How To Craft Apple Stamps
You Will Need
  • Smock or apron
  • Newspaper
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paper plates
  • Fresh apple
  • Kitchen knife
  • Paintbrushes
  • Construction paper or a paper lunch sack
  • Paper towels
  • Fabric paint
  • Fabric tote bag
step 1Wear apron
Put on your apron or smock and prepare your workspace by laying down newspaper.
step 2Prepare paint
Pour the paint onto the paper plates, using a separate plate for each color.
tip You can use any color paint, but red and green – the colors of apples – are most popular.
step 3Cut apple
Cut the apple in half with a sharp knife. Dip the apple into one of the paints, cut side down, and use a paintbrush to spread the color evenly.
tip Let the apples dry for an hour after cutting and before dipping.
step 4Stamp
Press the paint-covered apple half onto the construction paper or paper lunch sack. Dip the apple in the paint or brush the paint on again for each subsequent stamp, and have paper towels on hand to blot excess paint.
step 5Create a design
Create a pretty design in the other half of the apple by cutting a heart, star, or other shape into the center of the cut side of the apple before applying paint.
step 6Make an apple tote
Use fabric paint and use the apple stamps to create a cute fabric tote bag or grocery bag.
