Here's how we did it...
1. First, gather your supplies. You'll need a stalk of celery and some paints. We did our celery prints on some plain white placemats, but you could also do them on paper, a tote bag, a t-shirt, etc.
2. Carefully make a straight cut across the bottom of your celery stalk.
|It totally looks like a flower, doesn't it?|
3. Next, use your celery stump to start printing some flowers. We dabbed it onto a paper towel to remove any excess moisture, poured some paint onto a paper plate, did a couple test stamps, then got to work.
4. Then, use the ends of some of the celery sticks to add some leaves or stems to your flowers.
|I opted for leaves only, the girls made a whole stem with leaves.|
That's it! So cute aren't they? I think they really look like roses, or perhaps peonies, but definitely pretty flowers!
My son politely declined to make one himself, but he said he'd use the one I made the next time we set the table with them!
