How to make rainbow flowers

001
Step 1- Find some pretty white flowers.
 ( carnations work best! )
002
Step 2- With a sharp knife and a superhuman steady hand, split the end of the flower's stem into four sections and put each section in a different cup of colored water.
Moo is confused
Step 3- Wait and wait with your Moo cat...
003
And Bam!
004
Pow!
005
Boom!
006
You've just made some awesome rainbow flowers.

This is cool. My son and I just did this with celery and had a blast! The leaves are so beautiful if you leave them in a few days. I've been wanting to do flowers, and now you've reminded me again. Thanks!

Victoria said...

I don´t think so!!! is awesome!!!

nonnan said...

I really love how each of the flowers an original and you cannot possibly make two the same. I had done it with celery but doing it with white flowers was a really good idea. Acutely I just really love you blog, its taking me agers to write this 'cos I keep looking at things that I’ve already looked at. I love how you use colour, not just in this post but in all of them and how you do all of these things that put a smile on people’s faces (knowing that it does puts a smile on mine :D).
