STEP 1: Prep your paint:

The first step towards making your own adorable fork painted flowers is to prepare the paint! Select the colours you would like to use for the flowers and pick a shade of green paint for the stems. Add the paint to a paint pallet.

STEP 2: Print stems using a craft stick:

We'll start making the stems of each flower. To do this, first, dip the thin edge of your craft stick into the green paint and then stamp it onto the paper you've chosen to use as a canvas.

If you don't have a craft stick you could alternatively use cardboard as a stamp and print using the thin edge.

Repeat many times so you have a row of stems across your paper or cardstock.

STEP 3: Print flowers using a fork

Now, we need to take care of the flowers. Create your fork painted flowers by dipping the fork into the paint and stamping it into your paper, right on top of the stems you previously painted.

Press down hard with your fork and rock it back and forth a little to make sure you have a complete flower shape.

Repeat using a second colour (or more).

The type of fork that you use for your fork painting will affect the overall design. The flowers created using a child's plastic fork are quite different to those made using an adults metal fork.

This is an optional step, but it's SO fun, and it really ties the design together (plus, kids love it!) Take some extra paint in any colour you want and flick it across your picture, creating a splatter effect.
