25 creative watercolor projects for all skill levels

This post includes affiliate links

Hello!  Today’s roundup of 25 Creative Watercolor Projects will hopefully inspire you as much as it has inspired me.  I really love watercolor (thanks mom!), both for creative projects of my own and for the creative projects I do with my kids.  Although they are only 1 and 2 years old, both of my kids really love to watercolor, or was they say, water paint.  My little girl just needs a little help keeping the brush out of her mouth!

All of these projects I found are not only beautiful be great for kids or adults.  I recently water-colored the Easter Resurrection Set Free Printable that I posted here on the blog and I was thrilled at how easy it was, and how vibrant the colors turned out.  After that project and looking through all of these ideas and techniques I plan on water-coloring a lot!

I’m a total novice at watercolor, however.  But one of my goals is to improve my watercolor skills.  To do this I am working my way through No Excuses Watercolor: Painting Techniques for Sketching and Journaling and loving it!  I keep thinking, “Oh my goodness, I’m pretty good at this!”


If you have ever thought about actually learning to watercolor, get the book, stop making excuses and enjoy.  I am so glad I did!

I hope you enjoy all of the projects and, as always, if you see something here that you want to pin for later, please be sure to pin from the original post, not from here.  Thanks!
