Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
Since we love fruit stamping crafts here…
I thought I would add apple stamping to the list. I think now we have stamped every fruit and vegetable you can (besides okra, which I would love to do).
I cut the apple in half and decided to go with our basic apple colors. We have red paint for our Macintosh apple and green paint for our Granny apple.
Step 1 – Create Your Apple Stamps
I poured the green and red paint onto a paper plate and had my son firmly press his apple into the paint. Once the apple was completely covered, I then had him firmly press the apple onto our paper and gently pull up.
Voila a perfect apple shape.
The silly little guy chased me around with his apple trying to get me (what a goof ball).
Quick Tip: When apple stamping, stick a fork in the back of the apple. It becomes easier to stamp and not get paint everywhere.
Step 2 – Finishing Touches
I went back over his apples with some brown paint and added a stem to the apples. If I would have thought about it, I might have even added some seeds to the apples.
Hmm…that’s a good idea for another craft project (see a crafters mind is always spinning).
Apple Stamping is so easy right?!
What an easy craft you can do with your kids. The only thing I hate is wasting a perfectly good apple, but hey, that’s a sacrifice us crafters have to make ;)
