This Flower Stamp Art is the perfect craft idea for withering flower bouquets. Flowers make amazing paintbrushes and create the most beautiful art!
You can get this craft ready in no time because the prep is super simple. All you need is an old, withering (but not dry) bouquet of flowers. The bigger the variety of flowers, the more beautiful patterns and stamps you can create!

Materials for flower Stamp art:
- Place the desired colors of washable kids paint onto a paper plate and arrange the cut flowers onto each paint. I kept a stem of 2-3 inches so kids can hold them easier.
TIP- to create even more beautiful stamp art, blend/swirl a couple of paint colors together and stamp the flowers into the blended paint.
What is my child learning and improving?
- Recycled craft (teach the kids that there’s many ways to use up something old you’re about to throw away!)
- Process art
I like how Rachel of Tinkerlab summarized process art. “Process Art is art that is child-directed, choice-driven, and celebrates the experience of discovery. In process art, the final product is always unique and the focus lies in the creation of the work, not the outcome.”
- Fine motor skills (holding the flowers by the stems, etc.)
- Creativity (picking and choosing the colors of the paints)
