While some are innovating with unconventional ice pop flavors, others are focusing on their appearance with this painted popsicle project. The watercolor popsicles from Paper & Stitch is extremely quick and is an easy party trick to give your frozen treats a little extra something.

The painted popsicle uses food coloring as edible paint. You will also need a food safe paint brush. To get a good base to paint upon, blogger Brittni Mehlhoff used a popsicle recipe that consists of lemon, lime, orange, lemonade or limeade. She also suggests using food coloring drops, and not the gel.

Kids will particularly enjoy this pop of color. They are also great for people who simply love the look of watercolor and enjoy living a well-curated life.
