These celery printed roses are an easy craft to put together that little ones will love. Not only is it a good one for making works of art to hang on the wall or fridge, but you can also use this to make thank-you cards, Valentine’s Day cards or even decorate bags.

Make sure you follow my painting board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

To make your own celery printed roses:

celery printed roses

  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Paper
  • Celery
  • String (optional)

Cut the celery from about 2-3inches above the base (where the stalks are all joined). You will be using the base part to stamp, so you aren’t wasting the part you eat.  If you like a tighter looking rose then tie the string around the left over stalks to keep them together.

Dip your celery into the paint, wipe of any extra paint and then print away.
