Step-by-step brussels sprouts gift wrap

Step 1

Step 1

Gather together everything you need, don’t let those sprouts get away.

Step 2

Step 2

Assemble your stamping station. Roll out your wrapping paper. Cut your sprouts in half. And squirt your pain onto plates. (Go for a dainty dollop rather than a massive splurge.)

Step 3

Step 3

Dip the flat side of your sprouts into the paint. But wait! Not that much. Just a little bit of paint so you can see the pattern when you stamp it. You can always practice on a piece of scrap paper first.

Step 4

Step 4

Stamp away! You can get creative with your own design. Lots of spots? Loads of colours? Go wild!

Step 5

Step 5

Keep your spots as they are for a more traditional look. Or for a more ‘veggie’ design (veggie… edgy… oh we know, it’s awful) you can add some fun doodles with your pen. Suddenly your sprouts looks like Christmas lights… or even Royalty!
