I’m SO excited to introduce you all to Rachel from I heart Crafty Things. She’s brand new to our Creative Team and I’m just thrilled to have her share fun ideas for you and your kids or grandkids to make together!
Rachel’s Tissue Paper Flower Art are so adorable- you’ll love them! AND with that, I’ll turn it on over to her….
Hi, I’m Rachel from I Heart Crafty Things and I’m excited to be here on Cooking with Ruthie to hopefully rub off a bit of my love of kids craftiness on you. I love creating and crafting with my kids! It started out as a fun thing I did with my oldest when he was a toddler and over the years it’s turned into priceless quality time spent with all of my children.
Today I’m sharing with you a simple Tissue Paper Flower Art Project that is great for all ages and turns out vivid and beautiful.
Materials you will need:
- white sheet of cardstock paper
- blue watercolors (we used liquid watercolors)
- paint brush
- tissue paper (variety of colors)
- school glue
- green crayon
1. Start by using your blue watercolors to paint your white sheet of cardstock. Set it aside to dry completely.
6. Finish your artwork by using a green crayon to draw flower stems on your flowers.
Even young children can have fun creating this artwork. Here is my three year old’s finished project pictured below.
Isn’t Rachel amazing! I’m totally in love her Tissue Paper Flower Art… she has tonz of creative and fun activities to make with your kiddos over on her blog!
