I love the versatility of watercolor and have put together this list of my favorite DIY watercolor projects from some truly beautiful blogs.

10 Beautiful DIY Watercolor Projects

These gorgeous mugs were created with a simple marbling technique using finger nail polish!

These non-toxic homemade watercolor paints are a great project for the kiddos. All you need to create different colors is food coloring.

These save the date cards were created using a custom stamp, then carefully painting in delicate details. Matching envelopes were created by painting a couple of stripes across the front of the envelopes.

Love, love, love this beautiful and inexpensive gift wrap made from freezer paper.

These watercolor paper flowers might take a little time and patience but I think the effort is well worth it. 

I may have to borrow this idea for my own business cards! A simple and elegant way to customize each card. Purchase a custom stamp and splash a little paint on each one.

What a fun way to decorate a plain ol’ tee! Create a stencil from freezer paper and use watered down acrylic paint to create a watercolor type look.

I think these are the prettiest meringues I’ve ever seen! Simply dip the edges into diluted gel food coloring.

Show a little state pride with this geometric watercolor painting. All you have to do is connect the dots!

How about some festive striped bunting for your next party?

Go make something!
