Apple Stamped Gift Bags

It’s finally fall!  I decided I would take a break from all of the Halloween posts and share a fun apple idea!  I love going to the orchard and coming home with bags full of fresh apples!  Since there are no orchards in SW Missouri, I pick extra to give to friends.  These Apple Stamped Gift Bags are the perfect gift!

This is a simple craft and a great activity for kids!

Here’s what you need:

Jute gift bags

Red and green acrylic craft paint

Apple

Sponge brush

Prep your bags by placing a piece of paper inside so the paint doesn’t bleed through.

Cut an apple in half and grab some red and green acrylic craft paint.

Paint the cut side of the apple.  Gently press onto the front of the jute bag and remove.

How cool is that?

Once the paint is dry, remove the paper and they are ready to use.

You could even use this method on a canvas for a fun fall decoration!  The possibilities are endless!

    Jill, another great idea. I love the bags. I have some friends with birthdays in the Fall and it would be great to do these. Fill them up with trinkets, such as earrings,bracelets,key chain,etc. Hugs, Judy B. :)
