Dahlias are one of my favorite flowers and I am super excited to share with you this craft and tutorial. How have you been? Are you ready for Spring to be officially here? Have you done any spring crafts? I think one of the easiest ways to decorate a home is with flowers, and though dahlias are not in bloom yet, that didn’t stop me from adding some dahlias at home ;) Please take a look below and let me know your thoughts too!
The first time I attempted to make one of these “pom pom” flowers, I was pretty intimidated. Since Martha Stewart shared her tutorial on how to make these, these “pom poms” have been used as decorations for countless parties. Please view Martha’s tutorial here and trust me, they are very doable ;)
I used Tattered Angels watercolor mist ink for my project. The ink itself is not too “heavy” for the delicate tissue paper material. Mix Tattered Angels Simply Matte Mist Watercolor Ink in “Ruby Slipper” with Tattered Angels High Impact Pigment in “White”. Then I created three shades of hot pink. I started in the “center” of my flower and painted the top of the petals with the lightest shade of pink. Then I worked my way through the outer “petals” and used the “middle” shade of pink. Finally, I used the boldest pink for the very most outer petals on the flower. This craft was very relaxing, a little messy and fun!
