flowers were in excellent shape and looked beautiful. Very light weight for my daughters bridal bouquet and table settings. Very thoughtfully packed with wires, glue gun stick (large) and separately wrapped filler flowers. My daughter and I love the product!
I like the way it softens the wood flowers after they are dyed. Otherwise, they become very brittle and paper-like. Depending on their use, that effect may be okay, (like an arrangement that won't be handled) but in a bouquet or boutonniere, I like the softener to take the fragile edge off. I use it at a 1:10 ratio, it mixes in very well.
I absolutely love my sola wood flowers. I love them because they look real but will last forever. They are so fun to work with and very pliable if a petal gets bent or smushed during delivery. The RIP bags were honestly still high quality. Small rips that were not very noticeable in the petals. I love Sola Wood Flowers, and I have been telling everyone I know about them!!!!
Comes with a beautiful assortment of different flowers. My favorite are the roses 🌹 and ones that intentionally look like wood. You can do lots of different things with these. Experimenting for my wedding in October (which hopefully still happening with pandemic.)
These wood flowers were so easy to work with and dye. Turned out beautifully and perfect for my wedding day.
This was a wonderful bag of beautiful colors and flowers once again very happy customer. You guys are a great company and treat your customers well. I am a customer for life. Thank you!! And thanks for the how to video on painting the flower, helps so much that u stay invested in ur customers projects.
So I got a rip back taking a chance on how they may be looking. I was expecting trash, but actually they are awesome! The flowers are colored yes but I place them in warm water to give them form and they look beautiful!!!
I received my order in a timely fashion and was impressed with the quality of the flowers and other products. I can't wait to get started on my first project....Wedding 2020!!
