  • Potato
  • Marker
  • Exacto Knife
  • Knife
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush

The first step is to slice your potato in half. Let each slice sit on a paper towel for 30-45 minutes so the paper towel will absorb some of the moisture. Then draw a simple design on the face of the potato using your marker. Take your Exacto knife to trace the design, then slice off a 1/4″ slice of the potato, carefully circling the potato so as NOT to cut off your design, but to remove the circle surrounding it so you have a stamp sticking out. Repeat with the other slice. Upgrade your table cloth and brush up on your grade school art skills with this quick and easy DIY Potato Stamp! // Salty CanaryNext, use a paint brush to put paint onto your stamp, then stamp away! I got about 2-3 stamps each time before I had to re-ink.
