Dying wood flowers is one of the many easy DIY crafts. They look beautiful and you can have a variety of choices with respect to the color, shapes, and sizes to customize them according to your preference. This craft usually requires a few things to get started with. You need Sola wood flowers, some paints (preferably acrylics), a container filled with warm water, and a fork or a stick to mix the paints with.
When it comes to paint, choosing acrylics can be your best option. They are easily available, and you can have any color of your choice to dye the wooden flowers with. For the mixture, you can take a bit of paint and adjust the amount of water accordingly. If you notice the mixture becoming lighter than the color you are hoping for, try adding more paint to it until you see your desired color tone flowing. Another thing which can be done is to double coat the flowers if they turn out to be way lighter than you wanted them to be. The ratio of water and paint can lie somewhere around 2:1. Now get that stick and start whisking the paint and water in a way that no paint is left behind and stuck on the container. When you feel like the mixture is ready to go, you may grab those DIY sola wooden flowers and start dipping them in the container to start dying them. If you are a bit of a clean freak you may not want to use your bare hands to make sure the flowers are entirely covered in paint, for that you can use that stick again to flip the flowers. But, if you do wish to use your hands, the paint will easily come off with just a bit of soap and water.
After you are done with dying these flowers, leave them to air dry for a day. Make sure they are set separate from each other. You can get a cardboard box like a carton of eggs, because they already have separate areas where you can place each flower to dry. Once the wood flowers are dried, you can start arranging them into however way you like. This DIY project makes the perfect wood wedding flowers.
