  • How to make a picnic blanket . Diy Potato Stamped Picnic Blanket - Step 1
    Step 1

    cut your potato in half. careful to do this as straight down as possible. now carve your design. i love a simple triangle pattern and it seemed very easy for me to not screw up. although i did on the first half of course.

    using your paintbrush, put some paint on the stamp and test it on a piece of paper. when i first tried it, the surface didn’t turn out flat enough so i started over after trying to salvage it. the second half of the potato worked better, but i had to do a back to forth motion to get it to print properly. also, i recommend cutting deeper than i did off of the sides. the potato would get clumped up with paint because of the depth, so to make the process easier, just cut it deeper. test it enough to figure out your stamping pattern and how much paint looks good.

    Step 3

    find a large workspace and start stamping! i used a paper plate and a $1 paintbrush so i could throw them away and be done with it. i convinced my boyfriend the paint wouldn’t seep through onto the hardwood floor. i was wrong, it did. you should probably work on a surface. i sat on the drop cloth and worked my way all the way down, complaining about my back the whole time.
