Some Like It Hot (Pink): DIY Painted Flowers

Valentine’s Day may have just passed, but you can still add a bit of romantic pink to your space anytime of the year.

We were charmed by how easily stylist Sania Pell transformed a few small sprigs of flowers and berries from her garden in London into neon pops of color. All you need to create your own is a few simple materials (see below). For step-by-step instructions, see Sania Pell.

Above: In addition to a few specimens from your garden, you’ll need: neon-colored acrylic paint, small pieces of felt in a matching color, glue, scissors, and a paintbrush. You can mount the finished flowers on heavy cardstock or other paper.

Above: “Painting is easiest on pale flowers like the white hydrangea but darker colored flowers and berries work too, they just need a couple of coats of paint,” says Ms. Pell.

Above: These flowers are sure to brighten anyone’s day.
