Painting Flowers Art Project Idea

Painting Flowers Art Project Idea

I recently taught my Mommy and Nana how to make paper flowers for the dinner table. I thought of this all by myself! First I gathered up the silicone flower coasters on the table. I said I wanted to make them. I said I wanted to paint.

Then I asked for paper and a pencil to trace around the flowers. Of course, the paper had to be real watercolor paper so it would be stiff when we cut it out. And, I paint with lots of water so we didn't want the paint to rub through the paper.

Of course the next step was painting! I love mixing colors and making pretty pictures. So I painted in the shapes I drew. All by myself, can you tell?

Then the next step was to let the flowers dry. Then we cut the flowers out.

Next I found some pretty buttons and pipe cleaners. Purple is my favorite color like I have mentioned before, so I picked purple buttons. Then I twisted the pipe cleaners together for strong stems. You have to cut a little slit in the paper to allow the pipe cleaners through. The button holds them in place.

Then I could do the flower arranging for dinner! Aren't they pretty?

I can't believe my Mommy and Nana didn't know how to make flowers. But now they do! And, did you know, you can just laminate the painted flowers and make your own coasters?

And then you might get to have a real tea party! Like me!

I hope you get to paint flowers, too. They have so many uses!

Wasn't that fun?
