Supplies: 
  • Celery heart
  • Paint
  • Paper or cloth
  • Sponge or sponge brush
  • Paint Brush
  • Knife
  • Cutting board
Instructions: 
  1. Using the knife, cut off the bottom of the celery heart. The celery stalks can be saved to make a snack. When cut evenly, the celery heart will look like a rose. The closer to the bottom you cut, the tighter the "rose petals" will be.
  2. Dab the celery heart with a paper towel to soak up excess moisture. The drier it is, the better the stamp will be.
  3. Use the sponge or sponge brush to apply a light coating of paint to the cut side of the celery heart.
  4. Use this as a stamp to make rose patterns on your paper or cloth.
  5. Use green paint and the paint brush to make rose stems and leaves.
  6. When finished, wash off the paint from the celery heart and compost it.
  7. Hang your artwork up to dry and have a celery snack!
