Why spend money on a fancy kitchen print when you can make one in just a few minutes? With some simple art supplies, you can create beautiful pieces of art for your walls. These prints look especially nice when they’re hung in groups, so choose a variety of herbs and veggies and make a series. They’re also a great project to do with kids.


  • Leftover herbs or vegetables such as parsley, rosemary, basil, mushrooms, celery
  • Ink pad
  • Scrap Paper
  • White Card Stock


1. Select a vegetable or herb you want to print. Hardy vegetables or herbs with pretty leaves work best. We chose parsley for its delicate leaves.

2. Press the parsley, or your plant of choice, flat onto an ink pad. Press until the leaves are well coated. (If you do not want to get ink on your hands, use a piece of scrap paper to press on top of the parsley.)

3. Once the parsley is inked, center it onto a piece of white card stock.

4. Using the scrap paper, press the herbs onto the card stock.

5. Lift the herbs off and voila — you have a beautiful print that’s perfect to frame for your kitchen.
