Peppermint Holiday Carnations You Can Make Yourself
One of my favorite holiday flowers are peppermint carnations, the pretty white carnation with a red fringe. A few years ago while styling a photo shoot, discovered that these beautiful holiday flowers were difficult to find.
The situation forced me to be creative, and I simply made them myself!
Here's how you can make them too:
1- Purchase a bouquet of white carnations, a 1" flat tipped brush and some red acrylic paint.
2- Dip your brush in a bowl of red acrylic craft paint; remove excess paint.
3- Hold flower stem over the kitchen sink and lightly brush the tops edges only to create the effect. Place the flower down for 5 minutes to dry.
4- Cut bottom tip of stem to refresh and place in water. Make your arrangement as usual!
In the 4 easy steps above, you will recreate beautiful Peppermint Carnations which will last for weeks.
