Spring is a favorite around here for many reasons. The sun, the light, the flowers… The Flowers! To show off your flowers in pretty style these dip dyed bouquet holders are a great addition to any bouquet. They’re subtle, artistic, and completely gorgeous on their own. Adding flowers to the dip dyed paper will transform any simple spring bouquet into a show stopping gift.
Use the handmade bouquet holders to present thoughtful hostess gifts, to decorate a brunch, or to hand out for your dearest friend’s birthday. The process of dip dyeing paper is simple enough you can make stacks of the paper at once and have plenty on hand for making everyday flowers more beautiful. With spring brunches in full effect, Easter coming quickly, and Mother’s Day right around the corner – it’s a great season for giving pretty flowers and celebrating the ladies in your life.
To make the dip dye bouquets; fill a few bowls with water and the dye of your choice. Fabric dye is a great option for getting a nice bold color. The more subtle colors can be achieved by adding coffee, beets and other natural elements to the water. Gently roll length of paper and dip into the bowls.
Clip the dip dyed papers up and hang to dry. Once completely dry – tie up the flowers, overlapping the papers to create these pretty spring bouquets.
