You can make these beautiful multicolored roses right in your own kitchen with only food coloring and your imagination.
When I saw the roses, I immediately thought “tie-dye”– kind of a sixties vibe, don’t you think?
Although the difficulty level listed in this 6-step tutorial is in the medium range, I can’t imagine why.
- Start with some white roses
- Using scissors, split the stems at the bottom
- Set up a few cups of water- and add food coloring
- Dip each split section of the stem into a different colour
The rose will absorb the food colored water through the stem and the colors will eventually travel up to the petals of the flower!
The coolest thing about this project is that each rose you make is unique and beautiful-just as roses should be.
One note: the author of the tutorial noted that she began with rose blossoms and it took a couple of weeks for the roses to fully bloom to her liking.
Once the flowers have absorbed and morphed into your masterpiece, simply place them in a vase and enjoy!
