Press Paint Flowers

We impulse bought a pack of wooden bookmarks a while back. There were assorted shapes at the top of each one of them. We created hearts using this same technique and they turned out gorgeous. My daughter had so much fun making them we decided to do the same with the flowers in the pack. I have to say these might just be my favorite!

How to creatively paint wooden flowers.

Check out the step by step instructions for our press painted flowers. Then see it all in action in the video below.

We started mixing our paints with an easy to make thickening agent. 2 parts white glue to 1 part water. It works great for projects that you need the paint to flow a bit more without it getting too watery and mixing really fast. This is the same method we use when we do our pour painting projects with kids. Just mix your thickening agent, half and half with the paints you will use for your petals. You don’t need to add anything to the green paint.These press painted flowers are an amazing creative painting idea that will create a beautiful, one of a kind, art projects that your child will be proud of.Start by painting the stick, or stem, of each flower green.
