10 Amazing DIY art and craft ideas using vegetables

Take a look at 10 amazing art and craft, DIY ideas that make use of vegetables. Now gift your loved ones something really creative (and edible too!)

As a kid, I would often indulge in vegetable stamping. Nothing useful, just that whenever I felt bored, would ask mom to give me a sliced carrot which was dipped in a pool of purple, pink and blue, and there it went- a stamp on the wall. Later, all the mess had to be cleared. There I went, spending hours and hours rubbing the wall with the sponge and water 😉

But, I don’t mean to put you and your little one in agony. DIY stamping, painting and all the art and craft involving vegetables can be fun too. Mummies and daddies must chop vegetables neatly, in thin slices or maybe into bits and pieces with proper structure and well-defined outlines. Hand it over to your babies and let them paint or stamp the walls, linen, plain bags, white- tees, cream (plain with no print on it) scarves with them. A thank you or a greeting card can also look cute with such art! And on a special day, let them gift a flower made out of veggies to their loved ones. Yah! These are edible too 😉
