Tutorial: Apple Stamp Tote
Did you know you can use apples, just like potatoes, as stamps for creating your own designs? I opted to keep the “apple effect” and kept the apples fully intact. It was super simple and easy enough for kiddos to tackle this project all by themselves! I envision this as a cute teacher’s gift or even a reusable grocery bag!
Let’s make one together!
- Generic tote
- Ripe California apples
- Fabric paint
- Fabric pen
Cut your apple in half
Place a large amount of paint onto a paper plate
Saturate the flesh of the apple
Place the painted apple onto the tote. Press down to make sure the apple makes contact with the fabric in every spot.
***Keep a piece of cardboard in between the tote layers to prevent paint transfer***
Lift the apple to reveal your design! Each print will be a little different. That’s what makes this stamping so unique!
Mix your colors and apple slices if you prefer
Use a fabric pen to outline the stamp and make the image stand out
So fun!! What a great way to use up apples that have already passed their prime too…
Go make a few! Post them to our Facebook page to show us your creations!
