Our lovely shoe customer, Yukiko Tan showed me her DYI Rainbow Roses project today. She had pretty white roses dyed colorfully for her wedding.
So here’s what you need!
Food coloring of your preferred color. I bought red, yellow and blue in this case.

Of course you’ll be needing flowers.
The Making of Rainbow Roses
You actually can use any types of flowers as long as they are a light color. I personally think that roses are a good choice because the different petals will create layers.
Then you need a pair of scissors

and you need to cut the stalk diagonally
Place them in the colored water
and that’s pretty much it. I did kinda over cut the stalks so they ended up to be quite short. That would perhaps explain why the color went up so fast to the petals, I started seeing results in about half hours time
in about 9 hours time this is what happened to the roses
Yukiko recommends that you put it in the colored water for about 24-48 hours but she just really couldn’t wait that long. The flowers you see her are a result of her immersing into water for just 12 hours. They look very pretty already just like that.
It’s a really fun project you can try by yourself for your wedding!
