I feel like a kid again when we have dyed Queen Anne’s lace at my house or I stop at Katie’s and she has them on her window sill. Katie and I did this all the time when we were younger. It’s a beautiful flower (actually it’s an uncultivated form of a carrot), very intricate and delicate. My kids enjoy playing ‘scientist’ as they concoct colorful potions to transform the flowers.
You will need:
- Queen Anne’s lace
- Jars (I use pickle and pasta sauce jars)
- Food coloring
- Fill jars with water.
- Drop in a few drops of food coloring.
- Submerge stems of Queen Anne’s lace into colored water. Let soak for a few days and marvel at the colorful transformation.
This also works well with carnations.
