DIY Potato Print Napkins
Brighten up your table with some fun, personalized napkins. Try creating your own DIY Potato Print Napkins with items sourced from your local Goodwill NCW.
Here are the items you’ll need:
- 2-3 russet potatoes
- Fabric paint
- Cutting board and knives
Step 1: Cut your potatoes. Carefully use the knife to cut your potato in half. Then, take time to cut patterns into the open side of the potato — lines, squares, circles or whatever you like.
Step 2: Prep fabric paint and start potato printing. Use a palette or plate to place an even amount of fabric paint down to be transferred to your napkin. We suggest using a brush to sweep over the paint to make a nice, thin layer.
Dip your patterned potato into the paint and begin printing, making sure to use even pressure.
Reapply paint between each print to ensure even coverage and a good print.
You can choose to make your potato prints in a pattern or get creative with a more abstract design.
Follow the directions on your fabric paint for proper drying time.
Step 3: Enjoy your unique napkins. Sustainably shopping this holiday season? These DIY Potato Print Napkins make a fun, unique gift!
