Apple Stamping

Hand stamping canvas bags is a perfect way to celebrate the Jewish New Year during Rosh Hashanah! Take a trip to your local farm and make sure to pick plenty of apples to dip (with honey) and save a few apples for dipping (in paint)! Any shape or size will do. Follow the steps or watch the video below to learn how.

Materials:
Canvas Bag
Knife
Fabric Paint (yellow, red, green, brown, black)
Paint Brush
Paper Plate
Paper Towel

How To:

Step 1: Cut apple in half lengthwise and let each side dry out on paper towel or cheesecloth for about an hour. Slide a piece of newpaper or cardboard in bag to prevent paint from bleeding to back of bag. Canvas bags can be purchased online or at your local craft store.
