Use Celery as a Stamp to Make Beautiful Roses. Great for Valentine's Day Cards


I came across this neat idea and had to share. I can't believe I never thought to do this!
Step 1:  Take a bunch of celery and cut it about 2-3 inches from the bottom of the celery, leaving the head (which we will use as the stamp.) The higher up you cut the less dense the "petals" will  be.
Step 2:  Dip your “stamp” in the paint to create your “roses” or other designs.  You might need to water the paint just a little to avoid globs on the paper.
Step 3:  Apply even pressure as you stamp and there you have it: beauty with celery!

I would probably consider using 1 celery head per color if doing more than one color to avoid mixing the paint colors.
