How to Make a Watercolor Flower Bouquet

You’ll only need a few basic supplies and about half an hour to create this project. Even younger crafters can get in on the fun. Each flower will be totally unique, and there’s no pressure to create something perfect; just have fun with the colors and shapes. Here’s what you’ll need.

The watercolor part of these flowers is actually created using the ink from water-based markers like Tombow Dual Brush Pens! For a full, step-by-step photo tutorial on how to paint these blooms and wrap them up into a bouquet, check out my post on the Tombow USA Blog.

This watercolor bouquet is a great gift for people who love flowers but are allergic, like me! It’s also something that can be kept and enjoyed forever, unlike real blooms that have a limited lifespan. You can glue the flowers in place inside the paper wrapper, or you can leave them loose so that they can be rearranged again and again.
