DIY Potato Stamp Cat Print Shirt

Every year for Halloween I have to a have a new t-shirt to dress up and dress down that just really sets the tone for the Holiday. This year I decided to make one, and it might be the best one.


Here’s what you’ll need:
a t-shirt
acrylic paint
one large russet potato
paper towel
permanent marker
kitchen knife
x-acto knife


Here’s the how to:

  1. First cut the potato in half length wise. Then place the potato cut side down on a paper towel to draw out the moisture.
  2. Use a permanent marker to draw your stamp shape onto the potato.
  3. Trace the design with the X-acto knife about a quarter inch deep.
  4. With the kitchen knife cut around the edge of the potato making sure not to cut into your design. I found it was easier to dig around and make some deep cuts. Remove the cut section of the potato.
  5. Lay your shirt flat on a solid surface, and place the paper inside.
  6. Paint the design and stamp away! If you place the stamp where there is not paper, it’ll bleed so be careful!
  7. When the front side of the shirt is dry flip the shirt over and keep stamping. Once that is dry you’re done!
