Friday Tutorial Round up – Home printing

So it’s time for another tutorial round up. This week I have really been on a printing kick and have been reading everything I can about home screen printing, color block printing, and stamping. So I just want to share with you a few amazing tutorials out there on the interweb. Some are fresh and new and others are oldies, but goodies.  Don’t forget to click the image to go straight to the tutorial or right click to open in a new window. Here we go!

This is an adorable how to on making a homemade stamp from a wine cork and some foam. You should definitely check out this amazing blog A beautiful Mess by Elsie. Her tutorials are amazing and she is so creative and fun!

This next tutorial is from an older episode of Threadbanger. Oh how I love thee. It’s great because it shows you how you can use a pair of panty hose, some mod podge, and an embroidery hoop to make your own home screen printing screen. This method just might come in handy sometime soon.

This so adorable hand stamped Valentines kit is from Design Sponge. I can’t really say this enough, but if you haven’t already you should go check out design sponge. That site is awesome with great tutorials and blog posts.

I love mushrooms and have a budding interest in mycology. I think this little article on Martha Stewart about printing with the spores of mushrooms is so interesting. This technique is often used to help identify different types of mushrooms, but it makes for some lovely wall art. Or at least to me it does.

The cream of the crop this tutorial from the all incredible Apartment Therapy shows you how to make your own patterned fabric and I mean this is a serious tutorial with incredible results.

This lovely set of wall art was made using potato stamps. Yep, a stamp cut out of a potato. Just lovely. You can find it over on the Oh Happy Day blog.

This tutorial over on Lotta Jansdotter’s blog is for printing these lovely flowers on a soft summer skirt. So pretty, simple, yet a lovely addition to this gray skirt. A very nice blog as well.

One last simple but fantastic clothing printing tutorial is from Elizabeth over on Delightfully Tacky blog. This is such a cute and quick tutorial that you could do in just a few hours for lounging about over the weekend. Super precious.

I hope you find these printing tutorials inspirational and helpful. I know as spring draws nearer I am feeling the need to revamp a few things around the house and hopefully will have the chance use some of these tricks and tips.

Have a lovely weekend!
