Hi! I hope everything is going well for you. It's been a rainy morning here in East Texas. It's a great time for crafting!
I posted this craft idea on my Mother's Day Craft Idea Blog but I wanted to post the idea here too because it is a fun project to do both by yourself or with the kids. Plus the flowers can be given for any type of gift. Enjoy!
This craft project will take some time to complete but would be easy for the kids to do with supervision of course.
I call this "Color Me Pretty."
white carnations (however many you want to color)
flower vase - for each carnation
Fill vase 1/4 full of water.
Add approximately 10 to 20 drops of food coloring. You may need more if your vases are large.
You should trim the stem at an angle before putting it in the vase. Put a flower in each vase and let it sit for a day.
Over the course of several hours you should begin to see a change in the color of the carnation!
If after about 6-7 hours your carnation has not started changing colors then add more food coloring.
