Life in the green: tablecloth with ginkgo leaves

40 minutes

  • Foam rubber (craft shop)
  • Textile paint in green (eg
      from Marabu; Craft store)
    • White tablecloth (eg from Yorn Casa / Karstadt, about 40 euros)
    • pencil
    • scissors
    • bristle brush
    • Iron

    1. Using the pencil on sponge rubber, draw out 2 different sized ginkgo leaves and cut out with scissors.

    2. Brush the trimmed shape with paint (the bristle brush will give the sheet a little structure).

    3. Turn the foam rubber over and press on the fabric. Carefully lift off and allow to dry.

    4. Fix the paint with the iron according to the manufacturer's instructions.

    Tip: To make a stamp, the sponge rubber can also be glued on a small wooden block.
