From Martha Stewart comes a really fun back-to-school project that will be super fun to do and the kids will be proud to show off to their classmates!
Apples aren't just for eating. The cut side of an apple half, dipped in candy-colored paint, can be stamped onto otherwise ordinary canvas tote bags and backpacks.
- Markers (optional)
- Cut an apple in half from top to bottom. Make sure the cut is smooth and flat. Use a paintbrush to apply the paint evenly over the cut side of the apple.
- With the apple half, cut side down, stamp the surface of the object you want to decorate. The more times you stamp, the less vivid the print will be, so reapply paint, or use the other half.
- Use additional apple halves to print with different colors, if desired. Use black or green markers to draw stems and leaves.
