{Kid’s Craft} DIY Apple-Stamped Placemats for Fall!

It’s officially September, so it’s time to decorate for fall (even if it’s still 100 degrees outside…) - I’m so excited to show you a fun project I did with my girls a couple of weeks ago to add a little touch of fall to our kitchen table: DIY Apple-Stamped Placemats!

This project was easy, my kids loved it, and I used things I already had on hand so it cost me nothing!

You’ll Need:

Sturdy Fabric cut into 12” x 18” pieces (I made four)
Fabric Paint or Acrylic Paint mixed with Liquid Fabric Medium
Apple, cut in half
Cutie-pie Kiddo Helpers :)


I used cotton duck cloth for our placemats – after cutting, I simply washed and dried them for a rustic frayed edge.  We kept it traditional used red and green for our apples, but any color would be fun so feel free to experiment!

** Kid’s Craft Tip** Kraft paper works great to protect your work surfaces while crafting (especially when kiddos are involved).


Coat apple stamp with paint (you might need to help with this part)…


And stamp away.


Allow your paint to dry and follow instructions for setting paint (if applicable).  That’s it!  You’re ready to set your fall table with your new apple-stamped placemats and if you’re a blogger like me, take the obligatory photos!  My kiddos always think mama’s a little crazy when I snapping photos of my projects – do yours act this way too?
