If you have all of the vital elements on hand, making a Hand-Dyed bouquet is a breeze. If you want to produce your unique hand-dyed bouquet, you’ll need to have the following materials:
- Hand Clippers
- White Flowers
- Food Color
- Colored paper (optional)
Now since you get all of the components, let’s get started on making a Hand-Dyed bouquet. Following these steps will make creating your Hand-Dyed bouquet a breeze:
Step 1: To begin, fill a large glass or jar halfway with water. Using a spoon, mix in a few squirts of food coloring (about 20 to 30 drops) to the water. Don’t compromise on the coloring, as deeper is desirable and will turn up better in the flowers. For each new color, start with a clean glass bottle.
Add food coloring
Step 2: The flower stems should then be trimmed at an inclination with hand clippers or sharp cutters to avoid air bubbles.
Cut the stem
Step 3: After that, submerge the flower stems inside this dyed water. Allow at least 24 hours for the petals to soak in their color baths. You may need to put more water and color depending on how fast your flowers gulp down their water. It could take up to 48 hours for the full color to appear.
Submerge the flowers
Step 4: Extract the flowers from the color baths once you’re happy with the color development, fill a vase or clean glass with fresh water, and create the bouquet with gorgeously dyed flowers and colored papers.
Arrange the bouquet
- Beware with sharp objects: Keep your eyes open while using trimmers and cutters, as even a slight distraction can cause injuries.
- Work carefully with food colors: Food coloring can stain, so be attentive with them while soaking the flowers or mixing them with water, etc.
