Rainbow Dyed Daisies



I love daisies. Their sweet summer faces always delight me as they freckle the fields. I thought it might be fun to use that daisy white as a palette for a rainbow of colors. 
My littlest and I really enjoyed watching them change color over time. It was magic before our eyes! 
Best part... it's super simple.

Gather up some daisies.

Cut the daisy stems below water at an angle and cut them fairly short, so the dye has less to travel up. 
Place 10-20 drops of food coloring into a small vase or jar (or we used tall shot glasses). If you want to do a rainbow of flowers, make one up for each color.
Add warm water to the dye and place your daisies in their new colored drink!


Leave them overnight and wake up to a rainbow!!







Can you tell I was in love with this project?!

So pretty.



In daisy love,
Shanti

  4. I have ordered an essay with Ewriters company a few months ago as I was overwhelmed with other essays and exams coming up. They delivered my work a few days in advance and when I asked if the writer could add something else that I needed, my writer helped me straight away. They even fixed my order on a Sunday and that tells a lot about the customer service that they have. I will definitely recommend this to any of you who is looking for a little help with essays at a stressful time.
