DIY Pumpkin Stamps {a kid’s craft}

September 19, 2015 46 By EngineerMommy

I have a fun little kid’s craft for you all today! Who doesn’t love a good, homemade stamp? This stamp is made from … (wait for it) … an apple! Yes, an old apple can be used to make a cool pumpkin stamp using some acrylic paint! It’s such an easy project and the kids really had a lot of fun making little orange pumpkins themselves!

All you need for this project is an old apple. Slice it in half and dip in some orange paint for adorable little pumpkins! You can then draw on a stem, too! Such a fun craft! The page you stamped pumpkins on can then be used as a simple festive wrapping paper for any birthday in September, October or November! It can be used as simple wall art in a playroom or kid’s bedroom. Or it can be attached to a pretty clipboard as a display of a homemade stamp artwork!

Cute, right?
I love my pumpkin stamped paper! I used a set of alphabet stamps I had on hand to write out the word “Pumpkins” too!
