Celery Painting

Using kitchen leftovers to create unique works of art? So much fun! My girls and I love this Pinterest-inspired celery painting craft that makes beautiful, block printed flowers. Try creating multiple prints and framing them in simple wooden frames for a wall art series, or use on craft or butcher paper to great unique, handmade gift wrap. The possibilities are endless!
