If you tuned in earlier this week, you would have read several sentences extholling my love for one Felicity Fox, because yes, she is a badass.
I was at the thrift store last week and found this amazing golden hoodie that was just SCREAMING to be turned into something, and as I was planning on continuing with the fox theme anyway so….. I bought it and turned it into this super fun Felicity Fox inspired apple print hoodie!
Yes, you heard me, apple print. What is it with me using food as stamps? Well, for one thing, its cheap. I don’t want to pay $12+ for a stamp that I can make with a 50¢ apple AND get a snack out of it. (I ate the unpainted half). Want to make one in time for halloween or just to have a conversation starter?
Time: 1 hour + dry time
Cost: $15+ (depending on cost of hoodie)
Wes Anderson Level: 12
Hoodie – I found mine at goodwill but you can find a similar one here on amazon.
Lunchbox size apple
Red, brown and green acrylic paint
Large and small paint brush
Kitchen Knife and cutting board
Cut the apple in half. You’ll be only using one half of it so unless you’re doing multiple apple print projects you can either put it in the fridge or eat it (because crafting is hungry work okay!)
Dry off your crafting half of the apple with paper towels. This will help the paint stay on and give you a more even print.Using a large paint brush, liberally coat the apple half with RED paint. Stamp it randomly onto the hoodie, recoating every other stamp. Let the front dry then do the back of the hoodie.
Once your apple prints are dry paint stems on the apples with a small brush and brown paint. Allow to dry 20 minutes.
Paint leaves on the side of each stem with GREEN acrylic paint and a small round brush.
Allow to dry and pair with a cute headband!
