Coloring Carnations How-To
1. Mix food coloring with water according to the directions on the food-coloring package, making sure the water reaches a dark, rich shade of green. Fill vase with this mixture.
2. Cut ends of carnation stems under running water and place the carnations into your vase overnight. The flowers will soak up the food coloring through the stem, resulting in vibrant green petals.
