It resulted in some fun pepper art that only took about 2 minutes to do. I think this would be a great kid-safe craft project for a variety of ages, and the materials are easy to find and very inexpensive...you likely have most of the items around the house.
1 Pepper (any color will do!) - or even try some other veggies for some different shapes
Craft paint or finger paint
Small brush (or a plate to dip your stamp into)
1. Slice the top off of the pepper - making as flat of a plain as possible - leaving the pepper stem to act as a handle.
2. Pour paint in a cup, dab paint on pepper with paint brush, and stamp away! (or pour paint on plate and dip stamp in paint)
3. Lay the stamped paper flat and let dry completely before hanging in a frame.
4. Finally, display for all to see!
I think smaller peppers could make some really cute note cards. (For Christmas cards - some jalapenos could be used to make a snow man - just stamp three circles and draw in a hat, scarf, twig-arms, and a face.)
It's no Andy Warhol, but it's unique and everyone asks about it! Soon I'll be selling signed prints on Etsy...ok, just kidding. :) Have a great week!
