DIY Cork & Craft Foam Stamp

It’s very easy to make your own stamps with things you already have in your home. You’ll just need two things: corks and craft foam. You can use your DIY stamps to print on paper or fabric.

Draw a heart (or any other shape) onto the craft foam. Cut out the shape. Glue the craft foam heart to the cork. Wait some minutes till the glue has dried and your DIY cork stamp is ready to use! Use acrylic paints or watercolors to print on paper, and fabric or silk paints to print on fabric. You can also make your own natural printing inks, for example with red cabbage, red cabbage & baking soda, horse chestnut leaves or DIY iron liquor. I printed a piece of white cotton with pink fabric paint.
