I’ve been seeing a neat new trend at the florist shops local to me – hydrangeas that had beautiful colored spots. Spots that looked just like someone had thrown confetti on them! I asked a couple of florists if they were a new variety – and none knew.But when I took a closer look, I realized how I could replicate the look without paying the hefty price tag!
Making Confetti Hydrangeas is super easy – if you know what to use! And they look like a party in a vase! Here is how I made mine…
Make Confetti Hydrangeas –
- Buy a regular bouquet of white or white/green variety of hydrangeas.
- Wrap the leaves very loosely using paper towel. The confetti hydrangea effect is less pretty if you can see paint splatters on the leaves.
- Place your bouquet in a box or place that you don’t mind paint splattering.
- IMPORTANT – use water based acrylic paints. Washable paints will get messy quickly. And oil based paints can eat through the petals.
- Gently flick paint on a paint brush on flowers, vary your paint color and the location your flicking from to give the flowers an even coat. If paint seems too thick water it down slightly. The more fluid the paint, the more even the color coverage.
- Let your flowers dry. Enjoy!
Not sure how messy or easy this project actually is?
