Polka Dot Tablecloth DIY

This table cloth DIY was inspired by these napkins from Anthropologie. I loved the color palate and we decided to try to make one using a $15 table cloth and… potatoes! The process took a couple hours but was very simple and because of the imperfect look we didn’t worry too much about how straight our lines were. I’m so pleased with the results! It would be so easy to make a bunch for a wedding or a shower. (ps: Here is the artwork we made with potatoes a few years ago, I still love it.)

Step 1: Cut your potato in the roundest section so that it is 3 inches wide.
Step 2: Pour your paint onto a plate.
Step 3: Open your drop cloth and fold out your tablecloth on top.
Step 4: Dip your potato into the paint.
Step 5: Stamp the paint side down onto your tablecloth. Repeat.
Step 6: Once you’ve finished the design, allow the paint to dry.
