Each flower consists of 4 cheap white paper plates. (I like the uncoated ones the best!) Then, I cut four different sized flowers from the plates.
Then, I curled the petals of the flowers by curling each petal around a marker. (Note: You could also paint the flowers before doing this step.)
Then, I stapled the flowers together. (You could also glue them together, but I didn't want to wait for glue to dry.)
Then, I covered our work area (with an old Halloween tablecloth!). I poured a couple of drops of liquid watercolors into an old candy container, and we got painting!
Side note: We LOVE our liquid watercolors. They are our current favorite art supplies. You don't need a lot and you always get such beautiful vibrant colors. Yes, your hands will get dyed in the process, but everything washes off. My son wasn't always into painting with me before because he didn't like getting Tempera paint on his fingers. Maybe it was a texture thing? But he really enjoys using this paint.
Once everything dried, we covered the centers with circle stickers.
