Two of my greatest joys are gift giving and painting. There's something about making and giving a handmade gift that feels really special. The first painting I did on my own was for a Mother's Day gift (which obviously inspired a ton more flower paintings, literally). I couldn't think of anything to craft in that instance, so I just decided to paint flowers. It's still one of my favorite things to gift! And now I want to inspire YOU to paint a few for your own gifts! It is the most colorful time of the year after all! 

Where to begin if I have no painting experience you ask!? I've rounded up my favorite DIY painting tutorials to inspire you to paint a gift or two this year! 

 1. DIY Tulips

2. DIY Peonies

3. DIY Anemones

 If you give one (or all) a try, share on instagram with @evelyn_henson or #behindthepalette.
