What do DIY Pillows and Potatoes have in common? Nothing, really. But you can use one to create the other. Check out how to make DIY Pillows via Potato Stamping. It's super fun.
I completely forgot about this fun Craft Project. I remember this being one of the first craft activities I get to do in Kindergarten. When I saw this project it brought back fuzzy memories from long time ago. Potato Stamping is such a fun project for kids and adults.
Do you remember something about potatoes too? I have not thought of potatoes much further than eating 'em forever until now. All you need is a potato, something like a knife to carve out a design and paint. You could use a plain pillow cover or make your own from your favorite colored fabric.
Revamp or up-cycle your plain throw pillows and turn them into something amazing. Create seasonal pillows to use around the holidays or everyday accent pillows to match your home decor.

All in all this project takes little time to prepare and make. Most of what's needed you may already have.
Steps to create your DIY Pillows using a Potato:

- spread out fabric or pillow
- paint the raised part of your potato design
- press onto the fabric

Tip: If you get different pillow covers you only have to exchange the insert and storing takes up much less space.
