Watercolor Fruit Art

Freshen up  your walls with our potato stamp tutorial for creating your own watercolor fruit print in four effortless steps:


  • large potato
  • sharp knife
  • water color paint
  • card stock
  • water


  1. Print or write a favorite phrase in the lower center of card stock. Ours reads “The Sweetest Thing”.
  2. With the knife, cut fruit shape out of potato. Make sure the “stamp” part is as smooth as possible. Cover the smooth area of the potato entirely with paint.
  3. Press down in the center of the card stock, making sure all areas touch the paper.
  4. Paint any additional details such as melon rind and seeds, then allow to dry.
