Stamps used to make decorative prints are crafted from old linoleum. First, various shapes are drawn onto the back of a piece of self-adhesive linoleum. The shapes are cut out with a utility knife and then adhered onto particle board. To make the decorative print, acrylic paint is distributed over the stamp, then the stamp is pressed onto the canvas (almost any surface can be used). When complete, the stamp can also be used as a wall hanging.
Recycled linoleum is used to make a themed wall hanging. Again, shapes are cut from self-adhesive linoleum, then the cutouts are stuck onto a rustic piece of barn wood. For this project, the linoleum cutouts can be painted, or the original pattern can be used.
