I have a new nanny family and they have a fun little two year old girl!
Since it is fall and the pacific northwest just looks amazing I am really feeling the craft projects!
I saw this idea on pinterest and thought..Miss E can do that!
(Well, i just looked at the blog and saw that the blogger had her kids do the project too!)
I will add a few more tips that I found out!
Here are all of my supplies.
I cut my apples in half.
Then I used this fun trick to make a handle so it is easier for Miss E to stamp!
It also made a great snack for when I was cutting the burlap to keep her busy.
Here is what the apples looked liked with the "handles"
I put a glob of paint on the plate before i brushed it onto the apples.
I took my burlap and cut out rectangles. Then I just rounded the corners. It doesn't have to be perfect. It sure is a pain in the booty tracing a piece of paper.
I had Miss E practice a few times on paper before stamping the burlap. This helped me figure out that if you do not get a perfectly straight cut then the print isn't very good. Also make sure that the seeds are out of the apple before stamping. Of course, you have to add a hand print!
Here she is stamping the apples. The best part of this project is that each apple can be on a different place on the burlap and it looks very cool! Every time we do an art project I lay down a garbage bag so that cleanup is easy!
I had to touch up the apple prints with a paintbrush because come didn't fully stamp.
Since burlap has holes all over it already all you need to do it string the twine right through!
I drew the stems and seeds on with a permanent marker.
I think it turned out super cute!
Miss E is very proud of her banner and I love that it is not a cheesy kids craft!
