Roses are beautiful just as they are, but since we are celebrating all things rainbow this week, my girls and I couldn't resist doing this awesome, colorful rainbow roses craft! Just let the blooms soak for a day, and you'll soon have beautiful rainbow-hued flowers to enjoy. Or use them as decor for your next rainbow-themed bash...they are sure to inspire lots of oohs and ahhs!
What you will need:
White or pale pink roses, stems intact
Sharp knife (adults only, please!)
Step 1: Place a drop of food coloring into each jar, using one jar per color. For deeper color, use more food coloring.
Step 2: Using a sharp knife, carefully slice each rose stem into three separate parts, stopping halfway up the stem.
Step 3: Carefully place each stem part into a mason jar--the colors will travel up the stem sections to color different petals!
Step 4: Allow roses to soak in the mason jars for 24 hours. Then take your rainbow roses out and enjoy!
