  • Paint brush
  • Paper towels
  • Light-colored canvas or fabric totes, aprons, tea towels, bags, pillow cases, etc. (check local craft stores for more things to stamp)

How to Stamp:

  1. Cut the fruit in half
  2. Pat dry with paper towel to remove excess juice
  3. Apply even coat of paint with brush (test stamp on paper first to make sure you’re using the right amount of paint; too much will mask seed marks and other details, too little will leave blank spots)
  4. Stamp fruit onto fabric in desired location
  5. If necessary, use paint brush to touch up stamp or neaten edges
