My daughter’s third birthday party was a lot of fun to plan!  I wanted to make some simple invitations for it that didn’t take a lot of time. With watercolors being a fun trend right now, I decided to spruce up my invites with a bit of watercolor paints!


You’ll need a few supplies to make a watercolor invitations:

Watercolor Paper (cut to 8.5 x 11 inches)
Paint brush
Pallet to mix watercolors

I created a simple invitation on my computer and printed it out in black and white onto the cut down watercolor paper.

I decided to paint a little watercolor onto some of the letters in the invitations.  I also added a few stripes to the top and bottom!  But really anything is possible!

And, just like that, the invitations went from boring to beautiful!

I loved that each invitation was a little unique. Each one was just a little bit different with each stroke of the paint brush.

I was even able to dress up the food labels with the watercolors; they really are a lot of fun to play with!
