Start by making your own watercolors with five simple ingredients.


If you don't already have a set of watercolors, you can easily DIY your own with food coloring, baking soda, corn starch, corn syrup, and vinegar. Instructions here.

3. Chevron Wall Print

One of the best things about painting with watercolors? Mistakes don't really matter. The end result usually looks best after you 1) decide on some complementary colors, and 2) blend and match everything. But other than that, there aren't a ton of rules to follow. (And this canvas print is a great starter project.)

13. Literary Watercolor Garland

An adorable way to upcycle old books, and simple enough for kids to pitch in too. Instructions here. (Stick with a certain color scheme — like orange and black, or red and green — for easy holiday decor.)
