Dandelion Painting an Easter Wreath


Today Cheyanne and I made this beautiful Easter Wreath by painting with dandelions. It was so much fun and it created a beautiful Easter decoration.


First, you need to pick some dandelions.


To create the wreath we used: Dandelions, paint, poster board (or paper), paper plate, scissor and glue.



Use the dandelions as a stamp.




It created a beautiful picture.





If you mix the colors it is o.k., it is still pretty.
Allow the paint to dry. Cut out the egg shapes. Cut out the center of the paper plate. Glue on egg shapes.

That is so sweet! The picture of your little girl picking flowers is cute. Sadly, we have no dandelions, yet:(

Really pretty! We don't have any dandelions here yet but we'll have plenty soon so we'll try this.

This turned out GREAT!! I love the effect of painting with a dandelion.

I'll have to come to your yard to get some though because we don't have any dandelions - just CLOVER! Perhaps we could paint with that?!

I love your idea of using dandelions as a stamp! I usually hate those things, now I can have the kids pick them (as I get rid of them) and use them in a fun way :)
Thanks for sharing !
