Easter Bunny Potato Stamps
If you want to make bunny stamps of various colors, just rinse the white paint from the potato, by running the cut potato under warm water, then dry it thoroughly, and you can start stamping again.
- white craft paint
- pink crafting pom pom
- white crafting pom pom or cotton ball
- black crafting paint
- craft paper to stamp on
- 1 pair of googly eyes
1. Begin by cutting the potato in half. Press the open end of the potato onto the towel to help absorb the moisture. This is an important step you don’t want to skip. Should you skip it, your craft paint may not adhere well.
2. Once the open end of your potato is dry, you will dip it in white crafting paint and make sure it is applied in a smooth layer.
3. Press the open end of the potato to your craft paper. Press firmly. When you lift it up, you will see the body of your rabbit has appeared!
4. Dip a finger in the white paint and press it above the body to create ears. You will do this twice, so you have two ears of course!
5. Add some glue to the googly eyes and press them to the upper portion of the oval. Now, take the pink pom pom and press it to the center of the body for a nose. Add glue to the white pom pom or cotton ball and press it to the side of the body.
6. Finish the rabbit by adding whiskers. Take a toothpick and dip it in black paint. Make some quick lines for whiskers.
Your bunny should now be complete and look like it is ready to hop away.
