Sharing Some Toadstool Love!

I wanted to share this simple tutorial as an enchanted offering for those wee folk on your Christmas list ~ or for those young at heart, woodland lovers.

Toadstool Potato Print Tees!
(or bags, pillow cases, cards, baby clothes, gift boxes or wrappings...)

To make these you will need
Fabric paints
a potato 
paint brush
a tee shirt

To begin cut your potato in half and cut out "handles" on the top of your potato stamp (not absolutely necessary but it makes it easier to stamp with). 

Next cut/carve out your toadstool shapes ~ (the top and bottom are from separate pieces of potato).

    and then firmly press down on your shirt.
Place a piece of cardboard on the inside of the shirt to prevent  it from leaking through.
Blot the surface of your potato to dry up any moisture.
You can dip your toadstool cap into paint or (what I prefer) use a paint brush and paint on the color

Next stamp your stem.

Then with a paint brush carefully add your white dots and a little green grass if you like!
