Make a stunning statement piece using flexible leaf stamps and screen printing ink. Simple and graphic, this silk scarf makes a beautiful DIY gift.

Instructions

1. Iron the silk scarf. Put down kraft paper to protect your work surface. Brush a thin, even amount of ink onto the surface of a leaf stamp. Place the stamp, ink-side down, onto the scarf and apply gentle, even pressure with your palm. (Practice on a scrap of fabric first to get the feel of stamping.)

STEP2

2. Add more leaf prints using different stamps. Don't be afraid to experiment — two or three impressions can be made with a single application of ink. The ink will be bleed through to the back of the scarf, resulting in a print on both sides.

STEP3

3. Let the ink dry completely. Heat-set with an iron according to directions.
