Beautifully Painted Flowers From Plastic Water Bottles

We love to recycle used things into our art work.  We are always looking around to see what will be our newest tool.  This week the good old water bottle won.

 

Supplies:

Water Bottle

Paper

Paints

2 Paper Plates

Green Marker

Step 1:  Place the paint that you want for your ‘petals’ on one plate and the color for the center of your flower in the other.  Dip the bottom of your water bottle in the paint color for your petals.  Stamp away on your paper.  After each stamp, dip your bottle back into the paint again.

Step 2: Using the flat side of the water bottle’s lid, dip it in the paint for the center of your flower.  Stamp this in the middle of your petals.
