Easy Foam Leaf Stamps

I love the colors of fall.  The deep greens, reds, oranges and yellows make me want to create in my art studio.  We decided to make some leaf paintings by making our own stamps out of foam.   It is so easy to do.  All you need is some foam (we buy sheets at the dollar store), a sharp pencil, paint, paper and a foam roller or paint brush.

Draw with a sharp pencil any design in the foam and make sure you press pretty hard.  We decided to do leaves since it is fall.

Roll the paint over the design or you can use a paint brush.   We tried to mix colors that would look good together like green, yellow and white.

Press the foam design down on the paper and you have a beautiful work of art!

My one daughter decided to cut out her leaf and then stamp it.  She added layers of foam to the back of it so she could hold it.  She was modelling it after the ones you put on the back of your phone.  You can also glue it to a block of wood or a cork.

I would love to see your beautiful stamp paintings!  It is so easy to do with kids and adults can do this as well.  I sometimes want a design in my paintings but just can’t find the right stamp so I make my own.
