Wine Cork Clover Stamps: St. Patrick's Day Craft for Kids
- 3 wine corks
- Rubber band or hair tie
- Green paint
- Small dish
- Brown crayon
If you don't have any wine corks on hand, you can always find them at craft stores. Or, just ask your friends to share.
1. Begin by placing the three corks tightly together. You want to stack them like a mini pyramid. You can use glue to reinforce them, but it isn't necessary.
2. Once your corks are stacked, use a rubber band or hair tie to hold them together. Wrap it so it is nice and tight, and so that the corks won't slip.
3. Now, add your paint to a shallow dish or lid that you can easily dip into.
4. Dip the cork stamp into the paint and wipe off any excess. You can use your finger to do that step if you wish or blot it on some towel.
5. Press the stamp firmly to the paper and watch the clover imprint appear!
6. Allow the paint to dry. Add a stem with a brown crayon or marker when done.
Does it get any sweeter than these easy wine cork clover stamps? I don't think so! They are perfect for getting you into the St. Patrick's Day spirit and all things clovers. You can use them to decorate cards, banners, or just to keep little hands busy. When you are done, simply rinse the paint off the ends of the corks and you can use them again. Or, set the corks aside for crafting later on.
Gather your supplies and give these wine cork clover stamps a try. They are such a fun way to use wine corks.
