Get Crafty: Cork-Print Trees

My craft projects will now be living under the series Get Crafty. You'll see the same type of projects and the same type of fun; they'll just be gathered together in one great place!


Since the weather has been so nice, we haven't been doing as many craft projects. So, during one rainy day, I decided it was time to get crafting again and we made cork-print trees. I pulled this project together quickly and as a result the set-up and clean-up was rather easy, which left plenty of time for fun.

Materials Needed:
Cork
Paint
Construction paper
Marker


I drew the trunk and branches on brown sheets of construction paper with a marker. Then I gave each girl a wine cork and some green paint. I demonstrated how to do the stamping. Lizzie had fun with the stamping. AJ decided that rolling the cork was much more fun!


Look at those hands! After AJ was tired of rolling the paint on her picture, she started rolling it in her hands.Good thing we were using the washable paints!



You can see the results here, one cork stamped and the other cork rolled! All in all, this was an easy and fun project that you could pull together in no time.

Have you ever used corks for stamps before?

  1. We love using corks for art, but have never tried making a tree with them. Great idea!

  2. Aaah how fun. Corks are great for printing (we used them in a project recently too).

    Your trees are cute!
