Apples are delicious. They also make the perfect stamps. And we had so much fun making our Apple Stamp Apple Basket Craft. This is such a great fall craft!
What kid doesn’t love to stamp with paint, you know? Or play with their food? Cut some strips of paper for the basket, then use real apples to stamp a bushel of apples in the basket. So fun and such a great fall craft for the little ones.
Stamp a Basket of Apples with Apples
To make our Apple Stamp Apple Basket Craft you will need apples, white cardstock, acrylic paint, a brown paper bag, scissors, and glue.
Apple Basket Craft Supplies Needed
- White cardstock
- Acrylic paint – red, green, yellow
- Brown paper bag
Apple Stamped Apples Craft Step by Step Directions
Begin by making snips in a brown paper lunch bag.
And cut into strips.
Now, position a few strips going across on a sheet of cardstock.
Then, use a few more strips to weave under, over and under the other strips, forming a cross hatch basket pattern. Glue in place.
This next step is for adults only. Carefully slice an apple in half.
Next, place a few generous squirts of paint onto a flat surface. We like to use a paper plate. Leave enough room in between colors to allow space for your apple.
Dip the apple into the paint, and firmly press it onto the paper, in the area of the woven basket.
Repeat stamping apples of all of the colors.
Finally, allow the paint to dry completely then hang to display for a lovely fall decoration.
