I know my blog has been noticeably devoid of autumn crafts. So here you go! I saw this craft on Martha Stewart and I knew I had to try it!
- Fabric paint (I used Tulip Brand "Soft")
- Fabric for printing and fabric for practice
Let's get started...
|Mix your paint...I added a tiny bit of black to yellow to get more of a mustard color|
|Cut your apple in half and make sure the seed holes are looking pretty|
|Paint your apple, nice and thickly|
|Press your apple down on the practice fabric (mine is muslin)|
|Whoops! Good thing I practiced!|
|After my practice, I stamped my real fabric and it came out still a little rough.|
|So I just gently filled it in, not being super thorough so it would still have the stamped look|
|Make a bunch for lots of fall crafts! (I actually carved a "w" into an apple and stamped it on that green apple.)|
I made three fall crafts with my stamped apples: Dyed red onesies with applique, a burlap wall hanging, and another project that I will show you later (...so mysterious...)
I'm pretty sure you could do this with leaves too, but alas, I have no beautiful colored leaves gently falling to the ground. I have to decorate my house and trick my family into thinking it's fall.
Curse this endless summer!!!
|My Little Apple Boys...how cute is that kiss??!|
|Easy wall hanging: Cut some burlap, fray the sides, applique the apple squares, add a ribbon!|
What can you create with your apple stamp??
