DIY Pumpkin Stamps {a kid's craft}
Sep 192015
 

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!

  1. What a fun idea! We just went apple picking, so we have a TON of apples in our house to do this with!

      Or if you have an apple that’s past its prime and you don’t want to eat it! You can use it as a stamp!
      Thanks for commenting, Robin!

  2. Oh what a cute diy,… thats amazing and unique idea.thanx for sharing

  3. What a cute and clever idea! I so miss doing things like this with my little ones. I do not have grandkids yet either as my little ones are very young adults right now – I can wait lol. I will however look forward to doing cute crafts like this with the grandkids when they come. Thanks for this cute and easy to do idea!

  4. What a fun creative idea. I was really into arts and crafts when I was little, I should take it up again.

  5. That is so cute as a craft. And so easy for everyone. I love it, it is adorable.

  6. That’s an amazing idea! I absolutely love it. So cute and very easy to follow!

  7. What a fun craft for fall. I love signs of fall and pumpkins are sure one of them! The best way to decorate!

  8. How fun! I think my Kiddies (and hey maybe even me) would have a blast doing something like this. Thanks so much for sharing.

  9. Oh, these are so cute. What a brilliant idea. I never would have though of using a real apple. My girls are so into stamps lately. They will be so thrilled to do all these projects.

  10. These look so fun! We have SO many apples right now. So this could be a fun idea for us to do later on this week!

  11. Such a great idea! Who knew that you could make a pumpkin out of an apple? 😉 Although my kid is still too small for this craft, I think this is a neat idea. I like that you can use old apples, and not necessarily new apple, because in the end I don’t think you will want to eat the apple that is covered with paint. Thanks again for the cute idea. Happy Fall!

      Yes, I definitely like this project on old apples- ones I would wind up throwing away anyway! Thanks for visiting, Anita!

  12. This is such a cute idea! When my nephews were younger I loved it when they brought us artwork for our fridge it always added so much ot our kitchen to see it there. I never would have thought to use an apple as a stamp like this.

  13. These are so adorable. I really like the sparkles of the stems, too – we will definitely pick a rainy day this fall (we get so many) and do this craft together with the kids.

  14. Super cute craft! I will definitely give this a try since I live on an apple orchard! I had better, right? Thanks for sharing! Loved the post! :)

  15. This is a great way to enjoy and had fun my kids, Im sure my kids would love this new activity.

  16. I love that you can use older apples. I hate buying fruit and “wasting” it for craft honestly. This is one craft I can get behind for sure plus, it’s super cute!

    • EngineerMommy

      Thanks for visiting! I totally agree on not liking to waste fruits for crafts! The one I used for this project was already getting mealy and brown! :)
      But it still made a nice stamp!

  17. What a really cute idea! We have so many apples around here and of course being apple season they are all of the place. I will have to do this with the kiddos.

  18. The shape of half an apple really does make an ideal pumpkin for this craft. I’ve never done any crafts with my nephew that involved paint (or stamping for that matter). This looks like something my god-daughter would appreciate.

  19. Omg what a cute idea!!! My fighter is 3 and would totally love a craft like this. Perfect for fall!

  20. This looks like awesome crafts! I love when kids are so imaginative and can practice their arts :)

  21. This is perfect. I am always looking for something crafty to do with my kids in the Fall and this is seriously so easy. Thanks for the tip!

  22. This is SUPER cute and adorable. Love it!

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  23. Super cute craft Jennifer! We made apple prints yesterday with my girls, and they enjoyed it alot! Such a good idea to use same method to make pumpkins! Thank you for sharing!
