Get set for Halloween with the humble spud. Potatoes make a great, easy-to-use printing block. Just pick your potato, create your design and carve out your stamp. Our team had lots of fun making these ghoulish T-shirt designs using potato stamps – and you will too!

What you’ll need:

potatoes (different types and sizes)
pre-washed t-shirt
cardboard to place inside t-shirt
fabric paint (use OPAQUE white for dark shirts)
paint brushes
paper towels
cutting board

Tools for cutting and carving:

kitchen knife
cookie cutters and aspic cutters
kitchen scissors
potato peeler and/or apple corer
pencil (push into cut surface of potato to make small circles)
