Printing Roses Using Celery Stalks


  1. Cut your celery stalk off leaving a base about 3 to 4 inches tall.

  2. Choose paint colors that blend well to make flowers. Try 3 to 4 different shades and apply to the cut end of your celery using brushes to add small amounts of paint, alternating colors that look like petals visually.

I love craft painting with stencils and stamps. And not all stamps have to be expensive. I have seen them carved out of erasers, foam rubber, even potatoes. How about celery? If cut near the root end and used as a stamp, celery leaves a surprisingly lovely "rose" imprint- let me show you how!

I cut off the end of a celery stalk and it looked like a rose. I had to post it, it was so cute. I didn't know they looked like that! Interesting!
