Make a Rose Stamp with Celery

I'm sure you've seen potato prints before, but how about celery prints?  That's right, celery!  I'm absolutely amazed at how the cut-off ends of a bunch of celery, a part which would normally be destined for the garbage can or compost pile, looks strikingly like a rose when used like a rubber stamp.  Maureen of Maureen Cracknell Handmade used her celery stamp to make beautiful Valentine cards; this would also be a cute and easy way to make hand-stamped wrapping paper, and could have many uses in DIY wedding projects.  [how to stamp a rose using celery]

Project estimate:

  • Celery, on hand or $1 and up
  • Ink pad or paint, on hand

Total:  Free and up

    Thanks for the post, I am ready to give all the veggies in my fridge a try now!

  • Maureen Cracknell said:

    Thanks so much for sharing this! Since, we have given a few other veggies a try — any bunch of leafy greens will work if you cut off the end similar to this celery, okra, and we even tried it with citrus, cutting out the fruit leaving the rind and ribs in place leaves a wonderful pinwheel design.

    Have fun! Thanks again!!!
