DIY Heart Stamped Dupatta | Pink Chai LivingWith Valentine’s Day around the corner, I’ve been feeling the itch to do a heart inspired DIY. Since I love pairing dupattas as scarves with my outfits, a potato print project was perfect. This heart print dupatta originally belonged to my husband’s grandmother. Like her other dupatta that I updated with pom poms, I’d been saving this one until the inspiration for a project hit.

This is a super easy DIY that you can do with your kids. I also think it would make a really fun Galentines gift! Potato printing is pretty straightforward, but do read my notes before you start to make the whole process a bit smoother.

Notes:

Use a paper towel to dry your potato before you start stamping. A dry potato produces more even shapes.

Put something under your dupatta if it is thin to catch the paint that will seep through. I used plain white paper.

You can use fabric paint or add textile medium to acrylic paints for this project. I went with the second option because I had those items at home.

  1. Cut the potato in half and push the cookie cutter halfway through. Cut some of the excess potato around the heart shape to create a stamp effect.DIY Heart Print Dupatta | Pink Chai LivingDIY Heart Print Dupatta | Pink Chai Living
  2. Start stamping. You can do a pattern like I did, or use a random approach. Just remember to apply thin coats of paint and dab off the excess between stamps. If you are doing a large project, you may have to change potatoes after a while to keep things neat.DIY Heart Print Dupatta | Pink Chai Living
  3. Style and enjoy! Just remember to follow the washing directions on the paint that you use.
