I don't know what it is about flower paintings, but they are just so fun to make! This q tip painting flower is no different. It's so pretty and makes great art to hang for display. This lavender craft is great fine motor practice, too. Younger kids may need a bit of help with where to paint, but it's a great activity.

You can even pair it with an afternoon spent exploring lavender. I love to pair crafts like this lavender painting with learning about the subject. You can even read through a book about flowers and plants!

Lavender painting supplies

  • Thick white paper (or thin cardstock)
  • Paint - purple, white, and green
  • Cardboard with flat edges
  • Q tips

How to paint lavender

STEP ONE: Gather your supplies

Before you get started, gather up your supplies so you have everything within reach while you do make your lavender flower painting. The cardboard will be used for painting stems so it can be just a small piece ripped off a box lying around. 

STEP TWO: Paint stems for your lavender painting

Time to start painting! Begin by dipping the edge of your cardboard into green paint and then applying it to the bottom half of your paper. You'll want to make sure to apply this vertically with a slight angle to it as shown below. This will be the stems for your q tip lavender painting.

STEP THREE: Paint lavender flowers

Next, use the q tips dipped in purple paint to paint flowers around the stems, starting from about halfway up. You'll want to add less dots at the top and more at the bottom to create a natural look to the lavender painting.

STEP FOUR: Finalise your lavender flower painting

To finish up your painting, dip another q tip into white paint and fill in the gaps on your lavender flowers. As you do this, you'll notice some colours lighten, creating more natural colouring in the lavender. You're all finished painting your lavender craft!
