Painted Hydrangeas

Painted Hydrangea (7)

We needed a quick craft pick-me-up for the afternoon, and just about all I had on hand was a bouquet of white hydrangeas. They turned out to be the perfect canvas!

Simply set out the blossoms, along with watercolors.

Liquid watercolors will provide the most vibrant color, but after this mama tipped over a cup of a very bright pink (and this stuff stains, folks), we decided to play it safe with Crayola’s watercolor paints!

Travis liked seeing all the different colors appear on our white flowers.

These would make a great centerpiece for a summer dinner al fresco!
