DIY Stamps With Household Items


 
Project & Photo By   Jessica Christman 
First let's start with a tool that every crafter should have, a hot glue gun! If you do not have one, you should get one! I use it for EVERYTHING! They are relatively inexpensive too! Take an old tin, or anything flat and use the hot glue to create a design all your own. The hot glue gun will be a bit hard to keep the glue stream consistent, but even just for patterns thins is a simple and great way to recycle and create your own stamp with tools you already have!

Next up.. Make your own foam on wine cork stamps! The craft foam is SUPER cheap and if your a wine drinker, then you should have a few corks laying around. Also, you could probably go to your local restaurants and ask for them to save corks for you. These were made by


Another fun way to make basic shape stamps is with potatos! They carve nicely and are easy to work with. thsi would be a fun project to do with kids. This potato stamp was made by Melanie Check it out!

Well, there you have it! A few simple and crafty ways to use things around the house and kitchen to create stamps! Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Happy Crafting!
