Printing flowers with a bottle

Printing flowers with a bottle

Our recycling box was overflowing so we had a look through it to see if we could use anything for crafting. There were lots of bottles of all shapes and sizes and I knew they would be perfect for printing our own flowers.

We love any craft which has instant results and this was great for my 4 year old. He chose his favourite paint colour, covered the base of the bottle with paint then pressed it on to a sheet of paper.

It’s a lovely way to create flowers although the bottle we chose was a little simple.

My son had fun experimenting with the amount of paint to use and this would be fun if using more than one bottle shape. When the flowers heads had dried we stuck green craft sticks on for the stems.
