Hello Squirrelly Mind readers! It’s Amy from Delineate Your Dwelling, a creative craft blog. I’m so excited to be here today, as Baby Squirrel is soon to appear and mama Tan has a lot to prepare for! September is upon us and before you know it, the weather will start to cool. Cooling weather means lots of beautiful fall leaves! Today I am sharing these simple Leaf Stamped Towels. They are a perfect project to help bring the outdoors inside your home!
A white cloth
Acrylic Paint (colors of your choice)
The first order of business in this fun leaf stamped project is to go outside and collect your favorite fall leaves. I like to use the bigger leaves, as they typically have a stronger vein pattern.
Before you start to paint, be sure to add in Textile Medium to your acrylics. This will aide in a smooth paint for your towels. If you skip this step, the paint will crack and crumble.
The key to a clean stamp with leaves, is to paint the backside of the leaf. The top typically is more smooth, so the underside is where you will apply a generous amount of paint.
I made three of these and ended up liking ones with all the same leaf pattern and paint color stamped on a single towel, as opposed to mixing the leaves and colors up.
These would be fun to give as gifts, too!
Thank you for having me today, Tan!
