  • 1 clementine, orange or other citrus fruit
  • paint brush
  • acrylic paint
  • card
  • hole punch
  • string or ribbon
  • felt tip or permanent marker
  • stencil (optional)


  1. Cut the clementine in half and leave it to dry out overnight.

  2. Paint a thin layer of acrylic paint over the top of the cut-side of the fruit. Press the painted side onto the card, repeating until the sheet of card is filled with prints – you may have to reapply the paint. Leave to dry completely.

  3. Cut the card into rectangles around the clementine prints. Hole-punch the top of each rectangle and tie a 15cm piece of ribbon or string through each hole.

  4. Write the recipient’s name across the print using a felt tip pen or marker, and stencil, if you like.
