So let me start off by saying SORRY! We have been slacking on posting lately but hopefully we can get that under control in the next few days. We have decided to move so we've been focusing on that a lot lately. When we do finally get moved, I'm sure we will have tons of decorating DIYs so get excited about that! Our move means a bigger house which means more entertaining!! Therefore, we started collecting cloth napkins because we love the idea of using cloth napkins instead of paper towels (well, for some things.) Plus, they are waaaaay cuter than paper towels. Anyways, we decided to paint on some plain white napkins so we could add some neon to our collection. We used the potato stamping technique.
Here's what you will need:
- Potato cut in half (in either direction)
- Sponge brushes
- Permanent marker
- Exacto knife
-Blank cloth napkins
Sketch your design on the potato with the permanent marker. It will show up just enough.
Cut away the negative space around the design.
Use the sponge brush to apply paint to the potato.
Stamp the design onto the napkin.
Repeat all around on the napkin.
Let it dry!
On the other side of the potato we carved out some triangles and painted each one a different color. We only stamped this one around the edges of the napkin.
Unfortunately, these stamps will not see another day of stamping but they were so cute! Now I just want to potato stamp everything.
