we did this in elementary school!!and for valentine's day our obss brought white and hot pink daisies in....and there was a contentious debate about whether the pink ones were painted or dyed like this (they were obviously NOT grown pink) and no one believe me you could dye flowers like this!!!

I've seen this done at my favorite local tea shop that, sadly, closed this past Summer. I've wanted to try this but never got around to doing it.
