Potato Stamping the Easy Way

Here’s what you’ll need to make your potato stamps:

  • A large potato
  • Cookie cutters – preferably ones like these that we used which have an imprint in them and will create more of a design when you stamp them
  • Paint

How to Make a Potato Stamp 

1. First cut your potato in half. Then press your cookie cutter into the potato as far as you can. Make sure the imprint portion of the cutter goes into the potato. If it doesn’t, flip the potato over and push down hard over top the potato.
