We just love this – who ever discovered it is a crafty fruity genius. Cut your celery near the bottom of the stalk, then paint where you have cut. When you stamp this, you’ll find a beautiful rose pattern. Paint paper, make your own beautiful wrapping paper with the kids, or even stamp cloth and make some lovely handmade gifts.

Our last one is blueberries from cork.
This one takes more effort – about 2 minutes more that is. This is still a fast craft idea with the kids (or just on your own – adults are allowed to do craft too!).
Grab a couple of corks that are different sizes – put a little ‘x’ in the end of each cork. Cut another cork in half (for the leaf). Dip one in green, one in blue. Beautiful. Pictures for the kids, Fabric painting for you! Image from MarthaStewart.com
