How To Make Awesome Pumpkin Apple Stamps
Here’s where things start to get fun. It’s time to let your child get creative with these pumpkin stamps.
Step 1: Collect the supplies need for your apple stamps
Use the list above to collect your supplies. Cut the brown pipe cleaners into small pieces to use as stems.
Next, chop in half an apple or two, depending on how many kids will be doing the project and how many different paint colors you will use.
Step 2: Paint your apple
Have your child use a paintbrush and paint the entire apple surface. Make sure to cover the apple with a thick coat of paint.
We used blue and orange paint for this craft, but that was only because that’s what I had on hand. Keep in mind water-based paints won’t work well because the apple is already wet.
Step 3: Press your painted apple onto cardstock paper
Take your apple and press them firmly onto your paper. I recommend using cardstock paper because it is thicker. However, construction paper or computer paper will work fine if that’s all you have on hand.
Once you start doing the apple stamps, you will be able to tell if you do or don’t have enough paint on the apple.
Step 4: Let your artwork dry
Once your child is done stamping, have them set aside their artwork until it’s dry. Depending on how much paint was used and the thickness of the paper. It shouldn’t take long to dry.
Step 5: Assemble Your Pumpkin Stamp Craft
It’s time to assemble your craft!
Let your child place the googly eyes and stems where they want. This is a perfect time if they want to add additional decorations to their pumpkin.
