DIY Vegetable Stamps using Romaine Lettuce
I don’t know about you, be we go through lots of lettuce in our house. Normally we send the ends of our lettuce to the chickens, however I saved a few for a fun painting project. Have you tried creating art using simple vegetable stamps?
- Romaine Lettuce ends (the part you would normally compost)
- Paint ~ we used bight acrylic paint
- Paint Brushes
- Paper towels ~ optional
Tip: Leave the cut lettuce ends out over night to dry out. This will help you get a crisper print.
Cut and save the ends of your lettuce bundles. Make as straight of a cut as possible.
Paint the cut end of your lettuce with thin layer of paint. Thick paint like tempera or acrylic work best
Press your stamp onto the paper using even pressure.

The sky is the limit with this DIY stamping project!
You can even add a little glitter or use 2-3 colors of paint to make one print. If you stamp them in bunches, it give it more of a bouquet feel.
This simple technique is perfect for create your own wrapping paper or special cards.
