Celery Roses

Make beautiful roses by printing with celery stalks.   This simple art technique is perfect for all ages and the resulting rose prints are really effective.  Print the rose shapes in a ring and this craft goes perfectly with the nursery rhyme Ring O Ring O Roses. Alternatively these rose prints make a great valentines craft, maybe printed onto a card, or as wrapping paper?

  • Red or pink paint
  • Green paint/ pens to add on the leaves

We simply dipped our bunch of celery into a plate of paint and started printing roses. I used green paint to add leaves to my roses.  Daisy (15 months) simply had a great time printing and spreading paint across the paper.
